    Showing sky tv in school?

    Can Sky tv be shown in school via tv or the sky player website? Or do you need a public license like pubs etc require?
    Guessing need the public license but cant find anything on sky's website that says.

    Edit

    With the sky player I mean if for example I own Sky at home and have access to the sky player website am I allowed to use this in school for students to view?

    No you cannot do that, sky do licences for school but you'll have to ring them.

    You could show Freesat (depending what you want to watch). You just need to make sure the school have a TV license. The same with Freeview too.

    Is there enough educational content to justify the fee?

    Depends what your after really, full HD content from the History / Discovery channel etc, plus we had a 3D projector installed into our lecture theatre and Sky 3D comes with the package but not much content suitable in 3D yet but I am sure it will grow other than the occasional wild life documentary.

    We also utilise the BBC News / Sky News streams on our display screens around the school and utilise the Sky+ to record as and when required.

    For the £140 a year we feel we get enough use from it as it would have cost us around that figure to repair our old analogue TV aerial.

    With the Sky+ is it easy enough to get the videos off the box?

    Also easy is it to get a stream off the device? or do you just get given a normal Sky+ box?

    It's just a normal Sky+ box and you'll need some additional hardware to get the recordings or a TV tuner should do the job.

    Something a bit like this:

    How do I copy recordings from a Sky+ box? | TV and Tech UK
