    Netflix, do you allow your teachers to use it for the classroom?

    I can't seem to find a definitive answer to this question. I've read the Netflix T&C's and it seems to be unclear. There are various posts on the net from the US that say you can but it's a bit of a grey area and anyway it might be different over there. Anyone in the UK know the answer to this, is it legal?

    Personal and non-commercial I can see how using it in a School can be covered under personal use, have you contacted Netflix?

    I haven't contacted them yet, but might do later. These places aren't always prompt with a response, so I thought I'd try here first in case anyone's already been down that road.

    This was discussed here: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/behind...4-netflix.html and here: Netflix use in schools

    Basically, all Netflix has said is that its not permissible to use in school but they aren't actively pursuing offenders...

    Welcome to Netflix how may i help you today ?



    16 minutes ago You

    We are a school, and a teacher has asked if Netflix is allowed to used within the classroom for educational use? I am a network technician by the way and we are in the UK


    14 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    Oh hey pleasure meeting you today friend and i totally understand what you mean ... Actually netflix accounts purpose is for personal use only ..but as long as its not a commercial thing where you are going to charge to make back revenue then its all good from our end



    13 minutes ago You

    Ok great, Is there any chance you can put that in an email to me, I can give you my address?


    11 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    Oh no actually i am actually unable to my friend .



    10 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    9 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    Hey still here with me friend ?



    8 minutes ago You

    Yep


    6 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    Gotcha its ok to go ahead and have streams in the school just as long as its not a commercial thing like in the middle of the streets it can be privately public if you understand what i mean my friend.



    5 minutes ago Netflix Kyle

    Because we are an inbound chat center we dont actually send emails and such ..But what you can do is at the end of this conversation you will get the option to request this transcript



    2 minutes ago You

    Ok, I guess that will do, thanks. I just wanted something to cover myself if I enable it on our network

    Just a word of warning, Netflix will chew down large amounts of bandwidth when in 1080p and 5.1 (1.1-1.2 mb/s)

    We block Netflix and Amazon Instant for all pupils & staff. Nobody has even questioned it or asked to use it here...
