Hi Lee,

You didn't say the type of film, but HBO documentaries are available through Films on Demand.  There is a delay from the time of the live broadcast, and I'm not sure if they license these individually or only via subscription packages.

Best, Theresa

A campus organization wants to show a film that is (as far as we can tell) only available on HBO or Amazon Prime. Has anyone negotiated a public performance rights license with either of them? Or know if they have an "academic" viewing policy like Netflix has? We do have the DVD, but not a public performance license for it. I also think that it would be shown via a password protected Zoom session for campus affiliates only.

Thanks for any insight anyone has.
