In an effort to compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime members can now stream videos. According to the website, Prime membership will include free upgrades to 2 day shipping and unlimited, commercial-free, instant streaming of 5,000 movies and TV shows at no additional cost. This is quite exciting for those with the membership. Many schools may block Netflix but keep Amazon open.
Remember one can show up to 15% of a movie in a classroom without repercussion of breaking copyright. Many areas of the country have regional centers who purchase media with the performance license. Take advantage of these groups. In my district we have BOCES which can provide videos for viewing within the copyright environment.
