I am an existing member, how will this affect me?
In order to be able to order a download product, existing members need to log in and ‘modify their profile’ There are a few extra details that need to be filled in regarding your institution.

Video Download Process
Applying for video download permissions
Before you begin ordering your first video download, please make sure you have been approved as a licensed institution.
Even if you’ve previously been approved as a DVD customer it’s best to double check – especially if you’ve never downloaded a program from us before – because some of our conditions have changed.
It’s easy to do – just login to your profile and have a look at your membership form. You might be automatically sent to your profile page at login, but if not, you can get there by clicking “Modify profile”, on the right side of your screen in the “Your Cart” menu option.
Fill in institution details
To approve your membership we need to know your institution details. If this section of the form is blank, please fill it in and submit. Then we’ll send you an email when you’re approved to order.
To fast track the approval process we recommend using your school email account and billing address.
To familiarise yourself with downloads before your first order please try our free test file. Also if you are using a content management system try uploading the file into it.
When you order a download program, we’ll automatically email you a link to the download.
For individual episodes the link expires at midnight the same day you place your order.
For series downloads, links are only activated when you click on the individual episode.
