Signing Up as a School

5. If your organisation doesn't appear, you will be directed to provide your organisation's URN/SEED/IRN number, depending on which nation of the UK your organisation is in. 

For help on where to find this number, please see How do I get a licence to stream films?

6. If you're unable to find your organisation's URN/SEED/IRN number, you can skip this step for now, continue your registration, and return to it later. 

Please note that if you choose to continue registering without a URN/SEED/IRN number, you will not be able to stream films on Into Film+ until you have provided this information.

7. If you input an incorrect URN/SEED/IRN reference number, or if your reference number is not recognised, you will be notified, and have the opportunity to go back and try again. You can also choose to continue registering without a reference number by manually entering your organisation's address. 

Please Note: if you continue by manually entering your organisation address, you will not be able to stream films on Into Film+ until you have provided a valid reference number.

9. If no reference number was provided, or if we were unable to verify your organisation details for any reason, you won't be able to stream films on Into Film+. However, you will still be able to access to Into Film's extensive catalogue of educational resources and training opportunities via our Learning Platform, 

You can go back and provide a reference number to verify your organisation at a later date to finish upgrading your Account and access Into Film+.

Non-School Sign-Ups

1. If you selected a non-school organisation type, such as a youth club or library, you will be directed to input your PVS Licence reference. Please note the number required is the Account No. which can be found on the certificate document. 

Please take care not to enter the Certificate No. as this will not be recognised.

For more information on licences, please see: How do I get a licence to stream films?

2.  If you receive a message to say your PVS Licence Account No. is invalid, check to see you have entered it correctly and change if necessary. Please ensure you have not entered the Certificate No., as this will not be recognised. 

If you have only just purchased a PVS Licence, you may have to wait up to 4 business days before you will be able to access Into Film+ while your new licence is processed by Filmbankmedia.

If you require a licence please contact Filmbankmedia or continue to register, however, you will be unable to stream films on Into Fim+ until your PVS Licence Account No. has been provided and verified.

Signing Up from Outside the UK 

If you are located outside the UK, you can continue to register by manually entering your address, but unfortunately you won't be able to watch Into Film+ or start an Into Film Club at present. If you continue to register, we will keep you up to date on parts of the Into Film offer you can use, and we'll let you know should Into Film+ ever become available to international users.
