We're delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new feature for Into Film+ Premium users, which we hope will make lesson planning easier, and further revolutionise the way you use film in the classroom.

Up until now, access to Into Film+ has been only been possible while you're on the site of the location that your Public Video Screening (PVS) Licence is registered to. Usually, that means to access Into Film+ streaming, you need to be on school grounds.

Our new feature, available exclusively to Into Film+ Premium users*, changes all that. 

Accessing Into Film+ outside of your registered location will give you greater flexibility when lesson planning, and you will be able to create highlights and assemble playlists from anywhere, helping save you valuable time amid busy classroom schedules.

How does it work?

To make use of this new feature, you must first verify a mobile number while at your registered location. This allows us to ensure that it's still you that is accessing the service, even when you're not at your registered location.

Once your mobile number is verified, when attempting to stream a film from outside your registered location, you'll be able to request an Into Film+ access code. This will be sent to your registered mobile number via text (SMS), and once inputted, will grant you temporary access to the service from anywhere in the UK - be it a local library, a café you like to work at, or even from the comfort of your own home. 

After a short while (around four hours), your access will expire and you'll need to request a new code to continue working remotely. You can do this as many times as you like, giving you more freedom than ever before to make the best use of Into Film+ streaming and all its associated features.

Please note: even with an access code, you must still be within the UK to use this feature.

* The Into Film+ Premium service is currently only available to Department for Education (DfE) schools in England, as the Premium extension to Into Film+ is specifically funded by the DfE. This new feature has also been developed as part of the Premium extension under DfE funding.

If you are not a Department for Education-funded school and would like to express your interest in gaining access to Into Film+ Premium, please Register Your Interest here. Please note that doing this means you consent to receiving communications from Into Film. We never share your data without your explicit consent, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
