Pricing, Rights & Usage
Am I allowed to use programs purchased from CBC Learning in the classroom?
All programs you purchase from us can be used in a classroom or any other public setting — as long as no admission fee is charged for your screening.
Can I share programs purchased from CBC Learning?
Programs purchased from us – regardless of format – are intended for use within your institution only. Permission to loan, share or donate programs to any other organization is not included with your purchase.
I’m purchasing for a government ministry or department — how can I place my order?
Government ministries and departments, we would be happy to provide you with a price quote to use CBC content province-wide or across Canada. Please call Veronica Barton, Head of Institutional Sales: (514) 597-5918 | email@example.com
What are the benefits of downloading?
FAST DELIVERY: You will have access to your download within one (1) business day.
EASY TO SHARE: You can post digital files to your password-protected intranet, or you can share files by email within your organization.
BURN TO DVD: If your computer has DVD-burning software, you can use any files available in ISO format to create your own DVDs.
What formats are available?
MP4, WMV and DVD disc image (ISO format)
Can we post CBC Learning programs to our website?
If you purchase a download from us, you can post the video to your institution’s password-protected intranet or portal, but files cannot be posted to any website accessible to the public.
Can I post CBC Learning programs to YouTube?
NO, our files cannot be posted to any website accessible to the public — whether it’s YouTube or your organization’s public website.
Why is the DVD price higher than the download?
Digital distribution has increasingly become the standard in the educational market. DVD orders are declining, and lower volume leads to higher production costs. We’ve therefore decided to focus on digital formats, with an eye to meeting the growing market demand.
Our digital offering is very competitive. A teacher can download our programs — and even burn them to DVD — for as low as $99.
My institution doesn’t have the capacity to use downloads. Can I still get a DVD?
Yes, all of our programs continue to be available on DVD. But please don’t forget that any downloads available in ISO format can also be used to burn DVD copies for use within your organization.
With the new Bill C-11, why do I need to purchase programs from CBC Learning for a classroom screening?
CBC Learning is your only source for commercial-free CBC programs. Our programs, regardless of format, contain no advertising. By contrast, any programs streamed at CBC.ca and Radio-Canada.ca include advertising at regular intervals.
We offer you long-term access to CBC programs. On CBC.ca and Radio-Canada.ca, again by contrast, programs are only temporarily available.
In many cases, our titles are the only commercially available versions of programs that have broadcast on CBC.
Any reproduction, distribution and/or communication to the public of any works from this website, in whole or in part, for any purposes, including for educational purposes, is prohibited, unless you obtain a prior license from CBC/Radio-Canada authorizing such use.
