According to Section 29.5(c) of the Copyright Modernization Act, if a television show or news report is being broadcast at the same time your class is scheduled and it is of importance to the lecture, you may show that television show or news report in class while it is being broadcast.

Recording live television broadcasts to then play back in face-to-face classrooms can be done within certain restrictions. See here < > for more information.

Home cable TV "on demand" subscription services have licences that set out the terms and conditions of use. iTunes, Netflix, Bell Satellite TV, Rogers Anytime TV, Shomi, CraveTV, etc. cannot be used in class due to licensing restrictions.

Consider using the video content -- including documentaries, educational programs, and feature films -- that we have through our licensed video databases such as Films on Demand, Kanopy, Curio, NFB, and McNabb Connolly in your courses. Videos from all of these may be shown in class at any time and linked to within MySeneca.
