Individual Title licenses

  • We license individual titles for one week, one semester (110 days), one year, three years or Life of File (see below). Per title prices drop based on the number of titles licensed and the license term, with price breaks at 15 titles, 30 titles, 60 titles, 100 titles and 200+ titles. This option requires a minimum order of 15 titles to qualify for a consortium discount.


  • Institutions may purchase tokens (minimum of 15) that can be exchanged at a later date for a single title license. Token purchases enable the customer to qualify for a lower per-title price when the needed titles are unknown. Tokens are priced the same as title licenses. We prefer that the tokens are used within a year. To exchange a token, just email The license period for the film begins when the token is exchanged.

Thematic sets, samplers and series

  • We have curated thematic sets of titles that typically have a more attractive license fee than if the titles were licensed individually. Thematic sets exist for many academic disciplines. We also have thematic samplers (typically 12 to 15 titles) attractively priced to help schools get started with streaming. In addition, many titles belong to a series. These series may be licensed as one product. The series license fee is also typically better than licensing as single titles.

About Life of File
