Splendid Shop Update - September 2023
End of our free-streaming offer
As you might know, for the last 2 years we have been offering free online streaming of our videos to owners of any of our DVDs. This was to support remote teaching during COVID-enforced lockdowns.
This offer came to an end on 1 September 2023, and we will no longer offer free streaming to people who have previously bought DVDs.
However, now we are firmly in the streaming era, we have updated our shop with a range of new streaming video/teaching resources offers.
- Introducing! 1-year streaming for our production videos (£35) – in addition to our existing 30-day streaming you can now get access to the stream of each of our shows for 1 year for £35.
Regular Splendid shoppers will notice that this is the same price our production DVDs, and we are combining these two products so that each 1-year rental comes with a free optional DVD (or if you prefer: each DVD comes with FREE 1-year streaming!). It’s the best of both worlds – or, if you already own the DVD but would like to take advantage of a year-long rental of lovely high-definition video that you can share with your department and/or students*, you can decide not to include the DVD during checkout.
- But that’s not all! With the 1-year stream you can take advantage of our multi-buy offer, which works the same as it did in the DVD-times – the more titles you buy (in a single purchase) the more you save! Full details are here.
- But even that is not all! We have upgraded our Production Super Pack to the Streaming Super Pack which includes a 1-year stream, optional DVD, physical script and the education pack (which comes as both a hard copy and a sharable online-only version) – all for the same reduced price of £55.
Meanwhile the £7.50 30-day streaming options are still available (any existing rentals will be unaffected), along with our excellent streaming-only training videos, and physical script and education packs.
We have also updated the purchasing process to make streaming video easier to buy for someone else.
Access to the video is now managed by a digital coupon that is automatically generated by your purchase and sent to the email address of your choice. This makes it easy for finance officers to buy access on behalf of drama departments for example, or your mum to buy you a streaming coupon for your birthday (highly recommended).
Once rented, the video is linked to a Splendid Shop account, which users can log in to at any time during the rental period to watch the video. *Unlike Netflix, we are happy for account details to be shared within institutions (within reason) so that a single rental can for example be watched by students at home.
All the new options are now live at the Splendid Shop, and there are extensive step-by-step instructions for buying, sharing and streaming your videos if you need more information. Our unique selection of Mind Maps, CPD videos and free resources are all still available as before.
