You may know of a certain company that charges its customers to stream movies onto their computers or electronic devices. You may also know that this company (it rhymes with flet-nicks) just raised its monthly subscription fees for most of its customers. This same company not only raised its prices, but is now delivering less content.
But did you know that here at Fontana Regional Library, we also offer streamed videos through NCLive? Moreover, not only did we not raise our prices (it’s still free), but more titles have been added!
Recently, to announce the new videos, the folks at NCLive posted this to their blog:
North Carolina libraries aim to educate and entertain parents, teachers, history buffs, and PBS fans of all ages with an array of new online educational videos now available for free in streaming format.
North Carolina libraries purchased the new video content from PBS, including the complete 14-part award-winning Civil Rights Era history documentary, Eyes on the Prize.
The new videos also include the popular Ken Burns’ series The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, and Masterpiece Theater titles including Wuthering Heights, Turn of the Screw, Wind in the Willows, Anna Karenina, and many more. Patrons can watch these videos at http://media.nclive.org, or via local library websites.
So, how do you get access to all this content? Well, the good news is that it’s easier than ever to log in at NCLive. As John informed us in this recent post, users no longer need to know a password. You will only need your Fontana Regional Library card to log in. Go to the NCLive media pagewhere you’ll be asked to log in. First, you’ll need to choose Fontana Regional Library from the drop-down menu, then you’ll be asked to enter your library card number. Voilà, you’re ready to start viewing streamed videos – for free!
