It will launch with about 810 titles, but will be filled out to 1200 titles by December 31, 2017. Select this collection for the most comprehensive set of documentary film.
  • The Docuseek2 Essential Collection
    The Docuseek2 Essential Collection contains the most recent and most popular titles from our participating distributors. At its launch, the Essential Collection contains about 700 titles, but will be filled out with new releases from our participating distributors, to reach 800 titles by December 31, 2017.
  • Complete and Essential Collection licensing options
    The Docuseek2 Essential Collection and the Docuseek2 Complete Collection are available in four licensing models: 1 year subscription; 3 year subscription; Life of File Evidence-Based Acquisition (see the next session); and Life of File licenses for all films in the collection.
  • Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA)
    Our Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) model requires an upfront payment for 40 Life of File licenses. For the next twelve months, you will have access to the selected collection (either Essential or Complete -- see above). At the end of the twelve months, you then select the 40 titles to keep. See the Life of File description below for details on our Life of File program.
  • Individual Title licenses
    We also 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, with price breaks at 15 titles, 30 titles, 60 titles, 100 titles and 200+ titles. Available only from Docuseek2
  • Tokens
    You may purchase tokens (minimum quantity of 15) that can be exchanged at a later date for a title license. Token purchases enable you to qualify for the better per-title price when you don't know exactly which titles you need. Tokens are priced the same as title licenses. We prefer that the tokens are used within a year. To exchange a token, just drop us an email. The license period for the film begins when the token is exchanged. Available only from Docuseek2
  • 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 smaller thematic samplers attractively priced to help schools get started with streaming. 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
    Our Life of File option licenses the right to stream a file for the life of the H.264/.mp4 codec/file format from your equipment or from ours. If we stream files for you, an annual server fee applies after the first year.
