Contact the content creator and ask what their policy is. Some creators of televised content are very accommodating to educators while others are not. 

The other alternative is to show legally acquired media (DVDs, CDs, etc.) in the classroom. We suggest that you work with your department to acquire a legal copy of a DVD that may hold the TV show you want to show in class. Often this means purchasing a copy of the televised broadcast directly from the network. 

Alternately, you can also contact your subject liaison and suggest that the library purchase a copy. 

The library Copyright LibGuide includes sections about classroom, online, basics, fair use, and permissions. Further questions? Contact Josh Petrusa, Irwin Library, or 317-940-9236 or  Scholarly Communication Librarian Jennifer Coronado, 940-9549,
