On Friday 6 October I played the documentary “Rachel’s Farm” to the F2F class.
“Rachel’s Farm”, and 2,000 other documentaries, are on the docplay.com website.
docplay.com is a new streaming service in Australia that is looking for customers.
To entice people to join they are offering a 14 day free trial to access all documentaries.
A docplay subscription costs $8/month, that is just $2/week to watch documentaries.
I took them up on their offer and I found that they have very good documentaries.
So if you like watching documentaries on your computer, docplay.com may suit you.
If you are interested, this is what I recommend.
- Open docplay.com and look at the documentaries on offer.
- Scroll down clicking on any documentary of interest.
- Watch some of the trailers to see if they really interest you.
Not every documentary has a trailer, but many do.
- If you decide to join, click on the Join Free for 14 Days button.
- Fill in your email address and invent a password.
Don’t use a password that you use for anything else.
Write the password in a safe place where you keep all your passwords.
- Enter your credit card information and click on Start My Subscription
After you sign up you need to spend time looking at documentaries.
In the two week free trial you should aim to view at least 5 documentaries.
They are mostly around 1.5 hours long so it is not a big commitment.
How the subscription works
You can cancel your subscription at any time during the 2 week free trial.
If you do this you will pay nothing.
If you don’t cancel you will be billed $8 on the 15th day.
Then another $8 a month later, etc. unless you cancel.
So you are paying $8 in advance for the coming month.
If you cancel during a pre-paid month you will still have access.
This is because you have paid for the remainder of the month.
There are no refunds for parts of a month unused.
Billing will then stop at the end of that pre-paid month.
You will no longer have access to view documentaries.
To cancel your subscription at any time do the following.
Sign In to your account in the top right hand corner of docplay.com
Do this by entering your email address and password.
Click on My Account > Preferences > Subscription
Scroll down and click on Cancel Subscription
In the pop-up click on Switch to Free Plan
You have now cancelled your subscription.
Billing will cease.
