Can I download Twig films?

No, we currently do not offer a download option due to licensing and IPR restrictions on the film content. Films always have to be streamed directly from the Twig website. If you have a slow internet connection, you can alter the bit-rate to a lower quality which requires less bandwidth.

Are there any usage restrictions?

Accounts are personal and as such cannot be shared unless you are a home user. Otherwise there are no usage restrictions.

Can I access Twig anywhere, anytime?

If you have an individual Twig account, or you use a URL link for authentication, you can access Twig anywhere, anytime. However, if your account uses school IP address for authentication, you will be restricted to certain devices within your school and you will not be able to access the website anywhere else.

Can I view Twig films when firewalls and anti-virus software are in place?

In principle, yes you can. However many schools use web filtering services to block access to certain websites (e.g. YouTube and Facebook). These web filtering services may block access to the Twig website. If this is the case, the following URLs need to be added to your allowed list of sites:
