Sex, Violence, and Cussing Be Gone

Just what every home needs—an explicit filter on Hollywood. VidAngel takes the garbage out for you—all the bad language and graphic scenes—leaving you with a family-friendly film.

As VidAngel CEO explains, “We created this company because—as parents and consumers—we understand deeply the surging demand for filtering content to suit the needs of families.”

VidAngel has a library of over 2,500 TV and movie titles available—for multiple devices like smartphones, computers, and AppleTV.

The service even allows users to pick their filter strength. The best part is the cost: users purchase the video online for $20.00 and can sell it back for a credit of $19.00 if viewed within 24 hours. That’s $1.00 for filtered entertainment.

For families concerned with violence, sex, and foul language, this service alleviates the bad and leaves the good. VidAngel advises consumers if excessive filtering will remove large portions of the movie.

What’s not to like? Well, Hollywood doesn’t like it. But under the 2005 Family Movie Act, third parties can provide the filtering that Hollywood currently does not. Disney and Warner Bros. among others consider VidAngel’s actions to be an “unauthorized” use of film streaming. But so far, it hasn’t slowed VidAngel down, and for consumers, it’s cheap, clean entertainment. A real deal.
