VidAngel launched to help families enjoy shows through eliminating questionable content. The technology allows customers to choose what they want to see or hear when watching streamed television. VidAngel's slogan is, "Watch however the bleep you want". The company was involved in a legal battle in 2016, but became reactive to change their focus on providing filtering services for streaming television instead of movies.
VidAngel provides customers a wide variety of options to filter their streamed shows. Customers can filter violence, language, gore, sexual themes, etc. This gives customers the option to tailor shows to the audience they are watching with. Parents can now watch with their children without worrying about questionable content.
Customers can use Vidangel's services through several different devices. VidAngel does not favor specific platforms and supports Apple and Google devices. Customers can stream content on a web browser, the VidAngel App, Android devices, Chromecast, Apple Devices, Apple TV, Roku, Smart TVs, Amazon FireTV, etc.
The company allows new users to try their service for one free month before charging them $7.99 a month.
VidAngel allows their users to cancel their service at any time. This provides users with freedom from a constricting contract and gives users the option to leave for any reason at any time.
VidAngel doesn't have the best public image due to their lengthy legal battle. VidAngel shut down and ceased operations in Dec. 2016 and was reactivated in June 2017 with a new focus on streaming television. This shut down led to a lower reputation quality in the public eye. Since the reactivation, VidAngel has been working to revamp their customer loyalty base and build user trust.
VidAngel offers a tiny library of content included with your subscription. However, if you'd like to filter a movie or show not already on VidAngel, you must connect another streaming service such as Netflix, HBO, or Amazon Prime.
VidAngel has allowed me to watch moves with my family that otherwise I wouldn’t be able to watch! A really great thing to have for the family!
Been with VidAngel since they opened their doors (2014). Has been a superb experience for us. Having so much ability to control the filtering is empowering. We have watched movies we otherwise would not have, if there were no way to filter them. Disney needs to pull their head out of their , come down off their high horse, and recognize that it's us people who pay their salaries. If there were no us, there would be no Disney. It doesn't bother me that I can't filter Disney content at this time. I just don't watch their movies anymore. Nor do I give them any of my money in any of their other subsidiaries and products. Anyway, back to VidAngel... it has become such an integral part of our video watching lives. I will be with them until they die or I die, whichever happens first. Hopefully their service outlives me. Awesome product. Great creative minds. Keep up the great work VidAngel.
I love vid angel. If there is something in the movie I don’t like I can go back and change it so irony have to see it. I love vid angel.
VidAngel is very good for being able to show your kids movies that they want to watch that may not be age appropriate. This app is so good for taking things out of movies that your kids shouldn't be seeing.
I love being able to filter out what I do not like to see or hear in my own home. I am more comfortable with my kids watching shows with this service.
I love the product and wish they could move back to the rental model. I am able to us this on netflix and amazon which is awesome but I don't have all the movies on there.
I love vid angle.First one thing i like is how the movies is tooken all not so good parts out.
Had VidAngel for a while back when you could watch edited movies outside of Amazon/Netflix. Loved the service and wish it still existed in the same format.
I love VidAngel because they have alot of your favorite movies. And even if you have a favorite movie that has bad words. Or has things that you don't like you can select them before watching the movie and it will take all of those things out so you can watch it and have it be good for you.
Vidangel is amazing! I'm able to watch movies and tv shows while maintaining my personal values. Vidangel allows you to filter out unwanted parts of the film, such as language, gore, and drug use. I feel much more comfortable using Vidangel because I know that I won't see anything that could infringe on my personal values.
Using VidAngel is awesome because it makes it so that you can watch shows/movies that you wouldn't have wanted to watch before because it adds a "clean filter".
Fantastic app!! My kids can watch all the movies their friends are watching, minus the filth.
I love VidAngel. It is such a great way to be able to watch all the movies you want, especially if you don't enjoy crude things in the movies. One thing I don't enjoy is how you need to stream the movies.
BEST filtering service! Cuts anything you want out - almost seamlessly! I would pay $20 a month - but am glad to pay $9.99
This is the very best of the bunch, LOVE this service! I don't like certain aspects of many shows and films, and VidAngel lets me enjoy the story without the gunk.
Great service for those of us who want to control the content that we see. Wish there were more services like this one.
I love that vidangel gives you the opportunity to have agency and take control over what kinds of movies you want to watcha and how you want to watch them. There are so many movies that are excellent, but unfortunately, just have a few things that make them not very desirable to watch. Vidangel lets you be able to edit those out.
Vid angel is awesome. I like to take out some of the things I would avoid if available to me. They do a great job of letting me personalize what gets taken out.
This is the best thing that has come to the movie business! I love I can change what setting are on movies so I can watch something I feel good about!
As a Mormon, this service is so convenient so that I am able to watch all of the movies I want to with all of my friends as well!
VidAngel is great. I wish the industry would accept it more and let them do their thing. There are so many movies and shows that we want to watch but don't because of the content and VidAngel will let us. I love finding shows that we didn't think we would watch but now can.
Being able to have clean entertainment content is most important for me and my family. What an amazing service this company provides for me to be able to assure good family values.
I really like that you can choose the level of foul language and/or sexual references, etc. You can be very specific about what to include or leave out.
Vid Angel is a great great great tool! You can connect Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and watch all your favorite tv shows and movies the way you want. Sometimes there's just certain things you want to block and Vid Angel makes it happen!
vidAngel does not protect those who watch from the content. It is easy to imagine what they are saying and what is happening.
We've tried to use VidAngel several times, but every time we set it up, the system would fail on us. I'm not sure what happened, but we were hoping for a good experience and ended up not getting an experience at all.
I loved VidAngel for the time i actually had it. I loved being able to make movies and shows cleaner for a super cheap price.
It keeps up with the most recent videos and is very on top of it to find anything in the movie to edit out for your children underage. It is a great way to watch movies without all the inappropriate parts that just aren't entertaining.
I love how you can change the settings to what you want the movie to edit out. It makes it personalized to everyone who uses it.
I love using VidAngel! It has plenty of content and very useful, easy to use censoring techniques for a great price!
VidAngel is a wonderful service! I love to use it when watching movies with my kids, because I can decide exactly which specific swear words and inappropriate scenes to monitor for myself and the kids. Super good and easy to use!
It's too bad what the big companies with money did to vid angel. I wish it was like it started out to be.
Not a great selection of movies to chose from but I do like the concept. The process to edit takes too long.
I really miss having VidAngel for movies! Hope they will win this battle and we can watch with our kids without trouble. This need to happen soon than later!
The concept for VidAngel was good but it didn't have a great selection of movies and shows to choose from. It also took too long to go through all of the filters to get everything set up.
I mean I wish it was still free but I understand why it’s not...but I love that I have the opportunity to watch R rated movies without the bad parts!
Vidangel is awesome! So many movies I always wanted to watch but felt uncomfortable, now I can watch! So great
Love VidAngel! It is a fantastic service that allows you to screen movies and entertainment for the whole family. Great way to watch programs that you wouldn't watch with your 10 year old in the room.
VidAngel is absolutely awesome for people who want to filter movies, although it's future is definitely questionable due to all the legal complications.
I love how vidangel is good to make things clean for kids and things, but I don't like how it skips so many scenes that don't need to be skipped necessarily!
Heaven Bless VidAngel as they step into our parenting world and make it a little easier for us. I hope this company thrives and helps the world of Hollywood realize that all we really want is good content.
My mom absolutely loves VidAngel for us kids. It has given me so many opportunities to see movies I wouldn't be allowed to watch otherwise.
VidAngel is great! You can literally watch anything you want to and it will edit all of the bad words, or naughty things about that movie and it will take it out. Makes watching tv a breeze!
We love streaming through Vidangel because of the option we have of having clean versions of movies. It is an entertainment platform that gives viewers the control to filter out language, nudity and violence. I highly recommend this to families especially with young children or grandchildren.
I am so grateful for VidAngel, it has made it so much easier to watch shows I want to watch without having to watch parts of the movie I don't want to watch. I love using when I watch movies with my family.
VidAngel is awesome for parents who really care about what they watch and want to make sure they are seeing good things. I love their services.
Works pretty well and is a great option for worried parents about what their kids are watching.
VidAngel the best streaming service out there! I love being able to edit my shows so that I do not have to have cursing in them!
I love watching shows with VidAngel. Its really nice that you can edit out the "bad" part of any show!
In love with VidAngel. I love how with this company I can edit my shows so I can still watch the popular shows/movies with out all the bad content
