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.

The Good

  • Personalized Filtering Options
  • Available On Multiple Devices
  • Free Trial
  • No Contract

Unique Filtering/Parental Controls

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.

Compatible with Several Streaming Devices

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.

Free Trial

The company allows new users to try their service for one free month before charging them $7.99 a month.

No Contract

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.

The Bad

  • Reputation
  • Limited Streaming Library

Reputation

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.

Limited Streaming Library

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. 

The Bottom Line

For those who want to enjoy content without all of the swearing and other questionable material, VidAngel is an excellent service to utilize. VidAngel provides an easy way for families or children to filter out harsh language, violence, sexual themes, etc.  And customers are able to watch VidAngel through a wide variety of streaming devices at an affordable price.

I use it with my husband every day! We love not having to worry about explicit content, a small price to pay for all of the movies we can now feel good watching together. I am appalled at Disney. Maybe if they hadn’t sued vidangel for upwards of 60 million there wouldn’t be any glitches to worry about. But they are quick to fix them as they come and quick to respond with any concerns over email.

We have been customers of VidAngel for the past few years. As a parent I appreciate that I get to decide what is in the shows/movies that my kids can watch. For myself, I have actually been able to watch shows that I had wanted to watch but weren't exactly what I felt comfortable watching. I have LOVED vidAngel

Vidangel is awesome. You can choose the filters to apply to your shows, making it however appropriate you want. They just mute when there’s swearing if you have that setting on. It connects well if you have fast internet.

Lame product. Watch the movie as intended or don’t bother. People should not be so prude and watch a movie if they want to watch a movie. Swear words aren’t hurting anybody. If you don’t like nudity, don’t watch those movies. Violence, same.

Am I the only one going through this????? I am having a hard time stopping the charge on my account in the amount of $9.99 I canceled my subscription in November of 2019 and here in January 2020 I am still being charged. I’ve tried reaching out to a Vidangel representative but have had no luck. If you don’t have a lot of money to just give away DON’T SIGN UP I’m $30 in the hole for something I no longer want.

We love vidangel. We have enjoyed many movies by cutting our one scene or offensive curse words. The levels of censoring are SO specific. They describe each potentially offensive scene and you can chose which to eliminate for yourself. The only time I don’t enjoy it, is when there are so many curse words in a movie that it pieces up the movie and takes away the cohesion of the film. But if that is the case, it’s probably not that great of a film anyways. I would recommend it you are a big movie watcher but don’t appreciate unnecessary sex scenes, language, or violence. We enjoying using it through our roku.

My family watched the entirety of Game of Thrones on VidAngel! Family as in: two slightly squeamish parents, two boys a little too young for the content, and those of us who really wanted to share it with everyone! :) It has a great filter system, literally telling you everything you need to know in each movie or episode that you might want to filter out. They're even great about keeping spoilers vague. Well worth the price!

This is a very cool streaming service that allows you to filter content like language, sexual material, gore, etc. out of films, to make otherwise unavailable movies family friendly. My family has used VidAngel several times to watch rated R movies at a level closer to PG-13. It does occasionally create weird breaks in the movie where the content you filtered out would otherwise be, but it's a good service for what it offers.

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.
