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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice being able to watch shows edited with my family. However, the picture was also blurry or choppy, the sounds wasn’t the greatest, when it was edited you could either see the actual swear word from the mouth. Not hear it but see what they said, and or there would be whole scenes missing from the movie because it would edit so much out.

I love the vid angel service. It was nice being able to watch movies with my family that are clean. However we had the swearing censored and there were multiple times with my family that it would swear and You may not hear the swear word but you definitely can see the actor mouthing it and still know why they say. Also sometimes the picture wasn’t great and the quality was bad.

I like the concept of VidAngel, but I don't feel like this company executes it very well. The movies are choppy and unpredictable and sometimes the quality isn't great. I also don't like how it has recently changed so that you have to pay a monthly fee for it instead of paying for individual movies. This company has the right idea, but it definitely needs some improvement.
