VidAngel Re-Emerges with Netflix and Amazon Filtering Service Despite Opposition from Disney, Warner Bros

Leah Marieann Klett : Jun 15, 2017 : Gospel Herald

VidAngel does not believe in censorship—they simply want to make the films that come out of Hollywood suitable for families. Through VidAngel, veterans with PTSD have the option to skip violent scenes, the faith-based community is able to filter scenes in a film that use the Lord's name in vain, and parents are able to filter sexual and adult content.

The "New VidAngel" allows viewers to watch filtered content from Netflix, Amazon and HBO by signing into their streaming service account and using VidAngel to remove language, nudity and violence from movies and television shows. 
 
After months of battling Disney and other Hollywood companies, independent streaming app VidAngel is back—this time with a brand-new service allowing viewers to watch filtered Netflix, Amazon and HBO content.

On Tuesday evening, Neal Harmon, CEO of the Utah-based company, made the big announcement before a Facebook Live audience of 50,000 and a room full of fans: "We have some really, really, really good news," he said. "VidAngel is back!"
 
The "New VidAngel" allows viewers to watch filtered content from Netflix, Amazon and HBO by signing into their streaming service account and using VidAngel to remove language, nudity and violence from movies and television shows.
 
The new service comes in response to the ongoing lawsuit filed against the company by four major Hollywood studios claiming VidAngel violated copyright laws.
 
"I can't say exactly what Hollywood wants, all I can see is their actions," Neal Harmon told the Gospel Herald after making the announcement. "In the case of VidAngel, it's the family who decides what to filter. Fundamentally, this is an issue of control and who has control. As a father, I feel like it just makes common sense that we should have control."
 
He added, "We're okay with directors filming movies and presenting them how they want. But, when it comes into our home, then we should have the choice on how we watch that content. They shouldn't have anything to do with what happens in our home as long as we are paying for it. That's essentially what VidAngel is fighting for—liberty for all."
