Streaming is Now Only 1 BLEEPING Dollar for all SD Movies*

money

You may have noticed things have been changing around here. Everything is prettier and wittier.

 

The best change of all is that EVERY SD movie on our site is now only $1 with sellback. No tax. No fees. No extra pennies. ONE DOLLAR! In fact, we are so tired of pennies that we are rounding your credit up to the nearest dollar. Β For the cherry on top, our new “Auto-sellback” feature means you don’t even have to remember to sell it back. What kind of wizardry is this? We don’t have magical powers – we just like you. That’s why it’s now $1 for all SD movies.

To make life simpler, we have changed all movies to the same price: $20. HD, SD, new release, the 1930s Wizard of Oz… there is no discrimination. All movies and TV shows** are now $20. This means no more confusing prices when you are picking your Friday night flick.

 

Here’s a summary of our recent shenanigans:

 

All SD Movies are now $1 with sellback.

All movies and tv shows, both HD and SD, are now $20 to keep for good.

We created a new, prettier website and logo.

 

* SD Movies can now be sold back for $1 less than purchase price, meaning you only pay $1 for up to 24 hours of unlimited viewing of that particular film.

 

** You may be thinking, why do TV shows cost just as much as movies? That is a great question! We just want to make your experience as simple as possible by standardizing the prices across all shows. The TV shows will still only be $1-$2 with sell-back. In the future, we will be creating a way to buy whole seasons of TV shows if you want to keep the episodes. So hold tight if that’s what you’re looking for.

  1. Love what you guys are doing! Quick question–in the past I purchased some movies through Google Play to use via Vidangel. Is it still possible to play movies I have previously purchased or is rental/sellback the only option now?

    Thanks!

  2. Why would you change it to $20 an episode!? That money is not credited back to our credit card. It’s credited back to your website so that we have to keep renting your movies if we want to ever get our money back. It’s a sham and I am very disappointed. I love what you guys do but if you expect to keep customers, you should stop trying to trick them.

      1. They keep saying again and again, anytime you want your money back, just tell them and they will give it back. Have you even tried? If you did and they are not refunding your money, then that is sham.

    2. We apologize for any misunderstanding.   We are not trying to be deceiving in any way.   We are happy to refund your card for any remaining credit in your account, at any time. We say so right in the video on our homepage, as well as in our terms and conditions.   We have a very thorough write up of how our system works on numerous pages on our website.   We are trying to be as clear as possible because we know the whole buying and selling thing can be a little confusing.   We want our service to be 100% legal, and to do so; you must own your movie while filtering it.   Hence, the Buy with Sell-Back process.  

      If you would like to read more about the details of our Sell-Back process, we have a great explanation here:    http://help.vidangel.com/knowledge_base/topics/how-does-vidangel-sell-back-work

    3. This comment is just silly, completely ignorant, you have only yourself to blame for your confusion since the info is clearly stated in several places on the website

    1. Dear Jennifer,

      Thanks for your interest in VidAngel.  Unfortunately, we don't have access to your Amazon movies, so our filters will not work with them.  SD Movies through VidAngel are only $1 though, so it would be easy to watch with us instead.

  3. Can I ever use my credits to bring my account to a $0 balance without purchasing a movie to keep?

    Seems I am constantly buying movies for $20 and selling back, leaving my account with a endless $19 credit that I can never spend. Make sense?

    2. Here is an explanation that will hopefully help you understand a little better. You are welcome to cash out your credits at any time.

      For us to legally offer filtered movies, you must 
      own the movie while filtering it.  To make this as affordable and user-friendly as possible, we have created an instant “Sell-Back” option to buy the movie back from you and put the credit into your VidAngel account.  No hassle, no fuss, just enjoy your movie, sell it back, and only pay $1.00 for your SD movie.   

      Quick Overview: (using a $20 movie)

      1. BUY THE MOVIE – Pay the retail price of $20. (initial credit card payment)
      2. WATCH FOR $1.00 – $1.00 (per day for SD movies) is deducted from the $20 credit.  ($2.00 HD).
      3. SELL THE MOVIE – When finished, “Sell it Back” for $19.00 of instant credit to your VidAngel account for your next purchase.  

      When you're ready for the next movie, the $19 credit already in your VidAngel account will automatically be applied to your purchase.  Your card will be charged $1 to bring your account up to the $20 purchase price.  You will then continue to buy and sell movies with account credit and pay only $1.00 per night for SD movies.  With every $1 per night, you get back $19 in credit and the process repeats with each new movie.

      1. I understand the sell-back option, but it seems once you’ve “committed” to VidAngel, you will always end up with $19 credit no matter how many times I use your services. How do I get that $19 back in the end if I’m done using VidAngel? I understand if I buy a movie and do NOT use the sell-back feature my balance would be zero. But is there another way to get that money back?

  4. I actually wanted to start buying my movies here and just keep everything all in one place, but a lot of the movies offered I could probably get lower. Is there going to be any more structuring in the future to balance that out? Like older movies being a lower price? I’m happy to basically use this as a rental service, but it would be nice to use it for more than that.

  5. Wow, I appreciate the service you are providing to the public. Thank you so very much! It is refreshing to watch a movie without all the profanity, crude jokes etc. I am referring you to everyone I know.

  6. Love the service but I have an Amazon fire and I’m tired of using my computer to watch, any word on the Amazon fire app? Willing beta tester here!

  7. Two things

    1. The process for getting the refund back to my credit card is not clear in the steps ( even in the posts and in the help section all it says is you can get the entire credit back- but doesnt exactly say how). Rest of the steps are pretty detailed. there is also no button to request the refund.

    2. the whole thing that once you buy and resell the remainder of the credit is used for your next purchase sellback doesnt seem to work with apple tv app … i have like 36 dollars of credit… and the app didnt factor in my existing credit at all while making the next purchase

  8. take the 1st one back… i just went through the long version and it seems the steps are detailed out… just not simple… the second thing still remains

  9. I’m confused about the sell back time period. A lot of the explanations mention specifically selling back within 24 hours to get the $18/$19. Does the sellback price reduce after 24 hours? If so how much?

  10. Love the concept. $1 per movie is great! I really hope you come up with something different for the TV shows soon. I’d love to go through House of Cards, but not for $39! We stopped watching it on Netflix because of the vulgarity and nudity. I love what you do, but for binge watching TV shows, the price is just too steep. Is a subscription service in future? I’d drop Netflix and sign up in a heartbeat! Thanks.

      1. I can’t wait! I just finished watching all 4 season of Game of Thrones using your rental model. I would have bought them (and I still will!) if the season cost wasn’t so prohibitive. In the meantime, I’ll probably hold off watching any other TV shows.

        Such a fantastic service you provide. My only other request is PS4 support as soon as possible.

        Keep up the great work.

  11. I was really excited to find your service. I have been looking for a way to watch Game of Thrones edited for quite some time. I was really disappointed to learn of your pricing model for TV shows. There are 4 seasons you currently offer. Each season has 10 episodes. At your current pricing that is $20 per season. That’s $80 to watch your current library and that’s at the not keep the video pricing. I can’t justify spending that amount of money for essentially “renting” a TV show I’ve been wanting to see. I’ve noticed you’ve said that you are working on a better option for the TV shows but do you know what kind of time frame we are looking at? And can you give us any sort of idea as to what approach on a pricing model your headed toward? Thanks for your hard work and feed back.

  12. Excited what you are planning for TV Shows. There are some that look interesting (Netflix, etc.) but they need filtering and a way to view them at reasonable cost.

    Truth is that a whole series does need to cost more than a movie. If it was something like $2 for 4 HD episodes (estimating 45 minutes per episode) seems reasonable. To be fair, some of these shows are high production values and are at the quality level of movies. Those old days of slap dash TV shows from the 70s, 80s and 90s are long gone (hoorah) except for those crazy ‘reality shows’.

  13. P.S. Your advertisements I’ve been seeing on youtube are the best. I am one of those people that eagerly wait to click the skip button but I actually watch yours every time! Whoever came up with that ad needs a raise. You can use the dollar I’ll be spending tonight to go towards it! πŸ˜‰

  14. Loving the service as we are trying it for the first time. I’m wondering about the “auto sellback”. Does it sell back right when you finish watching the movie or after 24 hours?

  15. My ROKU does not give Vid-Angel as an optional program – I have a 3.1 version of ROKU – do I need newer? Or what do I need to do?

  16. You have to refresh the page, then in the upper right corner is a magnifying glass. Type in the title. I finally found it myself.

  17. Hi! Love love love your site! I tell people about it all the time! Quick question, I fly sometimes, and I like to “rent” and download a movie for my flight on my phone/tablet to be able to watch it without wifi. Is it possible to do this with vidangel phone app?

      1. How do you do this on Android? We are going off the grid for two weeks and I would LOVE to take these movies with us! Thanks!

        1. We don’t yet have an offline feature for Android. Sorry about that. We plan to build one in the future.

  18. Any progress on when you can purchase seasons of shows? I would love to own all of the Games of Thrones Seasons but there doesn’t seem to be an option other than pay a ton of money at this point. Thanks!

  19. under your current model, if I were to purchase 5 seasons of the walking dead from netflix it would cost me 8$, and from you almost 70$. I love your service but that is a serious WTF(iltered) situation.

    looking forward to at least an update on the “shows” situation. thanks.

    1. The reason Vidangel can filter these movies is because they purchase the actual episodes, movies. For example, Vidangel owns 500 copies of The Matrix and therefore can only rent out 500 filtered versions at a time. That’s why sometimes you will see a HD version of a movie as unavailable.

      1. Yes, we have a disc in the vault for every owner on our system. If we don’t own one, we can’t sell one and that’s why you will see out of stock notices at times.

  20. Soooo, who are the poor saps who have to watch unfiltered movies in order to save the rest of us from having to see stuff we don’t like? My hat is off to them, sir. Thank them for me for taking a hit for the team. (hopefully, they don’t mind)

    Please make a big announcement when tv gets cheaper. I don’t know why that seems so expensive, even if you do 2 eposides for the price of one so they are the length of a movie, it still feels high. I recognize the time and effort is the same for you guys. However, when they are full seasons for a price, I’m in!

    1. Everyone who tags agrees to tag stuff they already watch so no one “takes one for the team.” But we’re grateful for the tagging community…it’s tedious work and works really well because of their efforts.

  21. How can I request tv shows? I see the movie request, but can’t figure out how to request shows. I’d like to reqest House of Cards season 4, Bloodline and Suits. Thanks.

    1. Hi Laura, we’re working on that. I’ve added your requests to our list. For now you can request shows on our facebook, twitter, or really anywhere you can contact us. πŸ™‚
