  1. I just want to say what a great idea this is that you’re doing! Our family made a decision about 10 years ago not to watch anything that uses strong profanity or shows any nudity. We did this for our own convictions. Needless to say we have been starved for digital entertainment ever since!!! (Although I’m not complaining and am happy to continue doing such). But, now that we’ve discovered Vidangel.com we have been able to watch movies that otherwise I can confidently say we would NEVER watch without filters! You’re company is fantastic! These studios should be thanking you instead of complaining. I know dozens of families that have the same convictions we do and they were anxious to here about you. Keep it up!

  2. Vidangel is in my prayers. I sincerely hope that the lawyers/judges/juries who view this case will see that it is a lawful and morally-correct company that is making this world a better place.

  3. Yes! This is sooo awesome! Way to go everyone and thank you to those helping financially by backing VidAngel. The Truth Will See You Free! Take Care and you have a loyal customer always.
