Netflix Update

A letter from our CEO, Bill Aho

Dear VidAngel Members,

You may have heard that Netflix is launching an ad-supported subscription plan. This follows Amazon’s recent launch of Freevee, which offers ad-supported content at no cost. The good news is that we have been hard at work integrating Freevee, which should be available in the coming weeks! Similarly, when Netflix introduces its ad-supported plans tomorrow, November 3rd, we will begin working on that, although it’s not clear how long it may take. To continue filtering Netflix content with VidAngel, keep your current Netflix subscription until you hear from us. 

Customers have asked if we will offer filters for the ads. No, we will not. We respect the business models of streaming services, and ads are part of that business model. Our customers will see the same ads with VidAngel that they would have seen without it, and you will not be able to filter the content of the ads the same way you can filter the content of a show.

We are working hard to make VidAngel great for you and your family. Technology challenges in our industry can be complex. It pains us when we have glitches, even when they are not our fault. We work day and night so you can enjoy our service 24/7, and we pay attention to every request, complaint, and suggestion from our members. Your feedback helps us plan our road map for new features and product improvements. Thank you for taking the time to share.

We appreciate and are grateful to all of you.

 

Sincerely,

Bill Aho

CEO, VidAngel

  1. I need a VidAngel representative to call me as I’m having trouble. I am 74 years old and live alone and I’m not sure how to get VidAngel on my TV even though I have everything I need. I’ve been paying for it for a couple of years in hopes that I can find out how to work it.

  2. Please get your services on apps like Tubi, Pluto, Vudu, and as many other streaming services as possible. I am mind boggled the fact that DISNEY sued you for allowing us to filter content. I stopped services when I could not filter everything any more. I no longer feel like my family can live without your services and plan to stop streaming ANY service who disallows Vidangel. Spend some money marketing this story. Get LOVE and HATE from both sides. Would be amazing if you could filter everything for everyone once again. Our children desperately need this. HINT HINT.

    1. Thank you James for the support! We are working around the clock to make more platforms and channels available in the future!
