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.
