One of our most frequently asked questions: Has anyone tried this? Does VidAngel actually work?
Yes, over a million people have used VidAngel.
And yes, we actually work.
How does VidAngel work?
VidAngel allows you to select what offensive language to mute and what inappropriate scenes to skip. With a click of a button, you can take out nudity, sex scenes, f-bombs, blasphemy, violence, and gore before you even press play. You can make an R-rated movie PG or take out one scene that would make you uncomfortable.
“Before VidAngel, I was the filter. I would watch any questionable movie or tv show (ALL seasons) and write down where the “bad” stuff was so we could then all watch it together. THIS is SO much easier … and very appreciated!!” – Karen
How do I know what scenes to take out before even watching the show?
For example, the category “sex/nudity/immodesty” is broken down into subsections: Sexually Suggestive, Nudity w/ Sex, Nudity w/o Sex, Sexual Assault, etc. Within each section, there is a vague description to know what kind of scene it is without spoiling the movie.
“As someone with PTSD and panic disorder, thank you for removing triggering content from movies. Just because I have past childhood trauma doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be able to enjoy media like everyone else.” – Shannen
Why do people use VidAngel?
Our customers use our services for a variety of reasons. There are quite a few shows that have a thought-provoking plot with great messages. What so many of our customers are finding, even the most uplifting show can still contain profanity, blasphemy, and nudity. TV series and movies critics deemed “family-friendly” have language that was nowhere to be seen during evening TV shows in the 80s. People no longer have to play the guessing game with VidAngel. Instead of fast-forwarding through parts you don’t want to see or getting blindsided by someone’s creative expression, people can relax and enjoy movie night.
“When I was a kid, we would watch movies that were broadcast on regular tv, and they had to filter them. I watched some of these movies unfiltered as an adult and was shocked at the content allowed in family movies, even from the 80s. Movie studios won’t allow edited versions to be sold. So filtering services are the only option if you want to watch a war movie without any language or unnecessary nudity. I don’t have broadcast tv anymore because of what they allow nowadays. We shouldn’t have to be restricted to G movies or cartoons if we don’t want language or sexual content in our entertainment.” – Chrystal
“Best $10 I have EVER spent!!! I can watch movies with my family now without worrying about what they might see. You can turn on as many or as few filters as you want for each show you watch. It’s genius as long as they keep the price affordable like it is, I will not ever cancel this membership.” – Vanessa
