If you're tired of Netflix, Disney, Hallmark, and PBS pushing their agendas on your family, here are 3 family-friendly streaming services that offer clean, godly entertainment. #alittlerandr #netflix #hallmark #disney #streaming #tv #movies

Are you frustrated, like me, at the amount of filth in entertainment today?

Put aside the debate for a moment about whether or not Christians should watch PG-13 and R-rated movies. Online streaming apps are putting out far worse content.

Netflix is offering a new Christmas special in which Jesus is gay and Mary smokes weed. And this is just one Netflix special in a long line of movies and specials that are not only family unfriendly, but are very decidedly blasphemous, predatory in content, and outright pornographic.

No more Netflix

Two years ago, Disney featured a lesbian character on Doc McStuffins and is creating LGBTQ story lines in it’s films, and PBS portrayed a gay wedding in it’s popular cartoon Arthur.

Say not to Disney + and PBS Kids.

Yesterday, Hallmark published an article in which they state their “agonizing” over their decision to pull an ad in which a lesbian couple were depicted.

In the end, they concluded it was the wrong decision. In the article they affirm their “inclusive” stand with the LGBTQ community and their commintment to work with GLAAD to better represent the LGBTQ community.

This is very sad, because a significant portion of their consumer base is conservative Christians who are now abandoning Hallmark in droves.

I am one of them.

Today I cancelled my account with Hallmark Movies Now streaming app.

Thankfully, there are a few great streaming apps committed to providing good family-friendly and Christian content. And I am sharing those with you today!

3 Family-Friendly Streaming Services

For me, it isn’t enough to use services that cancel out bad words or portray adult scenes, because I feel like speak with my dollars.

Choosing to pay money for Netflix, Disney +, and Hallmark Movies Now isn’t an option for me – even though each of these provide content that is agreeable to my movie-watching standards.

For me it is about principle: am I willing to financially support a company that is committed to putting out content that mocks Christ and glorifies the very sin that nailed Him to the cross.

Here are three streaming services you can safely watch with your family.

1. Pureflix

Pureflix is basically a Christian alternative to Netflix with 14 genres, including titles in Spanish, there is something for everyone!

Even kids!

They offer a good variety of great cartoons like Torchlighters, Superbook, and Franklin. They also offer classic films, musicals, and even a selection of fun Christmas movies that will be fun to watch this season.

You can find Pureflix here.

2. Up Faith and Family

When I began researching family-friendly streaming apps, the one I kept finding was Up Faith and Family. I took a brief look at it and immediately signed up!

I love it because it has a very “Hallmark” feel to the content, but with the commitment to provide content that even kids can watch.

I love that!

At a very reasonable $5.99 a month – with a free two-week introductory offer, I was all in on that!

Up Faith and Family offers movies and TV series for the whole family, as well as documentaries, music – such as Gaither Homecoming series, and more. 

For the $5.99 you pay, it is an amazing deal!

You can find Up Faith and Family here.

3. Minno

Formerly known as JellyTelly, Minno is a streaming app just for kids. 

And I love it!

Minno has hours and hours of content dedicated to discipling young children, offering them great theological content on their level through Buck Denver and Friends.

There is also tons of other fun content like 3-2-1 Penguines, McGee and Me, Davey and Goliath (a flash back to childhood for some of us), and other fabulous Bible-based content for kids.

4. Parables TV

Shortly after publishing this post, a reader asked if I’d heard of Parables TV. I hadn’t so I decided to check it out.

The best part about Parables TV is that it has a free option! If you don’t mind commercials, you can go with the free option and they say they’re adding titles everyday.

The selection of movies and shows are Christian based and are very family friendly.

Their selections include documentaries and comedy.

You can find Parables TV here.

Have you found a family-friendly streaming service not on this list? Comment or email me about it, because I’d love to check it out and possibly add it here!

  1. Hello I’m also a Christian but I disagree with your decision about canceling your Hallmark account In the Bible doesn’t say do not judge or you also be judged I think that you should have more understanding towards people and stop looking at one particular ad to base your misguided decision

    1. Rose you cannot support things like Hallmark when they are putting stuff out like that. I don’t believe Rosilind is judging but rather trying to be a true Christ follower with pure integrity. We don’t have people that are gay but we hate the sin and cannot support things that have anything to do with any type of sin.

    2. As a Christian Rose
      We need to not get so comfortable in the world that we become lukewarm. The Lord warns we have to pick a side. Stand for something or fall for anything. You can judge the Sin without judging the person. Yes, Sin is sin but this particular sin is overflowing. Rosilind, is taking a BRAVE and well needed stand. I wonder what kind of Christian would fight for Sin. You don’t have to agree with her but it her choice. You have no idea where the Lord is leading Rosilind. If I were you, I would take the time to seek the Lord in this situation because you seem to have picked a side. As a example, let not forget Sodom and Gomorrah.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this information and for researching alternatives for believers! While not an avid tv consumer myself, my husband is and many friends are. It is important to use our choices wisely! As we are instructed in the Word:

    “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

    Is this not applicable to what we expose our minds to as well? I will be sharing your alternatives with many. Thank you again!

  3. Thanks. We have young children 13 year old girl and 10 year old boy and it is so hard to find anything to watch. We have had pure flicks for a couple of years and will not support many other platforms and most free apps like tubi or Pluto have a lot lot of questionable content. Sadly the choices are few for us but thanks again for the help. We will try.?

  4. Hi Rosilind. Wondering if you have
    any updates to Faith & Family Values streaming options article you did in 2019? We had been using FrndlyTV but am discouraged by some of the things I’m seeing in their offerings lately. Any others to be aware of for a family w no elementary aged kids?

    1. I don’t. I don’t have access to many streaming platforms where I live – even with a VPN. I do know that UP Faith & Family is still very good and their selection isn’t bad either.
