    I think it's just a reference to the Second Coming.

    I think they have cut a deal with one of the major studios.

    If so, that's great news. I'd be willing to pay $5-6 to rent an edited movie. MJ hates R rate movies, well some of them (she loves Saving Private Ryan, The Pianist, and will watch the unedited Band of Brothers), but it would be fun to watch more of them with her. We did watch The Revenant on VidAngel and I think we rarely understood anything the Tom Hardy character said as he was constantly silenced because of profanity. We left in the gory violence though

    Mormons have a weird obsession with profanity.

    So it looks like they've gone to a subscription based model that filters Netflix and Amazon offerings. 7.99 a month. No agreement with either service to filter their content. Looks like they are doubling down rather than finding a workable solution.

    Seems a bit different since at least this time don't you have to have your own Netflix or Amazon subscription and then they layer the filtering on top? Seems quite a bit different than the old way when they'd rip a DVD and "sell" you a digital copy to stream.

    Yep, totally different. But they are still filtering content without a license to that content.

    If you read the comments on their facebook page, people are pissed that they can't just "rent" a brand new movie for $1. Shocked I tell you.

    VidAngel is back with a new business plan. $8 per month subscription (cancel anytime) gets you filtering of your existing streaming services (including Netflix, Amazon, HBO; says that Vudu is coming soon). Looks like it also consolidates each of those services into one location.

    Funny. I remembered seeing something here about a new setup but for some reason this seemed like another revamp.

    "Hey, let's go buy some DVDs and blu-rays, rip them and put the content on our servers and sell access to each 'copy' for $1"

    "Are we doing this through the dark web or something? Sounds a little sketchy."

    "No, we're totally kosher with copyright law, so we'll market it to Mormons. What could go wrong?"
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Haha. Yeah, that whole business model was an incredibly stupid idea from day one.

    I actually like their new business model to censor streaming media. We pay the monthly fee and use it mostly when watching stuff with our kids so we can take out swears. It also makes watching more riske stuff easier since MJ préfère to not watch R rated content.

    But yes, they were incredibly dumb and them claiming ignorance is funny.
