VidAngel is an American video streaming platform that is a bit unique. It gives the users a chance to skip parts of the video that are not suitable for them. The real idea behind VidAngel is selling movies to users who sell them back to VidAngel after removing objectionable parts. However, in 2016 Disney, 20th Century Fox, Lucas film, and Warner bros sued VidAngel for this streaming of altered content. So, now it streams movies and shows from Netflix, HBO, and Amazon Prime with the filtering specialty. Now, let’s discuss in detail access to VidAngel on Roku.

VidAngel is a family-friendly streaming platform as it lets users filter off parts. We know that most of the shows and movies released on online platforms do not always fit children. So by using these filters, you can decide what to watch. But, the company had to go through years of lawsuits because of this filtering feature. However, after years of losing battle, VidAngel is back with a new interface. With VidAngel on Roku, enjoy these filtered contents with your family.
