Aquinas and More. Good Faith. Guaranteed.

Finally! A family alternative to Netflix

by Ian on August 22, 2012

A few years ago we were introduced to Faith and Family Flix - a DVD rental service that only carried movies that were family-friendly. As Catholics we need to be vigilant about what we allow into our homes and services such as Netflix allow plenty of bad in with the good.

Because we believe that it is important to offer wholesome alternatives to the more popular services that are available we have teamed up with Faith and Family Flix to introduce the service to a larger audience.

The service is great because:

  • You can get up to six DVDs at a time.
  • There are no late fees.
  • Free postage to and from your home.
  • The movie options that are available range from classics such as Treasure Island to recent releases like War Horse.
  • You don't have to worry about the content of the films because the service only rents wholesome films and tv shows.
  • Cancel anytime. There aren't any contracts so you aren't tied in to the service if you decide it isn't for you.

So check out Faith and Family Flix and help bring wholesome media to your home from a company that is run by Catholics who care about your family.

I don’t understand… the selection is terrible, and excludes many films that are appropriate for children. There is no Sci-Fi genre… tell me why do I need to pay more money to have limited options? why not pay less and order the same films, and more, from netflix?

Are there specific films that you are looking for? They add new content every month.

I always try to support businesses that don’t sell morally objectionable products.

Well, the problem is that “morally objectionable” isn’t the same for everybody. One person might see “Gone Baby Gone” and only see the violence, swearing, and repulsive characters. I see “Gone Baby Gone” and I see a story about tough moral decision making: what do you do when the right choice is the hardest choice? when the right choice goes against the tide? that movie had me on the edge of my seat until the very end, but not because i was worried about the physical safety of the characters, but because I was worried about their moral safety, so to speak.
That’s just one example of a great movie that would never make it to FFF’s list. It includes morally objectionable content, and indeed isn’t for everybody, but is excellent nonetheless, and I’m glad that netflix has it.

Not every “good” movie will be carried by FFF. I personally like Gran Torino but they won’t carry that either.

as far as specific content: star wars? darby o’gill and the little people? nowhere to be found. I guess they’re not wholesome enough?

Like I said, they are adding movies regularly and are always open to suggestions for more.
