Families stuck at home during the pandemic have plenty of free kid-friendly options thanks to the generosity of several companies, including Focus on the Family.
Focus on the Family launched its own streaming platform, Focus@Home, in early April. It includes the animated series Adventures in Odyssey and McGee and Me, and video series and feature films such as Last Chance Detectives and Mully. It is free. Visit FocusOntheFamily.com/streaming.
Minno, a Christian streaming platform for children, is offering free “Church at Home” resources for parents. This includes kid-friendly videos, Bible lessons, activities and a sampling of Minno’s platform. Visit GoMinno.com and click on “Church at Home” on the top-right.
The Christian History Institute and Vision Video launched RedeemTV -- a treasure trove for fans of documentaries and historical drama. It includes the Torchlighters series, The Pilgrim’s Progress animated film, the Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace live-action film, and many other titles. It is free. Visit RedeemTV.com.
Finally, VidAngel—the most popular streaming option of these four—is free through the end of April. The service allows parents to skip objectionable content in Netflix and Amazon Prime titles. (A subscription to one of those is needed.) Filtering can be customized. VidAngel also has original content, including The Chosen, a series about the life of Christ. Visit VidAngel.com.
