UP Faith and Family is a leader in faith-based, family friendly content. If you’re concerned about the type of content your family may be exposed to on streaming services, UP Faith and Family might be a good alternative or addition to your cord cutting collection. While Hulu and Netflix have sections dedicated to kid-friendly content, UP Faith and Family offers only family-friendly shows and movies, so you can let your kids search and browse with peace of mind.
UP Faith and Family is a streaming service dedicated to providing family and faith focused content to cord cutters. On the website, streaming app, and Amazon add-on channel, you’ll find a range of well known, lesser known, and exclusive content.
The family-friendly service was created by the cable channel UP, which also provides content that they describe as uplifting, positive, and authentic. You’ll find scripted series, reality shows, and movies, all with a positive storyline and usually with a faith-based message. While some of the shows and movies on the channel are overtly religious, most just focus on morals and making a positive impact on the world.
Before content is added to the streaming service, it goes through an internal review process. The network has strict guidelines for shows and movies, screening content for language, sexual situations, and violence, among other factors.
