Move over Netflix, Dove Channel is here
Dove Channel is a subscription service which can be viewed across a broad spectrum of connected devices including Roku® Players and Roku TV™ models, Android and Mac iOS, the web, and mobile and tablet devices offering a vast library of trusted and safe handpicked family-friendly, faith-based and kids’ programming, with the assurance of safety and quality control at the viewer’s fingertips. The channel is a partnership The Dove Foundation™ and Cinedigm Corp.
In reviewing the service, I liked that all of the content on Dove Channel is sortable and searchable using the Dove rating system that ranks programs by six key criteria, including sexuality, language, violence, drug and alcohol use, nudity and other, to ensure appropriate programming for families. Their one-of-a-kind programming interface is customizable based on the user’s preference.
Dove is currently offering a 7 day free trial to new subscribers to try their one-of-a-kind search tool and access to 100% of their content ad free. At a price that won’t break anyone’s budget, ongoing service is $4.99 per month for their family-safe programming (Trending Christian is not an affiliate or directly affiliated with Dove Channel.)
One of the most trusted names in faith and family content, The Dove Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging the entertainment industry to create, produce and distribute more movies and television shows that are appropriate for family viewing. Already popular with hundreds of thousands of people each month who rely on The Dove Foundation™ for up-to-date reviews of movies, TV shows, DVDs and books, the new Dove Channel is a natural extension of their ministry.
“For a long time we’ve known the missing link in online family entertainment has been the safety issue, and Dove Channel offers a wide array of family and faith-friendly viewing choices for kids, parents, grandparents and everyone in between,” said Dick Rolfe, co-founder and CEO of The Dove Foundation.
The channel features newly acquired and original programming, as well as offerings from the vast collection of family and faith-friendly content from the Cinedigm library, offering safe, entertaining and educational programming that tells stories that reflect the best in humanity with access to some of life’s best lessons on screen.
The first exclusive offering on Dove Channel is the first season of “Austentatious,”a totally modern take on the beloved works of Jane Austen with themes of family, friendship, love and career explored in ten episodes.
Dove Channel features more than 900 hours of new and original content, as well as favorite classics where leading stars such as Liam Neeson, Judd Nelson, Kevin Sorbo, Jon Voight, Halle Berry, Harry Connick Jr, Kirk Cameron, Betty White, Tim Curry and Michael Landon all come together in one place.
All genres of movie and television programming are included, from comedy, sci-fi, drama, mystery and action to musicals, documentary, foreign films, biblical stories and health/wellness specials. Family classics ready to view include “Highway To Heaven,” “Swiss Family Robinson,” “The Adventures of Black Beauty” and the much-loved “Where The Red Fern Grows.” Kids’ content includes popular episodes of “VeggieTales” and the timeless tale of “The Velveteen Rabbit.” For audiences seeking redemptive stories, there are strong faith-based titles that ensure Dove Channel can be a one-stop shop for your entertainment needs.
