Family Friendly Movies with gMovies! {a FlyBy review and giveaway!}

I've stated this before on my blog, but I'll say it once again:  we are always on the lookout for great family-friendly movies.


Hearing that there is a subscription service available, for only $4.99 a month, that offers nothing but family-friendly fare immediately got my attention.

As you can see from the drop-down box, there are quite a few different genres available. 

Another huge bonus for us is that we could install the app on the iPad, and we are able to either have kids watch something on just the iPad, or we can use the iPad to put it up on our TV.  And no, I don't understand how we do that, I just know that we can.

About gMovies:
gMovies offers instant access to almost 300 faith friendly feature films of every genre, in addition to animated stories, television series and biblical documentaries. Always available on your computer or mobile device, gMovies also includes the bible-based animated series “Pahappahooey Island;” teen drama “Much Ado About Middle School” starring Bill Cobbs, Lee Meriwether and Amanda Waters; and the “Left Behind” drama series starring Kirk Cameron and based on the New York Times bestselling books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.

gMovies is operated by UP, America’s favorite television channel for uplifting music and family entertainment, so rest assured that you are being offered the very best in faith conscious entertainment. The Parents Television Council™ has twice awarded its Entertainment Seal of Approval™ to UP for being “an authentic family-friendly cable network.” UP is the only television network to be so honored.
My favorite thing right now is this section here:

That is only the first two rows of documentaries.  We love the Torchlighter videos, and now we have the opportunity to see them all.  Over and over, if we want.

The video player is based on Adobe Flash Player, so you will want to be sure you have access to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.  And this is best if your internet download speed is at least 3 Mbps.

Do you want to try it free for two weeks?  Go to the link I just added here, and use code:  FREETRIAL35

Let me know what you think!

I have a 6 month membership to give away!  US and Canada only, please.

I love the idea of a movie subscription with so many genres like comedy and romance that has movies the whole family really can watch together.

I love the idea of a movie service that is family friendly. We enjoy our family movie nights, but sometimes we run out of good movies to watch together.

We're looking for a good alternative to Netflix. Thanks for letting me know there's something else out there that's way more wholesome.

Is this like iamflix?

Never heard about this till just this week and I would love to learn more. Will definitely try out the free trial! We love documentaries here as well. Having something that is family friendly seems like much better investment!
