Release Date: 7/23/2019

LOS ANGELES (July 23, 2019) – The Parents Television Council has announced that it has given its Seal of Approval® to UP Faith and Family, a commercial-free streaming service for families with content that is safe for families to watch together.

Like Netflix and Amazon Prime, UP Faith and Family offers a broad cross-section of genres, from original dramas and reality shows to documentaries and nature programs, to features based on classic children’s books, to feel-good romantic comedies. The key difference is that whereas Netflix and Amazon Prime have a substantial volume of mature-audiences-only programming to navigate around, virtually everything on UP Faith and Family is suitable for family audiences.

“UP Faith and Family has crafted a streaming video on demand service that can entertain families without being shocking, explicit or offensive. We believe there is a huge and woefully underserved marketplace for such a service, and as such, we proudly award it our PTC Seal of Approval®,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

“The PTC Seal of Approval is the gold standard in measuring the quality and suitability of family entertainment,” said UP Entertainment Founder and CEO Charley Humbard. “As America’s favorite streaming service for families, we couldn't be more pleased to have received the PTC‘s highest rating.”
