As of December 27, 2016, families can gather around and watch all the family-friendly entertainment they want on PureFlix.com without having to worry about any language, sex or violence surprises.
BURLINGTON, Ontario & SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — (CANADIAN CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — PureFlix.com is heading north and expanding to the Canadian market via an exclusive strategic marketing and content partnership with Crossroads Christian Communications Inc. (CCCI).
In a new agreement with CCCI, PureFlix.com will provide Canadian families access to nearly 4,000 faith and family streaming video titles, including original series, movies, TV shows and kids’ programming. The content can be accessed from a number of different devices, including: ROKU streaming media player; Chrome browser; Apple Apps for iPad and iPhone; Google Play for Android; and Google Chromecast.
This new partnership marks a significant achievement for CCCI, making it the first time the ministry has been able to offer such a service to the Canadian market. Corporate values for CCCI and PureFlix.com are very similar; both companies serve the Christian and Evangelical markets.
“We’re confident there’s an appetite for faith and family-based content from PureFlix.com based on the fact that more than 67 percent of the Canadian population self-reports as Christian [according to the 2011 census],” said PureFlix.com CEO Greg Gudorf. “That’s a sizeable target market who we believe are seeking safe, wholesome content among their entertainment choices.”
“It’s like Netflix minus the violence, sexuality and questionable language. A parent’s dream come true,” said CCCI’s CEO, Lorna Dueck. “We will also carry the best content from 100 Huntley Street, Context TV and Tricord Media exclusively.”
“Crossroads is thrilled to lead the way for this SVOD network to establish a presence in Canada for the first time,” said Carlo Espejo, Chief Marketing Officer, CCCI. “We are excited to put the choice of what to watch, when and where, into the hands of Canadian viewers and our ministry Partners. This is an expansion into the Canadian digital media space.”
This partnership supports a shared goal of using media to spread biblical truth and influence culture for Christ. Nomadic Christians are growing in numbers like never before and so, as they seek their own enlightenment on demand and through digital media, PureFlix.com and CCCI fill a void.
Pre-registration and sign-ups for the service can be accessed at PureFlix.com.
