The future of television is streaming. In fact, the present of television is streaming, too.
Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime have been around for quite some time and have helped to pave the way for newer contenders like Apple TV+ and Disney+ and the short-but-sweet viewing snippets of Quibi.. More are on their way, including upcoming services like HBO Max and NBC’s Peacock. Many households don’t even watch what traditionalists would call “TV” anymore. In fact, many don’t even have a cable account or bother with broadcast television. It’s all been replaced with a bundle of streaming services.
It’s kind of overwhelming. All these never-ending choices. All this money. And as families are all too aware, sometimes the products served up by the most popular streaming services—even movies and shows that are advertised as “family friendly”—aren’t always so great for your family.
So where should your hard-earned dollars be going? Well, that’s up to you. But before you make another viewing purchase, let me fill you in on the details of yet another platform, one targeted toward kids and families. It’s called Yippee.
TBN’s first on-demand streaming service, Yippee.tv is a faith based spot for parents and kids who are looking for “God-honoring, character-building, Jesus-glorifying programs,” According to TBN’s promotional materials. And there’s quite a selection being offered up front, like VeggieTales (including all the new episodes), The Adventures From the Book of Virtues, Owlegories, Theo and much more.
It’s a spot that’s meant to be safe for everyone, and at a pretty reasonable price. You can buy an annual subscription for $79 or you can subscribe monthly for $7.99.
Of course, no matter how “safe” a streaming service claims to be, it’s always a good idea to do some research on your end to make sure that whatever you’re viewing is right for you and your family. But, who knows, maybe as you look into Yippee, you’ll find that it’s a place, as Yippee itself says, where “characters build character.”
