Honest Pure Flix Review: Unsponsored Mom’s Real Opinion
I don’t know about you but every now and then, putting on a show for my kids lets me tackle chores and get dinner on the table much more easily!
But I’m very specific in what I let my kids watch.
I prefer educational content and will usually screen programs or watch them alongside my little ones to make sure they’re suitable.
Because let’s face it – some content is garbage while other videos send questionable messages! Especially on YouTube.
At this point, we’ve cancelled cable, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Disney at the start of the year and we’re never going back.
I have to say, our bank account is just as happy about it too because, after a while, all of these subscription services really start to add up.
Don’t you miss the days of video stores sometimes?

Is Pure Flix worth it?
It depends on two things:
If high-quality Pixar-esque animation is what you’re after, you’re going to be disappointed in Pure Flix!
But if safe Christian-friendly programming is your goal, Pure Flix is a winner in my books.
What we love about Pure Flix
I love being able to put on a show without worrying about the things my daughter is being exposed to.
There are a ton of different kids’ shows and movies to choose from including animated and live-action.
Currently, her favorites shows are:
- Bible Man – it sounds cheesy and it is but it also offers great lessons, that’s more than I can say for a lot of other kids’ programs out there!
- Micah’s Super Vlog – there are a couple of different versions of this show including one with a focus on the Armor of God. My daughters watched this at least 10 times and still absolutely loves it!
What Pure Flix needs to improve
Unfortunately, sometimes the main menu can be a bit laggy.
I feel like the interface could use a bit of work too – it reminds me a bit of a mobile webpage with the hamburger icon in the left-hand corner.
And the content…
I’m not going to lie to you – some of it is super cheesy and outdated!
It reminds me of being a kid in 2004 but my kids don’t seem to mind, haha.
At the end of the day, knowing that the girls are watching pure content is more important to me than revolutionary animation though.
Realistically, I wish we never had to turn the TV on but to make life a bit easier, spending the $7.99 a month on Christian kids’ programming is completely worth it to me.
Final Thoughts: Honest Pure Flix Review
While I don’t watch TV myself (I prefer reading and social media), I’ve found the content on Pure Flix to be worth it overall – especially as a safe alternative for my kids!
It’s nice to have a platform with Christian values at its core.
The downsides of Pure Flix are its user interface and technical issues.
Although it’s not a daily occurrence, loading can sometimes be laggy on the main menu and while watching shows however, it’s usually resolved with a reboot.
At the end of the day, I’d still recommend giving this Christian streaming service a try!
