Disney+ Breaks Promise, Adds R-Rated Movies to Streaming Platform

Linkedin Share

Warning to parents: Disney+ has broken its promise to keep R-rated movies off its streaming platform. The Parents Television and Media Council (PTC) issued a press release chastising Disney+ after they “made R-rated Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan available to subscribers.”

In the press release, PTC accuses Disney+ of lying to parents. “Three years ago, the Walt Disney Company made a promise to families: No R-rated movies on Disney+, they said. It’s a family-focused platform, they said.”

The Christian Post quotes PTC president Tim Winter, “‘After decades of corporate brilliance establishing itself as the world’s most trusted brand for families, today’s C-level suite at Disney has decided to flush it all down the toilet.’”

He went on to say, “‘One day in the no-too-distant future, business schools will point back to this corrupt corporate U-Turn as they analyze what happened to the once-great Walt Disney Company,’” he predicted. “’In the meantime, families will continue to be woefully underserved by Hollywood.'”

In the same article, Melissa Henson, program director for the PTC, expressed concerns about viable options for parents wanting to protect their children from exposure to mature content.

She observed that there are numerous options for those who want that content but “‘There are very few streaming platforms that offer only family-friendly content. Disney Plus was one of them.

“‘And now, no longer Disney Plus. So, there are fewer and fewer really truly safe options for families.'”

One strong family-friendly option is the Kids and Family programming on Liftable.tv. Here, parents can find safe, quality content for all ages such as Cubekins, PicTrain, Holy Moly, Wild World of History, and Michael Jr. | Funny How Life Works — with much more coming soon!

Liftable.tv continues to add new edifying options that will assure parents their children will have a range of choices for entertainment, education, and family time.

Will you take a stand and cancel your Disney+ subscription?

Movies and television are vehicles that should support the lessons and values parents want to instill in their children, not undermine them.

Parents must be ever-vigilant to watch out for streaming services promising to deliver only what is family-friendly. Some brands are constantly evolving their definition of that term and stretching it beyond what many parents consider acceptable.

Disney+ is losing its place as a brand families can trust but streaming services like Liftable see the need and are rising to the opportunity to create what parents are looking to provide for their children.
