New streaming service will offer films inspired by Christianity


With 1.2 billion Catholics in the world, one would certainly think there’s a market for a streaming video service promoting Christian values through film.


Two Italian companies think so. Vetrya, an Italian digital research and innovation agency, and the production company Officina della Communicazione announced Thursday the creation of VatiVison, a service to stream films, documentaries and programs with religious content on all digital media.

VatiVison will be available in Italy beginning Monday and plans to expand to other “primary” target countries, such as the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Spain, Colombia, the Philippines, and Poland, Crux reported.

It will offer original programming such as Lourdes, a documentary, and the 2018 television series The Great Popes, about Popes John XXIII, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis. The model will be on-demand, like Apple iTunes, rather than a subscription service like Netflix.
