Does VidAngel ruin art? The answer is, maybe.
When using VidAngel you are not watching as the director envisioned. However, you're also doing this if you manually fast-forward or mute. But the director doesn't get to decide what happens in your own home. If this is something that would bother you with most movies, then VidAngel is probably not for you.
If VidAngel allows you to watch shows you never would have watched otherwise, then we would argue that VidAngel has improved your artistic experience, and VidAngel is for you!
