The Catholic Church in Poland has launched a new streaming service offering all Christian content, as an alternative to Netflix.
The platform, named Katoflix will offer a space to “lead people to God” through the “power of film”, according to its website.
“We are looking for movies that could interest you, inspire, reflect, make you change your life…or make you smile.
“We want to offer you products that you can show your children without fear, recommend to friends or give to someone who is experiencing difficult moments in their life,” Katoflix’s statement reads.
The platform operates under the Latin slogan, “Vide Opera Dei”, which means “See the Works of God” in Latin, and has the same abbreviation as video on demand (VOD).
Created by Catholic-run media company Studio Katolik, the service provides a range of films, documentaries and interviews of a Christian nature in an effort to promote more religious content online.
It promises five new releases each month and whilst many features will be free to access, some titles will cost the user around £2 to view.
The platform’s current selection includes Unplanned, an American pro-life film based on the story of anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson, and Confessions of a Prodigal Son, a modern retelling of the parable of the prodigal son from the Gospel of Luke.
According to data from the Pew Research Centre, Poland has the highest church attendance in Europe with 40 per cent of the population attending weekly services while some 90 per cent of Polish citizens class themselves as Catholic.
