The new service will be accessible to Cox Communications Digital Cable customers who subscribe to the package by selecting the “Faith and Family Movies” category from the On DEMAND menu. All of the programming is available to subscribers on an unlimited basis, 24 hours a day, at anytime with no commercial interruption for only $6.99 per month. Original faith-based series and mini-series will be added to the service’s on-demand programming in the future.

Our goal is to deliver superior, wholesome entertainment to America’s living rooms, and we are proud that Cox is our first partner in this endeavor.”
The original films produced by Faith & Family Entertainment LLC to premiere on “Faith & Family Movies” will be based on stories of faith, love, hope, redemption and family. All films in each month’s offering will be select, mainstream movies with major stars, such as Katherine Heigl, James Earl Jones, Faith Ford, Shirley Jones, Eriq LaSalle, Meredith Baxter, Ed Asner, Lori Loughlin, Cicely Tyson and Christian Bale.
