HOLMDEL, N.J. - Move over Netflix and so long Hulu - new and inspiring movies that inform people of faith is finally available with FORMED.

Cable cutting has accelerated in recent years as connections have improved and bandwidth has increased. Multi-device households have become the norm. Another norm is the amount of time it takes to wade through all the mindless content on most channels.

Inspirational content of actual substance has proved few and far between for most families.
