Hey, parents. Have you ever been in this situation?
You're watching a movie with your kids or they’re watching it by themselves when all of the sudden there’s one of those scenes or some of that language that you just wished wasn’t there?
What’s worse, is a lot of films, like many of the recent superhero movies, that are marketed at kids are not suitable for them to watch. Most of them are rated M (Mature in NZ) which means they are suitable for 16 year olds. Usually it’s not the whole movie that’s bad, sometimes it's just one or two scenes that make you stop your kids from watching them.
According to our recent survey, 92% of parents agree with us and they wish there was a solution. The kids want to be able to watch these movies – the parents want to watch these movies with them, but the main alternatives are either turning it off or sitting with a trigger finger on the remote control. Until now. Bleeep is an innovative technology that offers you, as parents, the chance to filter out any objectionable material from streaming movies. This means that you decide what’s ok for your kids and what’s not.

Plus it's easy to use!
- You find the movie you want to watch on Netflix, YouTube, or other streaming provider
- You adjust the filters to your preference level
- Then play the movie
Our technology does the rest. All in real time.
THE PROTOTYPE IS FUNCTIONAL AND IS BLEEEP'ing AWESOME!!
Bleeep was formed and the technology created all in the space of 54 hours during a Google Startup Weekend in Nelson, New Zealand. It took out first place and earned the praise of many people, including some of the country’s leading entrepreneurial innovators.
THE DEV BOYS CRACKING THE CODE FOR PARENTS... BLEEEP!
TEAM BLEEEP HARD AT WORK
THE WINNERS OF STARTUP WEEKEND, NELSON 2015 ARE... BLEEEP!
But really, we created Bleeep for people like us and people like you.
Parents who want to have more control and more choice about what content our kids are exposed to. It’s not about limiting what kids can watch, but rather increasing it. They can now watch that latest action film – it’s just missing the adult-orientated stuff that you don’t want them to see.
Please support us by pledging your support or signing up on our web page to become one of the world’s first Bleeepers.
We are Bleeep - making streaming media family-friendly.

Thankyou so much for your support. Just a quick update to let you know that WE WON! Apparently the judging was so tight that the judges awarded 2 WINNERS of which we were one of them.
The Bleep Team is having a well deserved day off to recuperate after little to no sleep and 54 hours in a pressure cooker of development. We will update you soon with updates.
We are committed to making Bleeep a reality, putting the power back into the hands of all parents to make censoring decisions for their own family.
