Welcome to UnchainedTV. This website is the hub for our brand new television network that offers hundreds of documentaries, cooking shows, talks shows, music videos and more! It’s 100% plant-based, climate-friendly and cruelty-free!  You can watch it right now from your laptop! Just click here! 

WHY UnchainedTV?

Mainstream media is dropping the ball, virtually ignoring the biggest crisis the human race has ever faced: climate apocalypse. We are breaking irreversible boundaries and racing towards a point of no return.  Yet, crucial issues regarding this unfolding catastrophe are ignored because advertiser-based media is controlled by its advertisers, the very entities creating the problem.

Enter UnchainedTV

We are not beholden to advertisers. We are a non-profit news network on a mission to tell the truth and get people around the world the information they need to change their lifestyles. We can no longer wait for governments, which are also controlled by those very same industries, to act. We have been told individuals are relatively powerless to fix this. That is a lie. Together, we can pull ourselves back from the brink of climate devastation. So… let’s do this! Be a part of it! Watch our content! Share it out! Click the social media links on this story to share it out!

When Jane told me about the launch, I immediately downloaded the free app on my phone. I was very impressed. Because I am a writer for her non-profit’s website, I already knew that the organization reports on a wide range of topics, from the climate crisis to the health crisis to delicious vegan recipes. This APP also has a wide range of content: vegan and animal rights breaking news, documentaries, vegan cooking shows, music videos, plant-based business profiles, fitness, and talk shows.

But, I did not expect the app to be so comprehensive and easy to use. You have two options. The home section offers all the videos from which to choose at your leisure.   The live option offers content constantly streamed “as live.”  All the videos are ready to watch at the tap of your finger, organized into useful topics: Trending, Cooking Shows, News, Documentaries, Mini Docs, Getting Fit, Talk Shows, Plant-Based Business Hour, Events, and Music.


You can Watch Many Documentaries with the UnchainedTV App

As a freelance writer on vegan and animal issues, I try to keep up to date on our movement’s films. And, yet, I found so many documentaries in the UnchainedTV APP that I had not seen.

For instance, the first in the list of documentaries I saw was Give Me Shelter, Katie Cleary’s movie just published on the channel. Featuring many beautifully shot interviews with experts, the movie exposes the underground black market trade of wild and exotic animals and features Hollywood icon Tippi Hedren, an animal activist who is also famous for starring in The Birds, among many classic films.

Also, it was great to watch the young vegan activist Genesis Butler getting inspired by the life of the late American labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez. It turns out that they are related. You can watch this short documentary titled Cesar Chavez: Respect for All.

Using the UnChainedTV APP, you can now also watch the multi-awarded documentary Countdown to Year Zero. Jane Velez-Mitchell produced and directed this film, shot and edited by Jeff Adams of VeganLinked.  It’s a wake-up call about how the global economy has less than a decade to transition to a plant-based system.

And I found classics too. Vegucated, the 2011 guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. And, of course, the legendary Earthlings (10th Anniversary edition). The poignant documentary, narrated by Oscar-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix, is credited for being the trigger that turned many people vegan. I remember how there was a time where animal rights activists commonly greeted each other with “have you watched Earthlings yet?” Well, now with UnchainedTV, everyone can watch it for free.


News and Events Can Also be Watched in the UnchainedTV App

Animal rights protests are hardly ever reported on by mainstream media.  Now, UnChainedTV brings you the breaking news from the streets, from anti-fur protests to vigils, from VegFests to new vegan restaurant openings.

It’s all there, in chronological order, for you to get up to date. For instance, I watched a dramatic Cube of Truth style demo at the Virginia Beach oceanfront, followed by an animal rights protest in Canada and a series of protests and speeches in Glasgow during the COP26 climate summit.  There was also an interview with Eric Adams, the new vegan mayor of New York City, plus an anti-vivisection march.

For a movement so reliant on grassroots activism, this is an informative tool to find out what is going on out there. But, it’s also a nice way to remotely participate in small events all over the world. By watching the videos, and listening to the inspiring speeches, you are supporting courageous animal activists. Sometimes, only a handful of onlookers see these protests in real life. But, thanks to the UnchainedTV app, many average Americans will now be exposed to this information.
