I had a great experience watching The JESUS Film using Christian Cinema's streaming service.  As an Apple TV owner I was thrilled to discover that Christian Cinema has an Apple TV app, launched in July 2016.  I had crystal clear reception without any delays.  The quality of the video was excellent, the new musical score in Dobly 5.1 surround sound was evident, and the movie was vividly colored.  It was a top-notch viewing experience.

The JESUS Film is a perennial Christian classic.  For modern day viewers it is a bit more challenging to watch as it moves much slower than we have become accustomed to.  Also, there is a LOT of history crammed into the film.  There is a reason that it has been viewed billions of times though; it is faithful visual experience of the story of Christ's life.
