Netflix announces “TEDTalks Shows”, available on instant streaming

Today, Netflix announced that it will offer “TEDTalks Shows” for its streaming members in the US, Canada, Latin America, UK and Ireland.

While the annual TED Conference is invite-only and costs a whopping $7,500 to attend, Netflix’s partnership with TED means a selection of these awe-inspiring talks will be available to all Netflix subscribers who’ve signed up for its $7.99 per month instant-streaming service.

Netflix has grouped the TEDTalks into 14 categories including, Space, Science Fiction, Beauty and, yes, Sex. While TEDTalks are normally 18-minutes long or less, TEDTalks Shows on Netflix are about 2 hours long and are comprised of different talks on a topic by various speakers.

Some TEDTalks topics include: The World’s Oldest Living Things; Bono’s Call to Action in Africa; Al Gore’s New Thinking on the Climate Crisis; Asteroids, Dark Matter and The Moon; The Design of the Universe; Flowers, Bees and Insects; Cognition; Technology; and Intimacy.

So instead of watching just one TEDTalk, TEDTalks Shows will be like watching a TED documentary on Netflix. TEDTalks Shows for Netflix streaming members are available starting today.
