TLDR: CuriosityStream is a streaming service with thousands of HD documentaries, series, and original programming to help viewers explore interests sure to entertain, enlighten and inspire.
Is it really any wonder why NASA decided to christen its rambunctious rover now dune-buggying over the rocky terrain of Mars as Curiosity? After all, man’s need to understand that which hasn’t been understood before is why NASA and countless other organizations and expeditions were launched in the first place.
Curiosity is the cornerstone of human advancement — and sometimes, it can be the only thing motivating you to strive for more. Sure, it might be satisfying in the moment to binge a buzzy new Netflix show…but wouldn’t it be a better use of your time learning about new discoveries from the age of dinosaurs…or the secret lives of animals…or what science truly knows about sleep?
CuriosityStream ($199 for a lifetime subscription, 20 percent off, from TNW Deals) is a streaming service that brings together entertainment and learning into a vast catalogue featuring thousands of documentaries, TV shows, and other original programming that explores all of human history and our understanding of it.
John Hendricks created CuriosityStream, a man synonymous with educational TV after founding cable outlets like the Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, and more. CuriosityStream is the next stage in that evolution, a service streamable from virtually any device offering engrossing, yet enlightening shows on topics ranging from nature and science to history and technology, from communications and engineering to sociology, theology and beyond.
The platform offers all those options, with unlimited streaming so viewers can download shows and watch anytime, anywhere without an internet connection. Members can even watch loads of HD and 4K documentaries too…assuming your devices can handle it.
CuriosityStream even allows viewers to curate their own menu of interests, finding favorite subject matter, bookmarking and cataloguing shows for later viewing, and even offering ratings and recommendations for related content. Or they can devour collections of prime content centered around themes selected by CuriosityStream’s panel of experts.
New programming is added weekly, including new offerings like the series Doug To The Rescue, featuring aerial cinematographer and drone pilot Doug Thron; or Rescued Chimpanzees of the Congo with Jane Goodall.
A lifetime subscription for an unlimited CuriosityStream HD membership is regularly $250, but with the current deal, you can save $50 and get that lifetime of access for only $199.
