“Man came by to hook up my cable TV;
We settled in for the night, my baby and me.
We switched ’round and ’round ’til half-past dawn:
There was fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on.”
– Bruce Springsteen, “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)”
Cable TV is headed toward irrelevance. In a few more decades, screens that only serve as televisions will likely follow them. A lot has changed in the 30 years since The Boss penned his slam on the boob tube, but one truth remains the same — for many, it still feels like there’s nothin’ on.
Which is amazing considering the virtual tsunami of video content at our fingertips every single minute of every single day. Of course, if you’ve got some critical taste, don’t care about what a Kardashian is, and would like to actually learn something from your time staring at the screen, it can be a rough journey sometimes finding something worthy of you.
CuriosityStream ($149.25 for a lifetime subscription after code STREAM25 from TNW Deals) was created for those types of viewers.
Launched by Discovery Communications founder and media visionary John Hendricks, the man who founded the Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, and other great educational outlets, this is a streaming service dedicated to the knowledge-hungry viewer.
As a member, viewers get access to literally thousands of the world’s best documentaries and documentary programming. It’s HD and even 4K docs available on virtually any web-enabled device with new content added weekly.
And the subject areas are as varied as the things there are to learn.
From science and history to technology and society to nature, the award-winning collection of exclusives and original works offer a never-ending flood of engaging, educational, enlightening content that entertains while it makes you smarter.
Among the new editions to the channel are Engineering the Future, dedicated to extraordinary individuals building amazing machines that could change the world. Or in The History of Home, star Nick Offerman narrates an exploration of the history of what makes houses homes. Or get engrossed by The Kingdom, going deep inside the world of fungi, the alien life that accounts for the largest and oldest organisms alive today.
And that’s just the start. You can watch what you like, or even download shows and films so you can watch anytime, even when there’s no internet connection in sight. Users can even craft their own viewing experience, curating playlists by subject and organizing shows to watch later so you can devour everything offered by CuriosityStream’s panel of experts.
And if you ever feel like there’s nothin’ on, new content is added weekly.
