And you thought you ran out of things to watch!

You thought you watched it all—every TV show, every movie, every docu-series, every everything—and you were bummed. Frankly, all this social distance content streaming been pretty sweet as far as you’re concerned! So when you found yourself getting bored with the big screen, you wondered what you’d do to keep cool indoors this summer. Lo and behold, here’s Topic

Topic is a new streaming platform that calls itself an “ambitious new entertainment and storytelling studio.” It’s made by First Look Media (you may know it from here) and puts an emphasis on “stories of consequence,” whether that comes in the form of Academy Award®-winning films, television series, or audio and digital shorts.  Essentially, you’ll find content that will make you think or feel or both as opposed to some of the more mindless entertainment available elsewhere (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Some you’ll definitely have heard of (like We Need to Talk About Kevin), some will seem vaguely familiar, and some will be brand-spanking-new because they’re Topic originals. From rare indie gems to diverse international offerings to thought-provoking new series, you’ll love Topic if you’re looking to discover something different. And if you’re jonesing to travel, you’ll especially love how much content from across the globe is available—stamp your virtual passport and settle in for a nice air-conditioned binge. 

Topic can be watched on all major platforms including Apple TV®, iOS, Roku, Android, and Fire TV, so you can stream at home, on the go, or from your favorite shady spot in the park. This half-off subscription deal includes ad-free streaming, 4K resolution for select films and series, and up to two screens at a time. Find something more meaningful to watch, from close to home or around the world.  A 1-year subscription to Topic Streaming Platform is on sale now for $29.99, or you can lock in a second year for the same savings of 50% off the original price at just $59.99. 

Prices subject to change.

Do you have your stay-at-home essentials? Here are some you may have missed.
