Stream Curiosity Stream if you want movies and shows that won’t turn your brain to mush. The service (stylized as CuriosityStream) specializes in documentaries and docuseries. It allows you to educate yourself on an incredible range of topics.

What is Curiosity Stream?

CuriosityStream, launched in 2015, is a destination for award-winning documentary series covering all manner of non-fiction genres including science, nature, history, technology, society, lifestyle, and many more.

If you’re into science, David Attenborough’s Light on Earth examines the fascinating background of bioluminescence. History buffs will be at home with series like The Spying Game: Tales from the Cold War and The Normans. There are even tons of offbeat offerings like Heston’s Dinner in Space and The Secret World of Lego. And that’s just a taste of what Curiosity Stream offers.

Best of all, you can stream from anywhere, anytime. Learn from your laptop, phone, tablet, and of course, television.

Curiosity Stream: Built with kids in mind

For kids stuck at home and getting their brains fried by equal parts Netflix and Nintendo, the service is a healthy escape that will actually feed their heads.

With CuriosityStream Kids Mode, parents can filter out explicit content such as historical war violence, disturbing imagery, and even sexual content. That way, they can stream through all manner of subjects from geography to nature and wildlife so their minds are still primed and ready to learn once quarantine season ends.

How much does Curiosity Stream cost?

You can try out Curiosity Stream in HD quality for the low monthly price of $2.99. If you’re willing to commit for the full year, it’s $19.99. If you’re interesting in 4K, the service offers that option. It’ll cost you more, though: $9.99 per month, or $59.99 annually.
