What is CuriosityStream?
Unlike Netflix, Disney+, and some other streaming services, CuriosityStream only hosts documentaries. The genres range from nature to science, to societal and kids’ documentaries. These documentaries are extracted from the BBC, NHK, and other TV channels. But with your money, you’ll also get some exclusive, original content from CuriosityStream itself. So if you’re a non-fiction fanatic, this is the right streaming service for you. It’s also a huge hit for schools and other educational institutions.
The subscription costs USD $2.99 for high-definition images and USD $9.99 for ultra HD 4K. You get a free one-week trial before you begin your subscription. Honestly, it’s pretty affordable for all the content you’re getting. Plus, it’s available in all countries, worldwide. So you don’t have to worry about installing a VPN or going through any hassle to get a subscription.
To add, CuriosityStream is super flexible! You can add it to your TV via Chromecast, or download it on your mobile device as an app. On Amazon Home, you can search up “CuriosityStream” and download it. Then you can view it on Amazon Fire TV or Fire Stick. This way you can enjoy from anywhere and at any time that you like.
What happens after you restart or reactivate a subscription?
After you cancel a subscription, you will not be charged for the next billing period. So when you restart or reactivate your subscription, you will not have to enter your card information again. It’s a pretty hassle-free process; you will automatically be charged for the next billing month.
