Right now, a lifetime subscription to the CuriosityStream HD Plan is on sale for $149.99 down from $250, which is a 40-percent discount. The platform was founded by John Hendricks, who is the founder of Discovery Communications, and it contains thousands of the world’s best documentaries, shows, shorts, and original content that are otherwise difficult to find.

CuriosityStream provides multiple search tools so that you can easily discover new content based on the subject area or time period that you’re looking for. It also features immersive experiences that are narrated by experts like David Attenborough, whose projects work to educate you about the natural world, as well as Michio Kaku and Brian Greene, whose works cover space, time, and the future. All of this is presented alongside stunning visuals.

Each week, the platform updates and adds new content, so you’ll never run out of actually interesting things to watch. CuriosityStream learns your preferences as you use it and can improve recommendations based on your favorites, which it allows you to bookmark. The platform is highly rated across a variety of outlets by both critics and consumers: 4/5 stars on PCMag, 4.7 on the Apple App Store, and 4.3 on Google Play. As a Flixed review explains, “…CuriosityStream’s solid catalog of documentaries gives people who want fact-based programming a home.”

This subscription provides you with lifetime access that is available on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV 4, Xbox One, plus desktop and mobile browsers and apps. Normally $250, you can enjoy a lifetime of educational entertainment with CuriosityStream for $149.99 for a limited time.
