CuriosityStream goes international
October 1, 2015
CuriosityStream’s ad-free SVoD service for quality non-fiction content is now available to consumers internationally. Viewers from anywhere around the globe with access to a broadband connection can dive into CuriosityStream’s library and choose from hundreds of programmes about science, technology, nature and history on their home computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets or internet-connected TVs.
The service, from Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, launched in the US in March 2015 to deliver an easy and inexpensive way for consumers to watch curated, quality nonfiction programs from the world’s best filmmakers. CuriosityStream now has the capacity to host international visitors from all parts of the world.
“Unlocking all of this incredible content for worldwide viewers to easily access and enjoy is our ultimate goal,” said Elizabeth North, president of CuriosityStream. “We saw an opportunity in the marketplace to offer high quality programs that are mobile-friendly and appeal to a wide audience hungry for science, nature and history programming.”
Starting at $3.99 a month internationally, CuriosityStream subscribers can access premium programming on Internet-connected TVs, smartphones, tablets, set top boxes and additional devices. The service is priced to host and deliver three streaming resolution preferences: Standard Resolution ($3.99 per month), HD Resolution ($6.99 per month), and a 2016 offering of 4K Resolution.
