I’ve had the opportunity to review several CuriosityStream series in the past; each one has been engaging, fun, and left me wanting more. Some are straightforward documentaries, exploring what we do — and don’t — know about our universe. And some are more playful adventures, imagining what it’s like to stand on a distant planet or what the solar system’s giant planets would look like hanging in our sky.

Currently offering more than 1,500 documentaries on demand, CuriosityStream is the brainchild of Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks. Its advisory board includes well-known names from a wide number of fields, including Glenn Close, Michio Kaku, Wynton Marsalis, and Jill Tarter. CuriosityStream is dedicated to promoting science, medicine, nature, history, and more through engaging storytelling, stunning visuals, and, above all, bringing a human element to each tale they tell.

Starting today, CuriosityStream is partnering with VRV, a platform focused on delivering quality content through premium SVOD channels that include some that might already sound familiar to you, if you’re a science fiction or anime fan: Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Funimation, Nerdist, and Shudder. Through VRV, you can now get immediate access to CuriosityStream’s most popular series and documentaries on your computer, mobile device, or other home entertainment system.

CuriosityStream is now available as part of VRV’s Premium $9.99-per-month package, or as a standalone subscription for just $5.99 per month. Whether you’re interested in CuriosityStream content alone or any other VRV offering, there are plenty of ways to watch, with subscription bundles, a-la-carte options, and ad-supported services available. 

Because you’re very likely here based on an interest in astronomy, some of CuriosityStream’s space- and physics-based series I recommend checking out include Stephen Hawking’s Favorite PlacesThe Secrets of Quantum PhysicsHubble’s Imager, and The Hunt for Dark Matter. If you’re looking for something completely different, you might try Underwater Wonders Of The National ParksDavid Attenborough's Light On Earth, or Nature’s Mathematics.

Or just click around the site until you find something that sparks your interest. Go ahead – I guarantee you'll find something you'll be glad you watched.
