CuriousityStream.com is a new online streaming service which says that its mission is to provide the world’s best factual television content in affordable, ad-free, on-demand monthly service.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, in a world where television has moved from general broadcast television, to television that is divided into channels by the type of content it provides, we are currently in the third revolution of television: being able to watch exactly what you want, when you want to.
Thus far, the world of on demand television content has been provided by large scale companies like Netflix and Hulu, who generally provide fictional content and films, with some smaller sections of non-fiction and documentary type programming.
The goal of CuriousityStream.com, however, is be a streaming service that is dedicated to providing the best quality factual programming available, on topics including science, technology, civilization and the human spirit.
In addition to the content they take from leading producers of scientific television around the world, like the BBC, ZED, Flame Distribution, Terra Noa, Japan’s NHK, and independent documentarians from around the world, they also provide their own original programming, including an average of about 20 different interviews each month with leading experts and luminaries.
At this time, CuriousityStream.com does provide streaming capabilities to your desktop computer, TV, tablet, and smartphone.
The cost of this service will depend on the type of quality of streaming service you are interested in having access to, meaning that their Standard Definition package is their most affordable, at $2.99 per month, while Standard High Definition is priced at $5.99 per month, and Premium 4K Resolution is priced at $9.99 per month.
All memberships of any viewing quality are available for a free, 30 day trial in which prospective customers can see what type of programming they will have access to. If you are dissatisfied with the service, you can cancel at any time during the 30 day trial and you will not be charged, otherwise your membership will automatically begin at the end of the trial.
Since this is a monthly streaming service that is paid for on a month-to-month basis, there is no real Refund Policy available. You can cancel your service at any time, and you will still have access to the service until the end of the subscription period you have already paid for, and your subscription will not automatically renew at that time.

This service is still fairly new, so there are not many customer or user reviews available at this time. There are, however, a variety of online publications who have reviewed this service and who show a lot of enthusiasm for its potential.
Most people are especially excited that the person behind this new venture is the creator of the Discovery Channel, a channel which has long been respected for its scientific and thought provoking factual content.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there is a very large selection of online streaming services that provide mostly fictional content with a smaller selection of factual content, but CuriosityStream.com may be unique in its focus on all factual content.
