Today CuriosityStream announced that they are cutting the cost of their subscription streaming service and is launching a free ad-supported version. This all comes as CuriosityStream announced a slower than expected growth in subscribers.
The new price for CuriosityStream’s HD plan is now just $2.99 a month down from $5.99 a month. The 4K plan now costs $9.99 a month down from $11.99 a month. You will also be able to access some of their content for free with ads through their CuriosityStream Showcase.
If you watch the CuriosityStream Showcase you will now find a 15-second unskippable ad at the start of the show. The first sponsorship went live today with Sprint.
CuriosityStream comes from the founder of the Discovery Channel and offers a range of great programming. CuriosityStream is available on Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, Apple TV, Android, and iOS.
Back in March the president of CuriosityStream said: “CuriosityStream has some of the best science, nature, history and technology programs available anywhere,” stated Elizabeth Hendricks North. “Our subscribers have gravitated toward the more in-depth programming, in contrast to the trends we see in linear television. While nonfiction documentaries about space and physics topics are hard to come by on broadcast and cable television, CuriosityStream subscribers have ready access to top performing CuriosityStream Originals like Deep Time History, Digits, Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places and many more. We will continue to invest in quality, original productions that will ensure CuriosityStream remains the world’s best streaming destination for on-demand documentaries.”
