CuriosityStream comes from the founder of the Discovery Channel and offers a range of great programming.
“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.”
Now CuriosityStream is predicting strong growth going forward. “We are on track to meet a near-term goal of 1 million subscribers, and we are confident that CuriosityStream will reach a long term goal of achieving more than 30 million subscribers by 2026,” stated Hendricks North in a recent press release.
It seems that it hopes to do this by following a hard line of programing. “In 2017, we have the best line up of science and history programs anywhere,” Burns said. Exclusive CuriosityStream Originals debuting on the service in 2017 include the science series Ancient Earth, available now, about extinction events in Earth’s history, as well as the space exploration special, Miniverse, where viewers will tour a version of the Solar System scaled down to the size of the continental United States, hosted by Astronaut Chris Hadfield and featuring guest Michio Kaku. Later in the year, subscribers will see new episodes from the hit program Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places and the groundbreaking search for life on exoplanets in Living Universe.
Hopefully its prediction comes true. It would show how strong the online streaming market can be.
