Now There's a Netflix for Science Fans

Jan 15, 2015

Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks is launching a streaming service for science enthusiasts.

The service is called CuriosityStream and hits on March 18, Deadline reports.

Costing $2.99 a month for standard video and $9.99 a month for high-definition viewing, it will provide access to science and nature material from BBC Worldwide, Terra Noa, Japanese channel NHK and France's ZED. There will also be original programming, including interviews with prominent thinkers.

"For consumers, our aim is to provide the first and best on-demand video streaming destination that aggregates and curates the world’s best factual content," said Hendricks, who retired from Discovery Communications last May.
