CuriosityStream is a subscription-based service that delivers high-quality programming from the world's best documentary filmmakers.
CuriosityStream joins Netfix, Hulu, Prime Instant Video and Showtime on Fire TV, the tiny box that plugs into your HDTV for easy and instant access to videos, photos, music, and games in the living room. Since launch, Fire TV has become the #1 best-selling Amazon device category, with Fire TV Stick quickly becoming Amazon’s fastest-selling product ever.
Starting at just $2.99 a month, consumers can access the CuriosityStream app on the Amazon Fire TV and enjoy immediate and unlimited access to 1000+ original and first-run documentaries about topics ranging from science and nature to history and the arts.

CuriosityStream also produces exclusive, short-form documentaries, including MARS: THE JOURNEY, THE RISE & FALL OF T-REX, DARK SECRETS OF THE COSMOS and EXPLORING QUANTUM HISTORY WITH BRIAN GREENE.
“Having CuriosityStream available on Amazon Fire TV is a significant milestone for the service, which has not even been in market for a full year,” said CuriosityStream president Elizabeth Hendricks North. “Consumers can now access the service in their living rooms, along with Netflix and Hulu, to watch and share with their family and friends.”
