Great App !

I’m a documentary junkie ! This definitely scratches my itch for knowledge! A great value too ! This is like having PBS’s Nova, the Science Channel, Nat Geo and the Discovery channels rolled in to one, just a click away ! They say variety is the spice of life, this app is a full on spice cabinet!
One feature I especially enjoy is how mainstream media usually just touches on an event, where this app goes in depth on the story. An example is the recent discovery of a black hole. A two minute cover on mainstream media After watching a story on CuriosityStream l now understand it better. The bonus is seeing the people behind its discovery. It’s like they are having a conversation with me in my living room ! Education with no test questions, just for pure educational knowledge!
Kudos to the developers and those associated with the development of this amazing app! A sincere thank you to the men and women behind the development and production of this app !

iPhone app is bad, recent ADT sponsorship kills it

CANCELING SUBSCRIPTION: So, the content is good, but the iPhone app likes to freeze the video fairly regularly upon starting, while the audio continues. I haven’t noticed this on my iPads or Apple TVs. But what kills it for me, and why I’m canceling, is because someone thought that it was soooo intelligent and sooo smart to get ADT to sponsor the programming "without commercial interruptions".

Cute. But in a totally cynical and sarcastic way. Because, now, we’re forced to watch an unskippable ADT commercial before a episode will play.

Technically, "without commercial interruptions", but with a commercial. Technically, a perverse technicality.

Okay, let’s recap here. ONE; I’m PAYING to watch documentaries, not ads from horrible companies. TWO; anyone who has ever dealt with ADT will tell you that they’re a horrible, horrible company, with absolutely ZERO ethics. Their sole mission is to swindle folks with their bait-and-switch schemes. So, to financially align yourself with such a company is unconscionable: you’re quite literally profiting from money that ADT has swindled from the backs of hard-working Americans, Curiousity Stream!

Roku app is just okay

CS has some good shows but many of them don’t go into enough detail. There is one show called Dynasties that skips from one topic to the next without much continuity and on the Kennedy family tree you included Caroline and made no mention of JFK Jr. Other programs are short, 10 minute sound bites. The Roku app kept crashing my device. In a series, it doesn’t automatically play the next episode. There’s a like button but no dislike button. I’m not going to continue my subscription, there are too many bugs. Why bother to provide a decent viewing experience, it’s only 3 bucks and nobody watches anyway.
