Wonderful Original Content

I've greatly enjoyed watching shows during my first month of subscription. There are amazing documentaries not available elsewhere. The app works well, and I've had no issues loading or watching content. I would highly recommend this for all fellow lovers of history.

The one thing I feel they are missing at this point is an app for the AppleTV. I still watch most of my content on my television, and that means I have to airplay the content. That works well, but it means I've tied up my phone during playback.

Excellent mini-documentaries on all human history

This is an erudite and entertaining podcast with world class historians interviewed by the inquisitive Dan Snow. There is a broad range of topics, often adjusted to track contemporaneous events (e.g. the current pandemic). Audio may occasionally be problematic with slurring and volume fluctuations, but the content really makes these inconveniences palatable. Best podcast I follow by far!

Well worth the price!

I have been an avid supporter of this channel since it was a kickstarter. I really appreciate Dan Snow’s efforts to make history even more accessible and updated. The app is great, the content engaging and between this and his podcast, I have many things to listen to and watch and learn along with my son. Highly recommended!
