CuriosityStream, the factual video-on-demand service from Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, has launched on Amazon Fire TV devices.

CuriosityStream president Elizabeth Hendricks North described the Amazon launch as a “significant milestone for the service”.

“Consumers can now access the service in their living rooms, along with Netflix and Hulu, to watch and share with their family and friends,” she said.

CuriosityStream is already available to watch via Roku, Chromecast, and Apple TV devices, as well as on phones and tablets.

The service launched in the US in March and rolled out globally at the end of September. CuriosityStream now claims to offer more than 1,000 original and first-run documentaries and is available for US$2.99 per month in SD or US$5.99 in HD.
