CuriosityStream joins YouTube TV line-up

CuriosityStream, the SVOD service launched by Discovery founder John Hendricks, has joined YouTube TV’s line-up of premium add-on channels in the US.

CuriosityStream is now available as part of YouTube’s over-the-top TV service for an additional US$3 per month.

A basic YouTube TV membership costs US$40 and gives users cable-free live TV from over 60 networks and a cloud DVR service with no storage limits.

“We are thrilled to partner with YouTube TV to bring CuriosityStream’s incredible library of original and premier titles to the vMVPD’s core lineup of traditional broadcast and cable networks and premium channels,” said CuriosityStream’s new president and CEO, Clint Stinchcomb.

“YouTube TV is proving that traditional linear television and digital channels can be offered to the consumer seamlessly and successfully. This is the next evolution.”

YouTube TV’s director of content partnerships, Heather Moosnick, said: “We are excited to add CuriosityStream to YouTube TV and offer our members first-in-class documentaries from around the globe covering science, history, health, human interest and more.”
