CuriosityStream – $2.99/month or $12/year

You’ll pay $2.99/month or $12/year ($1.66/month) for CuriosityStream’s default plan. This is a really incredible deal, and it makes CuriosityStream one of the cheapest streaming services out there. Even if you only watch it occasionally, you can get your money’s worth. 

CuriosityStream 4K – $9.99/month or $41.99/year

It costs more than triple the cost of a base-tier subscription to get CuriosityStream 4K. We’re not sure why this is so much more expensive than the base-tier subscription.

Many CuriosityStream shows don’t even support 4K, so you won’t always get 4K support. Our recommendation is to avoid this plan and stick with the basic CuriosityStrem

If you want 4K from CuriosityStream, you’ll pay more than triple the cost of the standard CuriosityStream subscription. This is a huge price jump, and we’re not sure why 4K is so much more expensive.

As a comparison, the cheapest Netflix service is $7.99/month. To get 4K, you’ll need Netflix Premium, which costs $15.99/month. That’s a much smaller relative jump, compared to CuriosityStream. 

When Was The Last Time CuriosityStream Raised Its Prices?

The CuriosityStream price has never actually been raised – only lowered. 

It’s true! The service launched at $6/month for its standard subscription, and $12/month for 4K. Then, in August of 2018, it dropped prices to their current level. By doing so, the service hoped to attract more subscribers from pricier competitors like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

More recently, in February 2020, it dropped prices even further to just $12 for a full year.

Does CuriosityStream Have Any Paid Add-Ons?

No. There are no additional costs or add-ons for CuriosityStream. 

However, you can add it as an additional channel to some streaming services like Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV, and Sling. Doing this won’t save you any money, however – it remains the same price when purchased as an add-on. 

Does CuriosityStream Have Extra Hidden Fees?

No. There are no hidden fees or additional costs associated with using CuriosityStream. You’ll choose your plan and pay the advertised price, no exceptions. 

Does CuriosityStream Offer A Free Trial For New Users?
