Although CuriosityStream now comes included or bundled with a large number of other services now, you can still subscribe to it as a solo streaming service. CuriosityStream is one of the cheapest streaming services around, but you can get a rather extensive free trial if you know where to look.

Before we start, we want to highlight a featured deal. The Disney Bundle is one of the best options for streaming in 2020 with a package that offers a rich catalogue of content for all ages including movies, shows, and sports.

Sign up below to get the whole bundle for only $12.99 a month or start a 7 day trial for Disney Plus.

Does CuriosityStream Have a Free Trial?

If you check the CuriosityStream website, you won’t find any mention of a free trial at this time of writing. CuriosityStream has offered a 7-day free trial in the past, and may indeed offer one again in the future.

However, you can get a free trial of the service if you add is at a channel on Amazon Prime Video.

Note that if you have Amazon Prime already, you have access to Amazon Prime Video already. That means all you need to do is go to your Prime Video, search for CuriosityStream, and add the channel to get the free trial.

How Long Is the CuriosityStream Free Trial?

When you get CuriostyStream as an Amazon Prime Video channel, you get a 30-day free trial. But as noted, you won’t get this free trial offer if you try to sign up through the CuriosityStream website.

How Do I Sign Up for the Free Trial?

Because you can’t get the CuriosityStream 30-day free trial directly from the website, you’ll need to go through Amazon Prime Video first.
