Constant improvement is part of our culture here at Technology Associates. We are always looking for ways to expand our knowledge and understanding so we can best tackle whatever challenges come our way. This healthy curiosity is part of what makes us good at what we do – truly understanding the situation and getting to the root cause is what helps us resolve problems instead of just treat the symptoms.
Naturally, when it comes to science and technology, we are insatiable. That is why we love this new app CuriosityStream. Started by the creator of the Discovery Channel, CuriosityStream is the HBO of non-fiction content. It is a streaming service that delivers unlimited, commercial-free science and technology content for a very low monthly fee. CuriosityStream sources content from all the best producers you already know: BBC, ZED, Flame Distribution, Terra Noa and Japan’s NHK and they are adding original content too. The best part though is that it allows you dive deep into a subject and follow your curiosity. It features everything from short clips to feature length documentaries, all presented in an easily approachable format and tone. Currently they have about 1300 titles available but more is being created and added every month. Subjects cover a range of topics across four general areas: science, technology, civilization and human spirit. We’ve been binge watching Stephen Hawking’s Universe and my new obsession Plane Resurrection – it’s amazing how they can take a piece of WW2 history and restore it to it’s former glory.
Best of all is the price: standard definition is $2.99 per month for unlimited viewing and HD is only $5.99 per month. So if you are naturally curious like us, check out CuriosityStream, available on all the usual mobile and streaming platforms.
