CuriosityStream Rolls Out Enhanced Kids’ Programming Feature

CuriosityStream has launched the Stay in, Stay Curious campaign, which includes an enhanced Kids’ Mode that creates a kid-friendly space in the platform’s library of documentary films and series.

The Kids’ Mode feature is now available across all CuriosityStream subscriptions and devices. When enabled, it filters out access to content that includes visually explicit violence that is occasionally seen in historical re-creations, shows with disturbing imagery and visually explicit sexual content that is occasionally seen in nature films, for example.

Further, CuriosityStream is temporarily slashing its price to $12 for a full year’s subscription. Subscribers will have immediate access to watch thousands of features, series and short-form films on science, nature, history, travel, adventure, lifestyle and more. The Stay In, Stay Curious campaign is for annual HD and 4K subscriptions, as well as gift cards.

Devin Emery, head of growth for CuriosityStream, said: “As our world has entered uncharted waters over the past weeks, we have pushed ourselves to accelerate projects like Kids’ Mode that we hope will make it a bit easier for parents to keep their kids entertained and learning while providing the peace of mind that they are in a wholesome and safe content environment. We want to do what we can to support families and to help kids continue to engage their curiosity while spending more time at home.”
