CuriosityStream in 4K is great, but pricey (and limited)
High-definition streaming is great. But ultra-high definition is even better. And, generally speaking, if you can watch something in 4K, you should well consider it.
CuriosityStream — which features thousands of shows and documentaries in the realm of science, art and technology — is available in 4K resolution. You'll pay either $9.99 a month, or $69.99 if you want to pay for a year up front.
There are some caveats, though.
First is that the 4K streams are available only in the web app, on Roku, or on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, or Chromecast. Notably missing is the native CuriosityStream app on Vizio TVs, as well as mention of any other smart TVs that support 4K.
And not not all shows on CuriosityStream are available in 4K resolution.
Other than that, though, you should be good. Just know that the 4K feed of CuriosityStream costs a good bit more than the HD feed. So maybe try things out first to see what you think.
For those who aren't afraid to learn a little
You can never have too much knowledge. That's where CuriosityStream comes in, with thousands of shows that are able to teach and entertain.
Roku makes it easy to get in on the 4K action without spending an arm and a leg. If you've got a 4K-capable TV, this is a great way to go.
If you're going to get an Amazon Fire TV device, this is the one you want, with 4K resolution and support for Dolby Atmos.
