CuriosityStream Documentary Streaming Service 2-Year 4K Unlimited Plan $25.50 USD (~ $36.30 AUD, Was $70 USD/Yr) @ StackSocial

240
SPRING15

Found this awesome deal to get 2yrs of CuriosityStream for super cheap. Make sure to use the coupon code SPRING15 to save 15% when checking out on StackSocial.

Not sure if you need to but when buying on StackSocial I used a USA hotel address in Delaware to avoid sales tax and then when activating the code on CuriosityStream website I said my country was USA and used the same post code to activate it.

There is no VPN required to buy or activate this using a US address and the website & app both function perfectly in Australia.

Instructions are:

  • Make a StackSocial account and buy a code using discount coupon.
  • Proceed to the curiosity stream website. Press signup and pick the 4K streaming plan for $70/year and then enter your credit card information.
  • At the bottom of the credit card fields is another field for a promo code, paste in the code there and apply it. The site should update and say you have activated 2yrs subscription.
  • After successfully creating the account go into "My Account" and press to cancel your subscription, you will keep the subscription active until 2021 but you won't be charged when it expires this way.

On my LG TV there is a native app you can get from the LG app store but you must use the search box to download it as I couldn't find it in the regular app store layout.

For a list of supported devices see here:

The plan is unlimited 4K streaming and apparently let's you stream it on multiple devices concurrently.

    Thanks for posting

    Side note: Tried one of the shows to see what it was like and instantly got a "this episode is not available in your country" message.

      Looking at dns4me, there's different regions
      Australia, NZ, Canada, India, UK, USA

      I'm guessing USA will have the most content. So maybe a smart DNS service might help.

      what were you trying to watch? I can see if I can get it working

        Doesnt the OP address this by saying this is linked to your account's country address?

        Or is that not true and it's IP linked?

          I'll grab an account later & see, but most of these streaming services are locked to the region it thinks you're streaming too, not your billing region (that's how copyright agreemnets tend to work).

          I was saying that to buy from stack social I used a USA address. I was recently trying to buy a 1yr USA PSN sub on there and their system rejected me for not being in the US. I'm not sure if this curiositystream deal was supposed to be US-only or not as I didn't try with my Australian address so can neither confirm or deny.

          After buying the coupon from stacksocial I activated it on the curiositystream website without using a VPN or geo-bypass so the code may not be region locked.

          As for the service itself, I haven't personally hit any geo-blocking from my limited usage of it so far. However, i've only watched 3 different shows on it. I have no idea about how strictly they check your region for content playback.

    Decent content, say, compared to doco's on other services (Netflix, Prime etc)?

  •  

    Regular price on the curiositystream.com website is US$19.99 if you're happy with HD - though I can't see how they define "HD" anywhere. 720p, 1080p?
    Also it's not clear how much of the content is true 4K.

    How does this compare to Kanopy (which you can easily get free credits on if you have a library card)?

      Haven't heard of that before but it sounds like a cool setup. The credits per month thing makes it a limited service but probably lets them maintain a better quality library of content and being Australian will have a lot of national things that international services don't have. Going to see if that's available with my library when I get a bit of time.

    They have ads as well?

    anyone know if this works with getflix?

    •  

      Not much else does….

        Surprisingly, netflix, Hulu and CuriosityStream are still working for us with Getflix.
        Fingers crossed…

        •  

          Well…. they used to for me. Then they advertised a lifetime membership which we purchased. A few months later, the lifetime members can no longer access netflix or hulu from xbox or anything else, only from mobile devices I think it is. Now they want a subscription paid to be able to access any of it again. Scamming rip off merchants.

          •  

            @AndyRoo: I only got their lifetime subscription via StackSocial. It still works well for us for Netflix, hulu,etc on the Android phone, laptop and for the TV using the Vodafone TV box.

  •  

    It's showing $29.99 for me. How did yo get it for $25.50?

  •  

    Thanks so much OP.
    Was waiting for a while for some good offer to sign up on CuriosityStream Premium plan. This is perfect!

    •  

      No worries, do you know any other documentary services? I only know curiositystream from their YouTube ads and thought it looked interesting but the price was too high for me to try it until now :)

      •  

        I haven't tried any other yet except for a few documentaries on Netflix and hulu.

        DocPlay is worth the free one month trial. Not sure I’ll pay ~$70 per year for it though. The service is from Madman Entertainment, an Australian independent distributor, so it’s even available on Telstra TV.

    Did anyone redeem for the 4K plan? I tried (even if it said in the instructions it's only HD!) and the payment (AMEX CC) failed. The voucher got used but my account was not created. Contacted the support team to release the voucher code which they did. Wondering now if that happened due to the 4K sign up or just some CC error?

      I did use the code for the 4k plan with no issue.

      As per my OP I did use this code for the 4K plan which I'd the basis of the deal. The code is worth significantly less if redeemed on the standard plan. I'm guessing you just had a CC authorisation error, was the transaction flagged as potential fraud?

        Thanks for letting me know … I tried again with 4K and this time it worked (used a different credit card).
