Shop the streaming deals, below:
CuriosityStream Anniversary Sale
CuriosityStream turns 7 years old! And to celebrate, the streamer is slashing 25% off its service for new subscribers. Now until March 20, you can score access to the “edutainment” streaming service for $14.99/yr., or $5 off its standard HD subscription price with promo code CS7 at checkout. That breaks down to just $1.25/mo.
If you’re not familiar with CuriosityStream, it’s the home of awards-worthy short- and long-form documentaries covering a wide range of topics, including science, technology, nature, crime, travel, adventure, history, and much more. The service even includes documentaries narrated by top celebrities, such as Samuel L. Jackson, Kristen Bell, Shaquille O’Neal, Nick Offerman, Queen Latifah, and others.
Fire TV Stick
This weekend, you can pick up the Fire TV Stick for $24.99, or $15 off, at Amazon. That’s nearly a 40% savings on the retail giant’s original streaming device. This model comes with a new remote that can control, not only the Fire TV Stick itself, but also your TV with power and volume buttons. Now you don’t need two remotes to enjoy your favorite titles from Netflix, Disney+, Twitch, Prime Video, and many other streaming apps.
This is also your last chance to take advantage of Sling TV’s 14 days of free access promotion with select Fire TV streamers. Sling TV is one of the best ways to watch cable channels without a cable subscription. It comes with up to 50 channels — including A&E, ESPN, HGTV, TNT and TBS, USA Network, and more — that can be streamed just about anywhere on just about any device. This promo expires on March 19.
Not into Fire TV? Amazon also has the Roku Ultra on sale for $69, or $31 off its list price. That’s a 31% discount on the tech company’s fastest and most powerful streaming device. Its menus are snappy and speedy, while its video streaming quality is smooth and fast with Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity built-in.
The Roku Ultra even has Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support for sharp and brilliant picture quality, as well as deep and immersive audio. It also has access to the largest library of streaming channels, such as Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Paramount+, and much, much more.
Amazon eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router
Is your Netflix always buffering and slow? If that’s the case, then you might need a new router to speed up your home Wi-Fi. This weekend, you can get the eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router on sale for $83, or $46 off, at Amazon. That’s nearly a 40% savings.
It can cover up to 1,500 square feet with Wi-Fi speeds up to 900 Mbps (megabytes per second), which is great for streaming 4K video quality on multiple devices at once. This is a much better router than the one from your cable company.
TCL 70-inch 4-Series 4K Ultra HD Smart Android TV
The TCL 70-inch Class 4-Series LED 4K Ultra HD Smart Android TV is on sale for $499.99, or $330 off, at Best Buy. That’s nearly a 40% savings and the lowest price on the internet right now.
This is an ideal entry-level 4K TV for a large living room, thanks to its massive 70-inch Ultra HD display, Chromecast and Google Assistant inside, and Android TV (Google TV) streaming platform built-in with quick access to Netflix, Peacock, YouTube TV, Google Play Movies & TV, and much more. Not bad for less than $500.
