    It wasn’t that long ago that I “cut the cord” and boy, was that a happy, happy day, Being one of those odd people who don’t care for network TV and is happy with Nat Geo, Nat Geo Wild, PBS, and other similar programming, you can imagine how happy I was when I stumbled onto CuriosityStream. At $3.99 a month it is the best bargain of any “paid” site, Smithsonian Earth is right up there too. I can watch Curiosity all day and never run out of fascinating things to watch. Whether it’s ancient civilizations and history or beautiful ocean and animal documentaries, there is a wide variety, something for everyone. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not some brainiac nerd, I am 73 and just enjoy keeping my mind stimulated. I have been known also to binge watch things like Falling Skies, The 100, and Mozart in the Jungle. I am also waiting for season 5 of “The Vikings” to start on Nov. 29.
    CuriosityStream is not only a great place for entertainment but if you have kids, what a place for education. Wish I had something like it when I was in school. Bottom line, spend that $3.99 and enjoy CuriosityStream.

    CuriosityStream is my favorite service. Much better than highly sensationalized history and science channels.
