Highlights
  • CuriosityStream TV channel launched for Airtel Digital TV users for free
  • It is available now on channel 419 on Airtel Digital TV
  • CuriosityStream and Airtel got into a partnership in November last year

Airtel has announced that its Digital TV users will now get premium content from CuriosityStream for the first time. CuriosityStream is home to documentary films and series. This announcement takes the partnership between Airtel and CuriosityStream, which started in November last year, one step further. CuriosityStream TV channel will be exclusive to Airtel and will be offered at no extra cost to Airtel Digital TV subscribers. It will come with the complete library of CuriosityStream that includes popular titles like Stephen Hawking's Favorite Places and Age of Big Cats.

According to a press release, CuriosityStream has been launched as “an exclusive Free to Airtel channel” with all the content that CuriosityStream has to offer.

“CuriosityStream lets viewers explore their passions and discover new ones with thousands of films and series covering space, art, volcanoes, history, travel, cars, architecture, dinosaurs and so much more,” the press release states.

The service will be available to more than 16.5 million customers of Airtel Digital TV who can watch it on channel number 419 on their set-top box.

CuriosityStream was first launched on Airtel's XStream app and website. Building on the success of CuriosityStream on those platforms, both the service and Airtel have strengthened their partnership with this launch on Airtel Digital TV.

Some of the titles that will be available to Airtel Digital TV users on the CuriosityStream TV channel include ‘Breakthrough' – which has a series on coronavirus, Butterfly Effect: Gandhi-The Force of Willpower, David Attenborough's Light on Earth, and Asia's Monarchies: Nepal, among others.

CuriosityStream is a streaming service started by John S. Hendricks, the founder of Discovery Channel. It first made an appearance in 2015 as a dedicated non-fiction and factual content streaming platform. It cost $3 (roughly Rs. 220) a month for standard resolution and $6 (roughly Rs. 450) a month for high-definition. A 4K plan was launched later at $9 (roughly Rs. 680) a month.
