Binge on reality with this documentary streaming service

Let's face it. Binge-watching nothing but sitcoms and melodramas is like a stereotypical Chinese food buffet: You'll feel empty an hour later. Finally, there's a streaming service out there for those who like to come out of a show with something more than water cooler gossip. With over 2,000 documentary features and series, CuriosityStream might just be the channel to turn couch potatoes into something other than a vegetable.

Like most streaming services, sign up and you're free to watch on any device: Browser, app, TV or tablet. But there's a lot more depth to CuriosityStream's programming, in more ways than one. It's the brainchild of Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks, and as you might expect, the shows here are all geared toward learning. You'll find documentary series and features on everything from cuisine ("The History of Food") to history ("Pearl Harbor: Into the Arizona") to science ("Particle Fever"), including offerings by top minds like David Attenborough and Stephen Hawking.

Great taste, more filling, and it's currently on sale: A two-year subscription to CuriosityStream is 25% off at $29.99.
