Curiosity Channel is now available through FreeCast’s Value Channels package. Formerly SelectTV, FreeCast is a distribution company and platform, and its Value Channels package is a paid upgrade.
For those unfamiliar with Curiosity Channel, it is best understood as the linear channel version of Curiosity Stream. As a result, the channel offers viewers a way to watch a variety of live programming, including films, series, and shows, that explore science, technology, history, nature, travel, and more.
With Curiosity Channel now available through FreeCast, fans of Curiosity Stream now have an additional option to consider. While FreeCast does offer access to plenty of free linear channels, its Value Channels package requires a paid subscription.
Basically, Value Channels cost $6.99 a month and unlocks access to a selection of paid channels, including AXS TV, INSP, Family Movie Classics (FMC), Reelz, WeatherNation, and now Curiosity Channel.
“Curiosity’s flagship channel is a fantastic addition to our Value Channels package. Our goal for that product has always been to offer high quality content at an affordable low price, and bringing this premium channel to the package is a perfect example of that,” said Tracy West, FreeCast’s Executive Vice President of Digital Content.
In addition to Curiosity Channel, FreeCast has also confirmed that Curiosity Now will become available to FreeCast users in the coming weeks. Considering Curiosity Now is Curiosity Stream’s free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channel, it is expected that this channel will be available through FreeCast’s free tier.
In August, FreeCast announced that it had partnered with the National Lifeline Association (NaLA) to trial the provision of free streaming TV to select NaLA members.
