The next-generation cable provider is expanding its library of OTT content and 4K fare with the addition of world-class documentary features and series from the founder of Discovery Channel.
Denver, CO – Layer3 TV’s subscribers now have access to CuriosityStream, the award-winning destination where viewers can journey through our world and beyond with some of the most compelling documentaries in modern filmography. Through the CuriosityStream app on the Layer3 TV platform, Layer3 TV subscribers can view content from some of the world’s best filmmakers and engage with an unparalleled, immersive viewing experience that entertains and inspires. This integration adds to Layer3 TV’s robust app portfolio that users can enjoy through their integrated television experience.
The addition of CuriosityStream brings over 1,500 titles to the Layer3 TV library, including titles such as David Attenborough’s Light On Earth, Deep Time History and the Emmy-winning Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places, and the addition of 4K content in the coming weeks. Whether exploring Mars, traveling back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the planet, or discovering the secrets behind the science of nutrition, CuriosityStream adds new binge-worthy content each week, empowering viewers to dive deep into their interests.
Those who subscribe to CuriosityStream’s higher tiers of service will have access to its premier library of 4K content, including best-in-class documentary features and series exploring science, space, technology, history, health, nature and more. In addition, The New Cable® plans to incorporate more of the free content into its traditional On Demand curations.
“Layer3 TV is uniquely positioned within the industry to make the most of CuriosityStream’s groundbreaking content because of our industry-leading 4K Set-Top Box technology,” said Layer3 TV CEO Jeff Binder. “Our subscribers have demonstrated a voracious appetite for compelling documentaries and are seeking more 4K programs. Our addition of CuriosityStream — especially with its illuminating original 4K content — satisfies both of these subscriber demands.”
CuriosityStream is the brainchild of cable industry visionary and Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, and the service is rooted in Hendricks’ decades of experience pioneering nonfiction television. “Layer3 TV is a game-changer in the pay TV market with its innovative technology and its commitment to delivering high-quality, great entertainment as seamlessly as possible,” said Hendricks. “CuriosityStream shares that same commitment, and we are thrilled that Layer3 TV subscribers now have direct access to the entire CuriosityStream library, to fuel their passions in science, technology, and history with shows that are difficult to find on traditional channels.”
The app will deliver a mix of free previews and paid content, with subscription plans starting at $2.99 per month. Layer3 TV is currently available in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., Dallas/Ft. Worth – as well in Denver, where the company’s headquarters is located.
