Expanding its pool of integrated streaming partners, fact-based SVOD service CuriosityStream is now available on certain Vizio SmartCast TV models.

The service, created by Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, is first rolling out its app to 2016 and 2017 Vizio SmartCast P-, M- and E- Series Ultra HD models.

“Ease of use is a key reason viewers are gravitating to smart TVs, and the Vizio SmartCast TV platform excels at giving consumers direct access to the entertainment they want, all in one place,” said Clint Stinchcomb, chief distribution officer for CuriosityStream. “We are thrilled to have CuriosityStream’s library of incredible documentaries and shows ready for Vizio users to discover and watch.”

The Vizio deal is the latest addition to the host of streaming platforms that CuriosityStream is available on. The service can also be accessed on Roku, Apple TV, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, iOS and Android mobile devices, and smart TVs from Sony, LG and Samsung.

In addition, CuriosityStream has been inking distribution deals with MVPDs, starting with Comcast last November, as well as T-Mobile’s Layer3 TV. The service also has deals with Amazon Channels, Sling TV and VRV. 

For its stand-alone OTT offering, CuriosityStream is available in three different service tiers that start at $2.99 per month for basic, $5.99 for HD-supported standard tier, and $11.99 per month for its premium tier, which offers access to the service’s 4K library.
