Kidstream joins Curiosity's Smart Bundle.

Anchored by Curiosity Stream’s award-winning documentary films, series, and specials, the Smart Bundle offers seven streaming services at a discounted rate. Each service in the bundle was carefully selected, with the common thread being a dedication to entertainment that inspires learning, exploration, and expanding viewers’ horizons.

“Kidstream brings the biggest children’s shows together in one place, but that’s only part of the reason we love it,” said John Higgins, Director of Content Partnerships at Curiosity. “Kidstream’s vision of creating an oasis where parents don’t have to worry about kids being served advertisements and suggestions to view inappropriate content is inspiring and a great example of what the Smart Bundle is all about.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Curiosity Stream and join their exceptional, enriching Smart Bundle offering,” said Dean Koocher, Co-Founder of Kidstream. “For families that appreciate high-quality, thoughtful programming that brings learning, adventure, and inspiration without the hassle of advertising, the Smart Bundle really is the perfect solution, and we are delighted to now be a part of it.”

Kidstream was founded in 2017 by two executives, Dean Koocher and Jordan Jedeikin, who, with 45 years combined experience, have helped launch and grow hit shows such as Teletubbies, LazyTown, and Book Hungry Bears. The company relentlessly pursues the best available content for families, using five core principles: shows must be safe, enriching, well-produced, highly entertaining, and at the catalog-level include a diverse set of characters and formats.

Kidstream contains hundreds of hours of programming including classic shows like Barney, LazyTown, The Wiggles, and Thomas & Friends, as well as newer hits such as Sid the Science Kid, Kate & Mim-Mim, and many US-premieres like The Sound Collector, narrated by Keira Knightly, which launches later this Spring.

Kidstream is available as a standalone service on major channel stores like Roku, Prime Video, Xfinity, Apple TV, and more.

In addition to Kidstream, the Smart Bundle includes:

  • Curiosity Stream, the home for films, series, and specials exploring history, science, nature, adventure, lifestyle, and more.
  • Tastemade+, award-winning food, travel, and home & design series and documentaries.
  • SOMM TV, dedicated to the world of wine, food, travel, and hospitality, from the creators of the blockbuster “SOMM” film series.
  • Topic, exclusive, critically acclaimed, and award-winning crime, thrillers, drama, and noir from around the world.
  • Da Vinci, thousands of award-winning educational TV shows and interactive activities, inspiring kids to create a smarter, kinder world.
  • Curiosity University, the most noteworthy and popular lectures from professors at the world’s top universities, plus courses, podcasts, and more.

Full access to the Smart Bundle is offered at $69.99 annually.
