Spanning genres including history, air and space, nature and wildlife, science, travel, pop culture and more, the programming, which includes 4K UHD series and documentaries, is now available anytime and anywhere in the US at $4.99 per month.
Smithsonian Networks is expanding in the streaming space with a direct-to-consumer offering that allows streamers access to its diverse and entertaining nonfiction programming.

The new service also includes all of Smithsonian Earth’s nature and wildlife offerings, all in 4K UHD.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring Smithsonian Channel’s acclaimed programming to new audiences in an easily accessible way at a time when viewing habits and consumption are rapidly changing,” said Tom Hayden, President, Smithsonian Networks.
“With a deep and varied programming library, including one of the largest offerings of 4K UHD content, launching Smithsonian Channel Plus allows us to super-serve viewers who love documentaries and series across a wide variety of genres.”
