StarHub First in Southeast Asia to Spark Customers’ Interest with Curiosity Stream
- Curiosity Stream is the tenth fully integrated streaming app on StarHub TV+
SINGAPORE — Etching a market-leading deal today, StarHub took its place as the first entertainment service provider in Southeast Asia to offer its customers access to Curiosity’s streaming service, Curiosity Stream. Featuring thousands of original and curated documentaries appealing to nature lovers, history buffs, and tech enthusiasts alike, Curiosity Stream will be made available to all customers with an Entertainment+ Pass at no extra cost (Usual price: S$13.98 per month), in glorious 4K UHD. Coming shortly after StarHub unveiled its DARE+ strategy, the Curiosity Stream app is the tenth Over-the-top (OTT) partnership on StarHub TV+ and marks the company’s next step in bringing the best entertainment options to customers seamlessly.
No matter which broadband or mobile service operator they are with, Entertainment+ subscribers on StarHub can simply log in to the TV+ app and access their favourite programmes across any screen – from laptops to tablets and mobile phones. On the app, they will have instant access to a treasure trove of the freshest documentaries available on Curiosity Stream, including the rousing miniseries on marine life The Humboldt Current; gripping tell-all Royals: Keeping the Crown; and thought-provoking Evolve, produced by Beach House Pictures with support from Infocomm Media Development Authority’s (IMDA) enhanced Capability Partnership Programme.

This continues the successful integration of other top-tier OTT platforms such as Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, and Netflix. With access to National Geographic via Disney+, and now Curiosity, StarHub is the best place for documentary fans, bringing a smorgasbord of award-winning and awe-inspiring documentaries and films straight to their fingertips.”
