In an effort to cut the cord, VRV has become an increasingly attractive alternative. Though it currently boasts a healthy dose of options for fans of animation (like yours truly), a VRV subscription also includes Shudder for horror aficionados and a number of nerd-focused franchises. Now, the online streaming content provided is adding two new partners to further increase their diverse portfolio.

Starting today, VRV subscribers will gain access to all of the content available on CuriosityStream and MUBI as it rolls out throughout the day. Science and history buffs can get their fix of award-winning documentaries through CuriosityStream, and cinema lovers can watch MUBI’s catalogue of cult, classic, independent, and award-winning films from around the world – MUBI releases one new film per day, each available for 30 days.

Today, VRV is also rolling out offline viewing just in time for binging over the Thanksgiving holiday! We’ve got a sampling of the new additions to VRV and what they offer below, so check them out:
