A new free streaming TV service has launched for those who love to watch documentaries.

Documentary+ offers access to feature-length and short documentary films. You can stream the service on platforms such as Apple TV, Amazon, Roku and mobile devices.

The service promises everything from “Academy Award-winners to festival darlings.”

According to a company announcement:

“The library includes classics like The Imposter, Born into Brothels, Cartel Land, My Best Fiend, and Life, Animated, and features pop culture icons like Michael Jordan (One Man and His Shoes), Christian Dior (Dior and I), Evel Knievel (Being Evel), Janis Joplin (Festival Express), and Pearl Jam (Hype!) alongside important political and historical figures like Cory Booker (Street Fight), Elian Gonzalez (Elian), and Neil Armstrong (Armstrong).”

Documentaries from award-winning and award-nominated filmmakers — such as Spike Jonze, Kathryn Bigelow and Terrence Malick — are featured, as are works from rising stars.

The service plans to use the 2021 Sundance Film Festival to add more content to its library.

Documentary+ is just the latest free streaming service to emerge. If you’re looking for other free streaming options, check out “15 Free Streaming Services to Watch While Stuck at Home.”

Free services are great for some folks, but your choice of viewing options typically remains limited. So, you might want to check into other options that you pay for. A few of the best affordable options are:

  • Sling TV: Offers two plans — Sling Orange and Sling Blue — each priced at $35 monthly.
  • Philo: Offers more than 60 channels for $20 a month.
  • Hulu: Offers access to thousands of shows and movies beginning at $5.99 a month.
