If you’ve got plenty of extra time on your hands these days due to staying quarantined, it’s totally understandable if you’re bingeing reruns of your favorite TV shows to help keep your spirits lifted. But if you want to spend some of that couch time learning about new things you’ve always found interesting, MagellanTV has got you covered. The streaming service is offering its full collection of documentaries free for 30 days—with more than 2,000 options available, you’re sure to find something for every member of your family.

With a dizzying array of docs in history, science, nature, crime, and more, you can become the expert of any topic of your choosing. The MagellanTV team is also providing curated family-friendly playlists, from “Breaking Barriers: Women in History” to “Lives of the Pharaohs,” with commentary from top historians, scientists, and explorers in each doc. 

New titles are added weekly, so you can spend the rest of your time in quarantine doing a deep dive into anything you’re curious about. MagellanTV is available on mobile, desktop, Roku, Amazon Fire, and AppleTV.

Plans range from $4.99 per month to $6.99 per month, so it’s pretty reasonable even after your free 30 days are up. The free trial offer is good through May 15th, so check out MagellanTV’s extensive collection of documentaries while you’re home for the foreseeable future.
