About this app

The Companion brings you exclusive deep-dives, long reads and untold stories from creators, experts and journalists. Part magazine, part 'making of' companion, part DVD extras. We also include podcasts and documentaries, all packaged in a premium app experience.

The Companion offers members the chance to go further into their favourite TV shows and films. No click-bait. No ads. Instead, you can dive into long-reads, podcasts and video documentaries created by a team that shares your passion for these landmark game-changers and cult classics.

Sci-fi is more popular than ever and its fans deserve a premium quality home for behind the scenes tales, expert analysis and never before seen material. Our contributors are showrunners, authors, scientists and an incredible line-up of journalists, all given the chance to tell the story they’ve been dying to tell. With genuine passion combined by expert writing and contributions from the people who were there, The Companion isn’t here to supplement the experience, we’re here to enhance the experience.

There are comprehensive production histories, interviews with cast and crew, and new perspectives, but The Companion is more than a home for writers looking back, it’s about keeping these stories alive.

- New interviews with the minds behind Stargate, Star Trek, The X-Files and more

Love the content, but that piddly little "Transistor" player is impossible to use. I complained about it before - Hence one star. What happened to podcasts playing in the full size player? Transistor player losses its position, the scroll bar is too small to scroll to any precise position (like where you left off), you can't scroll back to the beginning due to the size, you can't read the time. Can we have a podcast player that's actually usable please? Great content needs a great player.

Great content, awesome community, easy to use app. I just had to cancel my subscription for financial reasons and it was SO easy to do. Thank you for not making me jump through hoops! I'll be back when I get my footing!

Thoughtful articles, wonderful deep dives into science fiction, and a comfortable, responsive app to bring it to life.
