App is basically unusable. Autoplay has never worked and still doesn't. Allows background play and pictute-in-picture, but if you use these settings, the app will close after about 5 minutes on its own. Its been this way for a while. What exactly is curiosity stream doing with the massive $35 price increase from last year to this year? As I write this, it literally shut down again because I listened for about two minutes without having the screen on. $50 a year for this garbage? I want a refund

I originally had the curiosity stream/nebula bundle for $14 a year. I didn't realize when it auto renewed I'd lose the nebula subscription and get charged $40. Not worth it without nebula, the curiosity stream app is buggy and half the documentaries on it are unscientific religious or conspiracy garbage. And customer service never responded to any emails.

I've had curiosity stream for years now, but I've just received an email stating that my subscription would go from "$19.99/year to $39.99/year starting on March 21, 2024". I'll be canceling on March 20th, 2024, and I'm setting a reminder on my phone so I don't forget. To think you can literally double the cost is absurd and insulting. 40 per year is far too excessive for an app I barely use and even if I did, it's too much. Goodbye Curiosity Stream.
