iwonder offers lockdown discount

Doco streaming platform offers monthly / annual discount for lockdown-affected areas.

Documentary streaming platform iwonder has announced a discount for new subscribers in lockdown affected areas, if they sign up while under stay-at-home restrictions.

Instead of $6.99 per month or $69.99 for an annual subscription, new subscribers who live in an area currently under isolation orders, will be able to sign up for $3.50 per month or $34.50 for a year.

iwonder CEO, James Bridges, says of the decision: “As we continue to live with the spectre of COVID, at iwonder we’re keen to do whatever we can to make life under lockdown that little bit more bearable. So many TV fans are tired of endless scrolling just to land back on the same drama or comedy box set, which is why we hope to give jaded people stuck at home a chance to make a little something more of their time indoors by diving deeper into the world around them.”

With access to the service comes iwonder’s extensive library of over 1,000 documentaries and factual films, including fan favourites from many of the world’s most prestigious film festivals, including Cannes, Sundance and Hot Docs. Current highlights available to stream today, include
