This New Streaming Platform Has Documentaries on Politics, History + More
(SPOT.ph) With your busy schedule, it's convenient to be able to watch whenever you want. But then, when you don't know exactly what you're looking for, diving head-first into a streaming platform can feel overwhelming. If documentaries and current events are your thing, iwonder might be right up your alley. This new streaming service just launched today, September 23, and it's where you'll find a wide selection of documentaries and current affairs programs.
Feel free to search for any topic you're interested in—iwonder has a number of shows, programs, short films, and documentaries that discuss music, art, politics, climate change, history, technology, culture, sports, and more.
Like any streaming platform, you can watch and come back whenever you feel like it, but iwonder adds another layer to your watching experience: the platform provides news articles that discuss timely and relevant topics. The platform then curates programs based on the article. If the day's article is about environmental protection and social media, iwonder will recommend programs that focus on that to help you know more about the topic.
They also carry platform-exclusive content that delve deep into issues and controversies, like The Kleptocrats, a critically acclaimed film that investigates the multi-billion dollar scandal that funded Leonardo DiCaprio's film Wolf of Wall Street and inspired the book Billion Dollar Whale.
Filipino narratives also get space on the platform. Children of the Sex Trade, a documentary shot in Subic, follows two Filipino sisters helping former Australia police and special forces officers rescue underage girls from performing paid sexual acts in bars.
iwonder also carries award-winning and critically acclaimed documentaries and series like IRIS, an Emmy-nominated film about design legend Iris Apfel.
You can opt for a monthly subscription (U.S.$4.99; roughly P240.46), or subscribe for an entire year (U.S.$49.90; roughly P2,602.31). As of writing, you can watch and register on their website, or download the app on the Google Play Store.
