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.
