Do you enjoy a good documentary from time to time? Check out our list of the best documentaries to watch on Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video.
As much as I love to binge watch entertaining shows and movies (and I do!), I also love a good documentary. I love how I can be entertained and learn something new at the same time.
I also love exposing our children to documentaries so they aren’t watching the same cartoons over and over again. Watching documentaries together is a great family activity.
We use documentaries to supplement our homeschool curriculum. So, over the years, both of the girls have really come to enjoy watching documentaries with us.
Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video and Disney+ make discovering new documentaries to watch so easy! There are always great documentaries that I’ve been wanting to watch and ones that I have never even heard of. It’s great! You can also find some interesting documentaries on YouTube.
If you haven’t watched the ones I’ve listed below, make sure to watch them while they’re available for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video or Disney+.
And if you’ve watched all of these documentaries and are looking for some new ones, be sure to check out CuriosityStream. It’s an entire streaming service dedicated to documentaries! It’s super affordable too at $2.99 per month or $19.99 per year.
