deGrasse Tyson’s Subscription Service

Science celeb Neil deGrasse Tyson now has his own subscription streaming service. For $4.99/month, or an annual subscription of $49.90, StarTalk All-Access subscribers are promised ad-free on-demand access to “hundreds of podcasts and videos.” Specifically excluded, though, are “episodes that first aired as StarTalk on The National Geographic Channel.” all-access-logo-600px

So, excluding those 20+ hours (the show is now in its third cable season), what do StarTalk All-Access subscribers get?

  • Lots of audio: the StarTalk Radio podcast, hosted by Tyson, and the StarTalk All-Stars podcast, featuring several rotating hosts including Bill Nye the Science Guy;
  • Video versions of all new podcasts as they’re produced;
  • Live streams of StarTalk Live! – Tyson’s in-person stage show;
  • “Exclusive original programming” — ‘behind-the-scenes footage at StarTalk including script review sessions with Tyson, outtakes and banter, and other original content available only on StarTalk All-Access.

The service is available on the web or via Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku. For more information, or to subscribe, visit

By the way, if you want to stream the StarTalk TV series, you can catch all 10 episodes from season two for free (with ads) on Yahoo View – or the 10 episodes from season one, ad-free, if you have a Netflix or Hulu subscription.
