Editors’ Notes

We’re rather partial to our planet, and not just because it’s the only one we’ve got. Smithsonian Earth takes us to corners of the world we didn’t know existed, with stunning documentaries and short films about exotic animals, fragile ecosystems, and much more. We’re continually delighted by the blend of astounding filmmaking and deep knowledge, inspired by Smithsonian’s renowned museums.

Beautiful Documentaries


These documentaries look absolutely stunning on my Apple TV4K. My ONLY complaint is I would LOVE if you’d integrate it with the “TV” app and “Up Next” on iOS and tvOS. But other than that it’s such a great app and such great content!

Developer Response

Thank you for taking the time to provide this great feedback! We have passed your feature requests on​to the appropriate parties within our organization. Thanks for watching Smithsonian Earth!

Renewed and still disappointed


Came back to renew and still disappointed. Renewed only to find he same old content on the app and the same old lack of frequency of uploads. NOT worth $3.99 a month. BIGGEST ripoff. If you want a great deal get Any tv or satellite provider and sign into NatGeo/Wild TV app with your info on any device. Screw this piece of overpriced garbage.
