It's also worth pointing out that Nebula uses algorithms that reward videos that are easy to click on, easy to watch, and easy to share. As such, the more content you watch, the more support you show for independent creators!

The more you know

When you sign up for a Nebula account, you're automatically gifted a seven-day free trial. You'll be charged the monthly fee when the free week is up.

Once you've downloaded and logged into the Nebula app, you'll be able to Browse content under the following categories: Animation, Explainers, Film & TV, Gaming, History, Music, Originals, Science & Engineering, Technology, and Writing. You'll also be able to check out the Featured tab, which compiles some of the most recent videos shared on the platform. Once you start following specific creators within the Nebula app, their latest video contributions are saved under your profile's My Shows tab.

One of the biggest perks of the Nebula streaming service is its lineup of Nebula Originals, which span all topics and includes exclusive series like Making Philosophy Tube, Working Titles, MinuteBody, Technorama, Story Mode, and The New F Word. In addition, nebula also doubles as a podcast platform with various audio podcasts hosted mainly by the same creators as its video content.
