The Hollywood Reporter shared more on the exciting new offering.

The offer is launching ahead of Earth Day on April 22, with Nat Geo betting that it can drive new interest around the flurry of exclusive content on Disney+ that Nat Geo has planned, including docs like Explorer: The Last Tepui.

“It’s kind of like our Super Bowl,” says Julie Galvin VP of marketing at National Geographic Media.

The offer is meant to tie together the different strings of National Geographic, and let users read, watch, or otherwise consume Nat Geo content in the format most useful to them.

“We saw an opportunity to make it easier and more accessible to pull together the best of National Geographic. It gives people the opportunity to explore more topics when and how they want, but also just due to the depth and breadth of our content, really take a deep dive on topics that are interesting to them,“ Galvin says. “It is something that allows somebody who sees a show, maybe you watch a Nat Geo documentary on Disney+, and then dive a lot deeper online.”
