If the selections in your Netflix queue have gotten a bit tame lately, a new streaming service dedicated to adventure films could provide a much-needed jolt.
Curated by a group of outdoor enthusiasts who have been collecting movies, shows and shorts that aren’t available on other streaming sites, Slipstream features hundreds of pieces of content sorted into categories like “Intense Climbing Journeys” and “Inspiration To Escape.” Priced at just $5 a month, Slipstream adds new content each week and says it will send 70 percent of its monthly revenues back to filmmakers so they can continue to create good work.
Slipstream is currently offering a free month of service, so here’s a brief guide of what to watch.
