Planet Earth is now available for streaming on Netflix. This is a big deal for lovers of the Earth and it becomes available on the most fitting day, of course, Earth Day.
If you heard about the series years ago but never had the ability to watch it, then now is your chance. Planet Earth is a series that showcases different parts of the world and shows viewers its natural beauty.
Shows will go on for years and never get seen and often Netflix is that tool that will help people finally get hooked. It is quickly becoming the most popular way to watch TV and in addition to streaming shows from many other networks, it has even earned some awards for its own programming.
Planet Earth will celebrate Earth Day in a great way and likely earn lots of new fans along the way. The nature series was narrated by Sir David Attenborough, debuting in 2006. Sigourney Weaver served as the narrator for the US version of the show.
The series earned four Primetime Emmy Awards and was even called TV’s most moving work of eco-tainment yet by Time Magazine after it debuted on the BBC network. It had 11 parts and took 5 years to make, groundbreaking material at the time as well with it being the first nature documentary series to be filmed in high definition.
In addition to Planet Earth, a handful of other nature documentaries will be available for streaming as of this year’s Earth Day. Environmentalists and animal lovers with Netflix access will certainly be in for a treat as Blue Planet, Bears: Spy In The Woods and Life will all be available as well.
