HISTORY Vault is a streaming service from The HISTORY Channel that delivers some of the cable channel’s best-known series and documentaries. It is a separate paid service than the free HISTORY app and gives you access to content you don’t normally see on the HISTORY Channel prime-time lineup.

This includes long-form documentaries and docu-series such as “America: The Story of Us,” “Ancient Discoveries,” and “Mysteries of the Bible.”

The subscription is $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year and you get access to the entire library and it’s ad-free.
