National Geographic started as a magazine, which was launched in 1888. After 113 year of circulation, National Geographic ventured into the television platform by launching the National Geographic Channel. This is a pay to watch cable channel that features documentaries, scientific programs, and other socially related programs. National Geographic later dropped the “Channel” part of its name, and rebranded as “National Geographic.” Some notable programs shown by National Geographic includes the biopic series entitled “Genius,” the reality series “Dog Whisperer” and more. National Geographic has many sister channels, like Nat Geo Wild which focuses on animal programs and Nat Geo People, which is more of the travel and social programming channel. Since the channel is pay to watch, it is generally impossible for anyone who is not subscribed to any cable provider to watch it. However, there is a way to watch these programs, and that is to download National Geographic videos. Read on to learn about the ways to download Nat Geo videos below.
