If you can't get enough history documentaries, books, and podcasts in your life, you can get access to a vast library of unique content with a subscription to History Hit TV. Like any of the major streaming services, History Hit TV features shows and specials you can watch anytime, anywhere, on whatever device you prefer—and its entire library is curated to satisfy any type of history buff.

History Hit TV breaks its content down into seven categories: Ancient and Classical, Middle Ages, Early Modern, Age of Revolution, Victorian, 20th Century, and the Information Age. Within these time periods, you can learn about everything from the Silk Road and Roman Empire, all the way through World War II and our modern digital age. In between learning about global events, you'll also find shows about important individuals and locations, like Jane Austen, Jack the Ripper, and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

The library itself started with a podcast from Dan Snow, one of the UK’s best-known television hosts. He’s grown that podcast into a subscription-based service where history enthusiasts can access anything from films to podcasts, all in one place. The library is updated and expanded upon every week, so you'll always have something new to watch.

History Hit TV offers three subscription options, all of which are currently on sale: You can get a one-year subscription to for $39.99, two years for $49.99, or three years for $59.99.

Price subject to change.

Beetlejuice Sandworm Mood Light Is the Perfect Spooky Home Accessory

This Beetlejuice-themed mood light might not be the most comforting thing to see before bed, but it is guaranteed to look cool on your nightstand. It's designed to resemble the movie's iconic sandworms, making it a must-have collector's item for any Beetlejuice fan.

When the sandworms appear in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice (1988), the tone shifts from spooky comedy to straight horror. This mood lamp from Toynk is a pint-sized replica of the trippy creatures. It stands six inches tall, making it the perfect decoration for a desk, shelf, or bedside table.

When it's turned off, the sandworm lamp looks like a normal piece of movie memorabilia. Switch it on and watch the battery-powered LED light illuminate the sandworm's mouth (or mouths), providing subtle mood-lighting to your home.

The Beetlejuice sandworm LED mood light is now available from Toynk for $20. For more ways to make your home spookier this Halloween, check out these products.
