Your choice of streaming services has just expanded thanks to NASA’s new streaming channel. Assuming no last minute glitches on the launch pad, NASA+ launches today and, happily, doesn't come with any monthly fees or commercials.
The advert free on-demand platform will be available via the NASA App on iOS and Android devices, web browsers, as well as through Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV. The ever-expanding catalog will include live coverage of launch events and missions, original videos, and multiple new series.
And you don't need to be a space geek to enjoy NASA's output. For those looking to just bask in cosmic majesty, Space Out will allow viewers to do just that alongside “relaxing music and ultra-high-definition visuals of the cosmos, from the surface of Mars to a Uranian sunset.”
“We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform,” Marc Etkind of NASA said earlier this year. “Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity.”
Other content available at launch includes Other Worlds, focusing on the latest updates and news from the James Webb Space Telescope program. It will no doubt come with some of the most spectacular glimpses of space ever achieved.
NASA Explorers will offer viewers a multi-episode look at the agency’s recently concluded, seven-year OSIRIS-REx mission. Completed in September, OSIRIS-REx successfully returned samples collected in space from Bennu, a 4.5 billion-year-old asteroid traveling across the cosmos since the dawn of the solar system.
