NASA will launch its own streaming service later this year, the US space agency said Thursday.
The service, called NASA Plus, will live stream NASA missions. It will also feature original video series, including new shows produced for the streaming service.
It will launch later this summer, says the NASA Plus trailer. According to the trailer, the titles of some of the series and channels will be NASA Talks, Space Out, The Color of Space, NASA Kids, NASA Explorers, WEBB Space Telescope, First Light, NASA En Español, Lucy, Mars Is Hard, NASA Explorers: Osiris Rex and Artemis I: Path to the Pad.
“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,” said Marc Etkind, associate administrator for the agency’s Office of Communications.
NASA Plus will be free and have no ads. It will be on streaming media players, including Apple TV, Fire TV and Roku, as well as on the iOS and Android NASA app and on desktop.
NASA also said an update to its website and app is on the way. “This new web experience will serve as an ever-expanding yet consolidated home base for information about the agency’s missions and research, climate data, Artemis updates and more,” NASA said in a blog post. You can see beta version of the new website here.
