NASA’s latest digital initiative is a new streaming service called NASA+. The space agency has opened up a portal to a world of original content. The platforms offer a diverse range of programming, including original video series, live launch coverage in real-time, and engaging content for kids. The platform also offers Spanish-language programming and the latest news from NASA’s ongoing missions.
NASA+, an on-demand streaming service can be easily downloaded via the NASA App on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices. It is also accessible on popular streaming media players such as Roku and Apple TV. In addition, content can be accesed directly on NASA’s streaming portal.
“NASA’s new streaming platform and app are where the world can join us as we explore the unknown,” said Marc Etkind, associate administrator, Office of Communications, NASA Headquarters. “NASA is the catalyst behind some of humanity’s greatest stories; and now, with our new digital presence, everyone will have access to these stories 24/7” he added.
This new digital platform is part of a broader effort by the agency to make its content more accessible, discoverable, and secure for the public. Earlier this year, it introduced significant updates to its websites, including nasa.gov and science.nasa.gov.
These revamped sites now serve as a central hub for a wealth of information, from cutting-edge research and climate data to the latest updates on the Artemis program, which aims to return humans to the Moon. NASA’s App, which has been downloaded over 30 million times has also received updates recently. The app has podcasts, news, feature stories and much more.
NASA+ AD Free Access
NASA+ will come at no cost to all users across the globe. In addition, the streaming service will be an ad-free platform. Despite this fact, the space agency promises users access to the agency’s Emmy Award-winning live coverage. Further, the platform will have unique content including brand-new series premiering on this platform. This is good news for many, especially at a time when YouTube is fighting Ad blockers.
