NASA’s new on-demand streaming service and upgraded app are now available to the public, ushering in a new world of original content from the space agency for the benefit of all. These new digital platforms are the landing place of original video series, live launch coverage, kids’ content, Spanish-language programming and the latest news as NASA continues to improve life on Earth through innovation, exploration and discovery.
“NASA is a leader in the federal government for creating inspirational content that meets people where they are,” said NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy. “I am excited we have created a powerful trifecta with the recently revamped NASA website, the launch of NASA+, and the updated NASA App that showcases the many benefits our data can have for all humanity.”
These platforms are part of an effort to ensure agency content is more accessible, discoverable and secure for the public.
“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.
No Cost Access
Through the ad-free, no-cost and family-friendly streaming service, users can access the agency’s Emmy Award winning live coverage and views of NASA’s missions through collections of original video series. NASA+ will also stream live event coverage, where people everywhere can watch in real-time as the agency launches science experiments and astronauts to space, and ultimately, the first woman and person of color to the Moon.
Universe at Your Fingertips
The app includes over 21,000 images, podcasts, news, feature stories and live event coverage. New updates offer full access to on-demand streaming with NASA+, cloud push notifications, International Space Station sightings and notifications, the ability to rate and share photos and augmented reality that allows users to view, rotate and enlarge 3D models of NASA rockets, spacecraft and rovers.
Both the app and the streaming service are available to download on most major platforms. The content can also be streamed at plus.nasa.gov.
