NASA is set to launch its very own streaming platform, NASA+, where viewers can access a range of free content, including live streams of the space agency's missions. The platform will also feature original programming, such as series centered around NASA's missions.
Unlike other streaming services, NASA+ will not require users to subscribe or subject them to advertisements. The streaming platform will be available on various devices, including iOS, Android, and Apple TV. As of now, users can access the beta version, and NASA encourages everyone interested to provide feedback. The official release is planned for this summer.
The space agency announced the launch of its streaming platform as part of its updated digital presence strategy.
"Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience," said Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. NASA+ will offer comprehensive information about the agency's missions and research, climate data, promotional videos, and more.
Additionally, NASA is modernizing most of its web services this year. The agency is currently working on updating its website and mobile application to consolidate information about its divisions, missions, and research projects. The revamped version of the website is already available in the testing phase.
