NASA is embarking on a new journey with “NASA Plus” streaming service

Get ready for an exciting leap into the streaming-verse as NASA is all set to launch its very own on-demand content platform called “NASA Plus,” Gizmodo reported. The federal space agency promises to bring thrilling non-sci-fi space content right to your TVs and mobile devices, and the best part is, it will be “ad-free, no cost, and family-friendly.”

The eagerly anticipated streaming service will offer a diverse range of content, including live coverage of future launches, captivating documentaries, and exclusive original series, all centered around the wonders of space.

Marc Etkind, NASA’s associate administrator of communications, expressed the agency’s enthusiasm, stating, “We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform. 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.”

NASA Plus, or NASA+, will be accessible through the NASA app on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices, as well as popular streaming media players like Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV. Additionally, space enthusiasts can enjoy the service on the web through NASA’s new beta website, which will host a wealth of information about the agency’s missions, research, climate data, and exciting updates on the Artemis program.

To enhance user experience, NASA is revamping its nasa.gov and science.nasa.gov websites, creating a topic-driven approach with a user-friendly search engine and integrated navigation.

Currently, NASA uses NASA TV to broadcast its video content and launch streams on both its website and YouTube. However, the launch of NASA Plus marks a significant step as the agency ventures into creating a dedicated space for viewers to access its content.

Jeff Seaton, NASA CIO, emphasizes that this move is all about modernization and making NASA’s valuable information more accessible, discoverable, and secure for the public. As the details of the streaming service remain a mystery, it is likely to feature a user-friendly interface, aligning with the familiarity of other popular streaming platforms.

With “NASA Plus” on the horizon, space enthusiasts and curious minds alike will have an exciting new avenue to explore the wonders of the cosmos, brought to you directly by the pioneers of space exploration themselves.
