NASA, the United States' space agency, has announced its plans to introduce a new streaming service called NASA+ later this year. This ad-free and cost-free platform will grant users access to live coverage of upcoming launches, documentaries, and exclusive original series that focus on space exploration and innovation.
The streaming service will be available through the NASA app on iOS and Android devices, as well as popular streaming media players like Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV. Users can also access NASA+ via the web on the agency's new beta website, which aims to provide a consolidated hub for information about NASA's missions, research, climate data, Artemis updates, and more. The revamped websites, nasa.gov and science.nasa.gov, will offer a cohesive, topic-driven experience with integrated navigation and a common search engine.
By launching NASA+, the agency aims to provide a dedicated space for viewers to access its captivating content beyond its existing NASA TV platform. This move is part of NASA's broader initiative to modernize its digital presence and make its vast array of information more accessible and user-friendly.
