NASA has launched its new free and ad-free streaming service, NASA+, that offers access to live content and new series worldwide on Apple TV, FireTV and Roku.
The plans were announced in August and NASA+ is available starting this week via an app update for the existing NASA app.
"We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform," Marc Etkind, associate administrator, Office of Communications at NASA, said in August. "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."
The US space agency confirmed that NASA+ is available worldwide for free without ads. It is described as family-friendly.
At launch, NASA+ can be watched through Apple TV, Fire TV and Roku as well as iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices. In addition, you can access it via a webbrowser on The new Nasa app with NASA+nasa.gov/plus.
