NASA has launched its own channel on the Roku platform.
The NASA app includes a live stream of NASA Television, real-time views of Earth from the International Space Station and popular NASA vodcasts.
The free channel is a version of the NASA app, and is similar to previous versions of the app developed for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV devices. The NASA app has been downloaded more than 18 million times across all platforms.
“We want NASA to be available across a range of devices and news and entertainment sources,” said Bob Jacobs, acting associate administrator for communications at the NASA’s headquarters in Washington. “This broadens the places where users can stream NASA’s on-demand content and watch live launches and activities in space — right on their televisions.”
