NASA has decided not to be left behind by the trend of so many other companies and cultural projects and will also have its own streaming channel. On this channel, it will show videos of its launches and scientific advances, which tend to get a lot of attention on the internet. Now, instead of just becoming viral videos that circulate on social networks, these videos can be watched at any time through their new platform.
What the NASA platform is called?
The website will be called NASA+, like Disney+ or Star+. It will be open to people all over the world by the end of this year, 2023.
NASA Plus will also be available on Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV, as well as on the web and on a computer.
How much the service costs
NASA has chosen to start this service for free and without ads, which is great since one of its goals is to spread science to people who don’t always have access to streaming platforms. payment. It’s also a very interesting decision because it comes in the wake of the recent Netflix controversy, in which the company decided to charge extra for users with multiple screens who live in different homes. This caused a big drop in the number of people who subscribe to Netflix, and it could mean a change in how these kinds of services are run.
NASA has said that the fact that its service is free and doesn’t have ads doesn’t mean that it won’t be good, and that users can expect to see videos that haven’t been seen by the public before. Aside from being exclusive, the material on NASA plus is meant to be inspiring and moving.
The goal of this site, according to NASA’s Chief Information Officer Jeff Seaton, is to “inspire humanity through a unified experience.” The first step toward making our agency information easier to find is to improve how people use our material.
Content from NASA Plus
NASA’s website already has more than 19,000 images and movies that can be looked at for free. On its streaming platform, these will be released in the same way, but they will also include documentaries, series, and educational material about how the US government organization works and does research. Nicky Fox, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, has said this about the topics covered in NASA Plus: “From exoplanet research to a better understanding of Earth’s climate and how the Sun affects our planet, to the exploration of the solar system.”
NASA Plus Launch
For now, a closed beta version of NASA Plus can be tried on their website. We will have to wait until the end of this year before everyone can use it.
