NASA launches channel for Roku

NASA have launched a channel for Roku digital media streaming devices, providing free access NASA content. This channel, a version of the NASA app, is similar to previous versions of the app developed for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV devices.

Users have downloaded the NASA app more than 18 million times across all platforms.

We want NASA to be available across a range of devices and news and entertainment sources. 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.
— Bob Jacobs, Acting Associate Administrator for Communications
