New thread with updated links. The new sticky thread to replace the old thread (several years old).

------------------------------

NASA TV AND OTHER SPACE AGENCY LIVE VIDEO FEEDS

NASA

The main NASA page includes Public, Education, Media and HD ISS Views including the channel schedule. Check that page if any of these links stop working as most of the main one's are collected there.

Upcoming live events are listed here - http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/schedule.html

Further schedule information including episodes and series on terrestrial TV channels; Science Channel, Weather Channel, WETA PBS and more - ftp://ftp.hq.nasa.gov/pub/pao/tv-advisory/nasa-tv.txt

Also see "NASA-Related Programming on Other TV Channels" - http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/nasa_on_tv_schedule.html

FLASH vs EXTERNAL PLAYER

On the NASA TV main page the page does actually offer ".m3u8" (playlist) links for external players (Windows Media Player, VLC) but only if flash is not found.

The video is H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (h264), Audio Codec: MPEG AAC Audio (mp4a) @ 48000Hz @ Display resolution: 1280x720 (may vary) including Closed Captions.

Please note that the external player video links are only added to the buttons on the web page when Flash support in the browser or device is found to be unavailable. Disabling Flash using, for example, "Flash Block" in Firefox will not give the external player buttons, Flash has to be completely unavailable.

EXTERNAL PLAYER LINKS

OTHER VIEWING OPTIONS

NASA TV UHD "NASA TV UHD leverages the latest 4K Ultra HD technology to highlight beautiful imagery from the U.S. space program. Utilizing an end-to-end video delivery system from Harmonic, the channel offers live and linear 2160p60 video content, enabling consumers to enjoy crystal-clear footage on a wide range of television and IP-connected devices." - http://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/harmonic_ds_nasa_tv_uhd.pdf, linked from main NASA TV page.

The PDF linked above covers a software download that claims to be able to stream NASA TV UHD which I could not get working; its not made very clear what is required to get it working. But, so I've been told, apparently the software is for streaming from the sat box on one's own local are network and is not in fact for use with any internet stream which is not avaialble yet.

I love NSF!

Amazing work to get all that in one post. The old thread - of several years - has been cut away, allowing this excellent post to be the new lead for the new sticky thread.

Great work! One note on the UHD: the software noted is what's necessary to connect to your satellite dish receiver. The online stream is still not an option.

ADVISORY:
 
Beginning on June 1, 2016, NASA Television becomes fully High Definition (HD) and will no longer distribute a Standard Definition (SD) feed. On that date, the programming previously aired on NASA TV Standard Definition Channel 102 will begin airing on the High Definition NASA TV Public Education Channel 101.
 
Viewers and media outlets are urged to make note of the below technical details for the new (all HD) NASA TV channel line-up, effective June 1, 2016, and contact your cable distributors and satellite service providers to ensure that they too are informed of the change and are able to continue providing NASA TV on their systems.
 
NASA Television Line-Up as of June 1, 2016:
 
Channel 101 Public-Education Channel is available at:
NTV-1 (Public-Education) HD Program = 101 (HQ1) Compression Format = MPEG-2, Video PID = 0x112 hex / 274 decimal, AC-3 PID = 0x113 hex / 275 decimal, MPEG I Layer II Audio PID = 0x115 hex / 277 decimal.
 
Channel 103 Media Channel is available at:
NTV-3 (Media) HD Program = 103 (HQ3) -- Compression Format = MPEG-4, Video PID = 0x1031 hex / 4145 decimal, AC-3 Audio PID = 0x1034 hex /4148 decimal, MPEG I Layer II Audio PID = 0x1035 hex /4149 decimal.
 
Channel 104 (Ultra High Definition Test Channel Operated by Harmonic):
UHD PROGRAM = 104 -- Compression Format: HEVC @ 13 Mbps, Video PID: 0x1041 hex/4161 decimal, MPEG I Layer II Audio PID: 0x1044 hex/ 4164 decimal, AAC-LC PID: 0x1045 hex/4165 decimal. *

Since this page was originally published, NASA combined the NASA TV Public and NASA TV Education channels into a single Public-Education channel. New HLS feeds are now available for both the NASA TV Public-Education and Media channels:

NASA TV Public-Education
https://nasa-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/253565/NTV-Public/master.m3u8
NASA TV Media
https://nasa-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/253566/NTV-Media/master.m3u8

The older Akamai HLS and HDS feeds will be discontinued soon.

A new HLS-only player will be coming to the www.nasa.gov site soon, using the new streams.

NASA TV Media
https://nasa-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/253566/NTV-Media/master.m3u8

The above playlists do not seem to be working. is there any update? also where can I find the currently active playlists?  I have a kodi player for nasa tv since my cable provider doesn't chose to offer it, and I'd like to update it since the author hasn't had an opportunity to do so yet

Thanks
