NASA Television to Move to Satellite AMC 3; Launches New Schedule


MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. - Effective Jan. 16, 2010, NASA Television's Public, Education and Media channels will be available for downlink on satellite AMC 3. Additionally, NASA TV has reformatted its online program schedule to improve its readability.

Cable and satellite service providers, broadcasters, and educational and scientific institutions will need to re-tune their receiving devices to AMC 3 to continue accessing NASA TV for distribution.

News networks, their reporters and other broadcast media organizations must tune their satellite receivers to the Media Channel to ensure reception of clean feeds for all mission coverage, news conferences, and other agency distributed news and information. News and other media organizations will no longer be able to rely on content from the Public Channel for clean feeds of mission and other agency activities.

NASA TV's occasional HD feed and Live Interactive Media Outlet (LIMO) Channel also will migrate to AMC 3. For complete downlink information effective Jan. 16, 2010, visit:
