NASA TV HD and NASA TV UHD distributed on Eutelsat satellites


Eutelsat Communications, one of the world's leading satellite operators, today announced that the NASA High Definition (NTV-3) and NASA Ultra High Definition (NTV-4) channels are broadcasting in free-to-air via satellite for the first time across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Viewers from across these regions can now enjoy exceptional images from the U.S. space programme, including coverage of launches, life on-board the International Space Station, Earth views from space, deep space exploration, the solar system, Mars, replay of NASA classics such as the Apollo programme, and documentaries on NASA’s latest R&D work.

  • NASA TV HD is transmitted free-to-air from the popular HOTBIRD video neighbourhood at 13° East for viewers in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and via the 7° East video neighbourhood for viewers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • NASA TV UHD is also broadcast on the HOTBIRD and 7° East video neighbourhoods, as well as the FRANSAT TV platform via the EUTELSAT 5 West A satellite, for subscribers equipped with an Ultra HD-compatible TV set*. The channel, produced by Harmonic, leverages Harmonic's latest Ultra HD end-to-end media processing and delivery technologies, with image resolution levels four times higher than standard HD.

Eutelsat is the first satellite operator to make NASA TV channels accessible to a large and rapidly growing audience base across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa. Offering an unequalled viewing experience, the addition of NASA TV UHD underlines the continuous expansion of Ultra HD content transmitted via Eutelsat’s fleet of satellites.
