The analog satellite signal used to broadcast feeds and
other programming on NASA Television will soon become digital.
Digital technology will enable NASA to concurrently broadcast
multiple channels of broadcast-quality video, as well as
interactive content and other information, all from one
satellite transponder.

Your access to NASA TV content will be impacted by this upgrade
in technology, and your ability to see the programming provided
by the agency will be affected, unless you have the correct
equipment to convert the new digital signal.

To keep you informed and to help you through this transition,
the agency has set up an Internet site where you can join an e-
mail list to receive periodic updates about the digital
conversion.

For information on how to sign up for news about the transition
from analog to digital, visit:

The NASA TV homepage has broadcast schedules and information
about the transition process on the Internet at:

To better serve you in the future, we want to know how you use
the material provided by NASA TV. You’ll be asked to complete a
brief survey, so we can send you the most appropriate
information. No personal information will be collected, and
those who register will only be contacted with news about the
digital conversion of NASA TV.
