NASA TV Video File Returns to Public Channel Four Times Daily
The NASA TV 'Video File' developed for the NASA Public Channel airs daily at 9 a.m., 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. EDT

'Video File' features news and information about NASA missions and events. It has the same items as 'Video File' on the NASA Media Channel; however, the items are introduced and showcased with narration and music.

NASA TV's original Video File airs on the NASA Media Channel at 12 p.m. with replays at 3 p.m., 6 p.m., 10 p.m., 12 a.m., 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. EDT. Media should periodically check the online 'Video File' rundown for items added after the 12 p.m. feed.

For continental North America, NASA TV is carried on an MPEG-2 digital signal accessed via satellite AMC-6, at 72 degrees west longitude, transponder 17C, 4040 MHz, vertical polarization. Beginning October 1, it will be available in Alaska and Hawaii on an MPEG-2 digital signal accessed via satellite AMC-7, transponder 18C, 137 degrees west longitude, 4060 MHz, vertical polarization. A Digital Video Broadcast compliant Integrated Receiver Decoder is required for reception.
