It should be a "no brainer" that Verizon include this channel. I think that despite years of internet discussion about it Verizon still has not heard us.
Yesterday I called the best number I could find to request it - Customer Service. The rep said they had no way to document the request and offered to transfer me to Tech Support. I waited on hold for 20 min before I had to hang up.
Thanks to the Techman for his interest and effort to get this done.
I doubt it'd be free to Verizon, we'd have to write a pretty big check to NASA , but i bet it'd still be free to you!
Hope we can get it, TechMan, count my Vote!
The NASA TV Public and Educational channels are "free-to-air," meaning your cable or satellite service provider can carry them at no cost. Contact your local cable or satellite service provider about carrying NASA TV.
NASA TV's Public, Education and Media channels are available on an MPEG-2 digital C-band signal via satellite on AMC 6, Transponder 17C in continental North America. In Alaska and Hawaii, they're available on AMC 7, Transponder 18C. Analog NASA TV is no longer available.
Also I the NASA TV site has the info to view in HD so we shall see.
