NASA TELEVISION TRANSMISSION

NASA Television is carried on an MPEG‐2
digital signal accessed via satellite AMC‐6, at
72 degrees west longitude, transponder 17C,
4040 MHz, vertical polarization. For those in
Alaska or Hawaii, NASA Television will be
seen on AMC‐7, at 137 degrees west longitude,
transponder 18C, at 4060 MHz, horizontal
polarization. In both instances, a Digital Video
Broadcast, or DVB‐compliant Integrated
Receiver Decoder, or IRD, with modulation of
QPSK/DBV, data rate of 36.86 and FEC 3/4 will
be needed for reception. The NASA Television
schedule and links to streaming video are
available at:

http://www.nasa.gov/ntv

NASA TV’s digital conversion will require
members of the broadcast media to upgrade
with an ‘addressable’ Integrated Receiver
De‐coder, or IRD, to participate in live news
events and interviews, media briefings and
receive NASA’s Video File news feeds on a
dedicated Media Services channel. NASA
mission coverage will air on a digital NASA
Public Services “Free to Air” channel, for which
only a basic IRD will be needed.

Television Schedule

A schedule of key in‐orbit events and media
briefings during the mission will be detailed in
a NASA TV schedule posted at the link above.
The schedule will be updated as necessary and
will also be available at:

http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/
mission_schedule.html

Status Reports

Status reports on launch countdown and
mission progress, in‐orbit activities and landing
operations will be posted at:

http://www.nasa.gov/shuttle

This site also contains information on the crew
and will be updated regularly with photos and
video clips throughout the flight.
