NASA will be launching its own streaming service later this year, the US space agency said Thursday. 

The service, called NASA Plus, will livestream NASA missions. It will also feature original video series, including new shows being produced for the streaming service.

It's launching later this summer, the NASA Plus trailer says. According to the trailer, the titles of some of the series and channels will be NASA Talks, Space Out, The Color of Space, NASA Kids, NASA Explorers, WEBB Space Telescope, First Light, NASA En Español, Lucy, Mars Is Hard, NASA Explorers: Osiris Rex and Artemis I: Path to the Pad.

"Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery and innovates for the benefit of humanity," Marc Etkind, associate administrator for the agency's Office of Communications, said in a statement. 

NASA Plus will be free and have no ads. It'll be on streaming media players including Apple TV, Fire TV and Roku, as well as on the iOS and Android NASA app and on desktop. 

NASA also said updates to its website and app are coming. "This new web experience will serve as an ever-expanding yet consolidated homebase for information about the agency's missions and research, climate data, Artemis updates and more," NASA said in a blog post. You can see the beta version of the new website here.
