Fixed NASA TV streaming issues
I like using this app because Iearn new things
Superb! NASA does things so well, so right! But two improvements needed...
If you haven't watched NASA TV before, you're in for a treat.
Includes schedule info, on demand segments, pause controls, etc.
To those who say they can't get sound, that's because sometimes there is none! It's a welcome change from our noise-cluttered environment on Earth! Enjoy that! It's fun *quietly* watching people in the control room, watching the Earth go by, etc. We don't always need narration and, fortunately, there is no background distracting music!
Space is quiet and NASA TV respects and conveys that, especially when the ISS drifts slowly over our home planet.
Well, that is, quiet for the ISS live coverage--the staged video segments often use irritating percussion tracks or, even, distracting music. There's a little too much MTV style--too fast, too choppy, and too much effort at trying to be "hip" or "cool" that falls flat. Sometimes, they even feel designed for the pre-teen set!
One other nit-pick--or, even a flaw! The Schedule section of upcoming live events doesn't indicate which time zone it's for!
On the web, there's a statement that it's for local time; yet, most of the ISS related showing times mentioned on air have been given first in CST then EST. We tuned to watch the Soyuz landing today and ended up missing it! We first watched for 15-20 minutes waiting for it--no luck; decided to shut it off and tune back in for the CST start, but now have discovered it started earlier! If it's CST, one wouldn't know that from the listings!
Hey, NASA, you all definitely need to add that--you are a science organization, after all!
