I agree. Comcast please don't assume that everyone wants to see more Bachelors and Bridezillas. Put some intelligent programming on your system and hopefully you can inspire new generations of youth to aspire to more then MTV.
I live close enough to watch the shuttles launch from Kennedy Space Center and we don't get the NASA channel on Comcast. How stupid is that. NASA channel must cost Comcast a TON of money not to provide it. However they are just now catching up with the amount of HD channels the dish companies have had for like 4yrs.
WHERE IS THE NASA CHANNEL - IT'S FREE!
COMCAST: ARE YOU GOING TO ADDRESS THIS QUESTION PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING YOU FOR MANY YEARS?
I also would like to see the NASA channel. I live in the Baltimore area and I cannot believe we don't get it. Just because the shuttle program is winding down, we still want to see coverage of the ISS, James Webb related coverage (whether or not it continues), etc. The educational programming there is without comparison... I want my son to have something to aspire to!
I totally agree with these dozens of posts - please give us the NASA channel Comcast!
The space shuttle program might be done, but NASA has a lot more to show us.
Still looking for NASA TV on Comcast. Here's another customer who's being forced to use the Internet to watch Video. Comcast, your time is coming to a end!
I just recently switched to Comcast after my previous provider dropped AMC & IFC, but I wish Comcast would carry the NASA channel and more educational programming in general. With all the other sports, music, reality, shopping, specialty channels and different languages, there should be at least a little room for NASA and perhaps a few University channels as well. I can't imagine they'd cost them anything.
Unfortunatly Comcast doens't use the forums for channel addition suggestions. There is supposed to be a feedback link on the Comcast.com page that is also supposed to be used for channel addition requests.
But not many people have reported any success using that route.
We have looked through all the listings and can't find NASA TV, either low or high def. We have SCIHD (756) but the schedule doesn't show that it will be broadcasting anything other than regular programming.
One of my TV-savvy friends said "NASA TV is a cable channel. Some systems also carry the High Def version of NASA TV." And another said "Most cable providers have NASA TV as a first tier option. I'd check to see if you have it."
Where can I watch this on my TV??
Where can I watch this on my TV??
Isn't it clear from this thread that Comcast doesn't carry it?
I guess your "TV-savvy friend" is not savvy about Comcast.
I have an i7 Processor on my PC and a RADEON HD 4600 series video card
I am able to port over full screen HD using this card and my PC (the HDMI/DVI cable)
I run it via a cable to my 47" SONY HD LCD TV
My Internet provider is COMCAST BLAST and there is NO CHOP; NO LATENCY from what I can see
FWIW I am running Windows 7 Ult 74 bit and 24 GB of DDR3 RAM
With a Gigabyte USB-3 LGA 1366 X58 motherboard
I know pricey vs COMCAST just carrying NASA TV but a good alternate way to watch
Add me to the list. Burien, WA needs that NASA TV channel. I am not willing to pay for an HD Box but this added to the line up would make it a worth while investment. I don't care about a fat hilbilly that eats road kill. Show me NASA.
I still can't believe COMCAST does not carry NASA-TV in all its formats!!!??? Some of their subscribers work at the nearby Goddard Space Flight Center. You would think Comcast cares... With their proposed purchase of TW Cable they certainly must want to the merger to go ahead. While I can watch it on the Internet I prefer cable format. Come on'... Be Patriotic and forward thinking.
HEY COMCAST WAKEUP!!! Where is the NASA Channel?? I'm sure you could dump some other sorry channel like MTV for something a little more educational for the kids. I mean who gives a C$#P about someones crib when Nasa Is launching a new Spaceship or a man is floating and working in space?!!

Thank you so much for editing my reply and wiping it out. I dont know every <ahem> profane word in the world but the word starting with an I and ending in T is FAR from profane...no freedom of speech at COMCAST; TYPICAL CORPORATE SLUG.
I stated that the average Joe who is woefully uninformed would rather watch Dancing with the Stars ot American Idol which the networks poduce for NEXT to nothing and I am sure are sold as such to cable companies etc...vs a REAL station like NASA!
COMCAST squahes dissent...HITLER live there ??? NOW I SUPPOSE HITLER is now profane!!!
The word starting with I and ending with T was not the main reason the post was removed.
You used another word which you disguised with a * in place of the 3rd letter.
I don't make the rules. I do enforce them.
For what it's worth, I agree with everything you said. Reality shows have taken over the airwaves. Networks which used to have decent programming jumped on the reality show bandwagon.

I subscribe to Comcast and live in Anne Arundel County (Annapolis) area. We have tons of folks who work at NASA-Goddard (Greenbelt), NASA downtown DC, and boatloads of contractor companies supplying satellite and propulsion services to NASA. Still, no NASA TV. (Please no URLs in response -- they're usually loaded with grainy Ustream feeds). If Comcast wants to a clear avenue towards a merging with Time Warner Cable they would make a few more Representatives and Senators happy by carrying NASA TV. What a shame ...
Comcast+TWC should equal a NASA TV feed. Come On!
Yes, it's painfully clear since NASA-TV is not a revenue generator there is no need to carry it. Customers are pushed to the Internet (IP) feed instead. With both federal and state authorities pushing for more "STEM" education it's a shame (or sham) that Comcast does not truly promote some needed skills - after all, they depend on skilled techs and engineers to operate their cable plant. NASA TV is not a channel ... it's an investment in our nation's future!
