Sorting out Digital NASA TV

Alright, so NASA TV will be picking up Kickoff again (which, on behalf of all who lack the funds to make the trip, is much appreciated). The problem is that NASA has switched to digital, and thus there now appear to be four channels known as Digital NASA TV, two of which seem feasible for a cable system to carry (NASA Public and NASA Education). My cable listings, of course, just show NASA without qualification.

To those who would know better than I:

-If my cable listings show This Week At NASA from 1:00-3:00 and Video File for listings from 3:00-4:00 today, do I have NASA Public or NASA Education? Neither schedule on NASA’s website shows that listing; the closest actually seems to be NASA Media.
-Which NASA TV would carry Kickoff? I’d assume NASA Education, but you know what happens when you assume.

Over the past few years, all FIRST related NASA TV broadcasts have been on the Public channel.


I agree. Do not assume. Contact your cable provider and give them the transponder info from the FIRST site. They can tell you which, if any, of their channels match.
