Washington: Taking technology to a new level, the US space agency has released its official app - NASA app - for a new platform, the fourth-generation Apple TV.

The app will provide you access to NASA TV on your TV as well live views from the International Space Station (ISS).

"The NASA app has been a fantastic way for the public to experience the excitement of space exploration from their mobile devices," said David Weaver, NASA associate administrator for Communications.

"Now, users with the latest Apple TV can explore and enjoy our remarkable images, videos, mission information, NASA Television and more on the big screen with the whole family," he added in a statement.

The NASA app for Apple TV also offers several features for users.

You can watch live streaming NASA TV and get a real-time view of the Earth from the space station.

The users can view more than 15,000 images individually or as a continuous slideshow and play "on demand" NASA videos.

They can view other NASA satellites pass overhead, based on their location and discover the latest NASA mission information.

"The users can listen to NASA’s online radio station “Third Rock” and view the Earth as art image gallery,” NASA said.

This app is already available for free on iPhone, iPad, Android and Amazon's Fire OS and has been downloaded more than 17 million times across all platforms.
