    we need to take some action to convince 
    the pinheads at DirecTV to put NASA on
    it regular US broadcast sat(s) as Plus &
    Para Todos require nonstandard DTV receivers.
    see DTV reply below.
    certainly DTV could broadcast NASA during a 
    Shuttle mission, if not 24/7.  how do we
    convince them ??
    meanwhile, the web cast is semi ok over my
    any update on visibility of STS+ISS from its
    internal lighting, are the lights on 24 hrs 
    a day ?  
    Thank you for writing. We place our most popular programming, along with
    some of our public service channels, at our main orbital location, 101 
    degrees west longitude so customers with DIRECTV receiving equipment 
    will be able to receive it. We use our additional satellite capacity at 
    other orbital locations for programming whose appeal is not as broad. 
    This programming includes NASA TV, Spanish-language programming, local 
    channels for some cities, HDTV and some public service channels. 
    Additional equipment (A DIRECTV PLUS or DIRECTV PARA TODOS System) is 
    necessary to receive this programming.
