Starting on April 7 and lasting through April 8, Google says it will highlight a collection of content on Google TV to celebrate the eclipse. During this time, Google TV will show a selection of free, ad-supported (FAST) local and national channels covering the moment.

For those who don’t want to miss out on anything, the channels will appear in the For You tab. They’ll also be shown with a custom eclipse-themed title card, which you can an example below.


These local and regional FAST channels will include:

  • NBC News Now

  • NBC Los Angeles
  • NBC Philadelphia
  • NBC New York
  • NBC Connecticut
  • NBC South Florida
  • NBC Boston

Even for those living in an area outside of the path of totality, millions will still be able to experience a partial eclipse as it covers a majority of North America. The path of totality will pass through a number of cities like Dallas, Indianapolis, and Buffalo. You can see the full path by heading over to NASA’s website.
