''Started streaming on Sep 30, 2016''

''The ISS passes into the dark side of the earth for roughly half of each of its 90 minute orbits. As the Space Station passes into a period of night every 45 mins video is unavailable - during this time, and other breaks in transmission is shown.''

This is cool. Enjoy.

I think they must pre-record a certain amount of it. I've been watching this for over an hour now, and twice they've moved to the dark side of the planet. Each time, as soon as it got completely dark, one of the crew moved the camera and did something with it, put it back into place a few moments later and it started showing the day side again. So I guess they pre-record the previous time they're on the day side.
