We can't get NASA TV direct from the satellite up here in the far
northwest since they moved it to a satellite way out over the Atlantic
to give some western Europe viewers a shot, and cut out the US taxpayers
who pay the bill out in the NW U.S. >

I wasn't watching at the time so can't tell you about the delay.

NASA-TV is carried by the small dish digital TV system Dishnetwork:

Also, I thought I'd heard that it will be (or has been) added to the line-up
on the other small dish system Direct TV but am not sure of this.

NASA-TV is on GE-2 c-band transponder 9 for the big dish system.  It's at 85
degrees west.  It's a somewhat low angle shot from here but my system is set
up to receive as low as 62 degrees west towards the east end of the arc.  I
have no obstructions.
