Here is an email received from firstname.lastname@example.org asking when the local Weather Channel 213 will start. Good Day Mr. Hevener, Thank you for contacting DISH Network with your question. As part of our discussions with The Weather Channel, we expressed our customer's interest in the option of having more local-focused weather as a counterpart to their current programming line up which has grown to include weather specials and historical weather event programs. As of today, we do not have any additional information on the timeline for the local weather options for Channel 213. However, we value your question and will be submitting it to Charlie Chat as we are sure other customers also have the same request for additional information on this subject. Thank you, Melanie ******** Executive Communications 10:30 AM - 7 PM MST Sunday 12:30 PM - 9 PM MST Monday - Thursday Dish Network LLC.
