    I've been watching this new offering from DTV this morning. Lots of weather info on it, the way the Weather Channel USED to be! Good maps and info. On air talent seems very weather knowledgeable. So far their "Local Weather" on the 5's has just been national slides. Will we get true "Local" weather info? Lets hope so! Nice addition DTV.

    I like it also. Good to see they provide a Caribbean forecast. Nice for vacationers who may be going on a cruise etc. in the next few days.

    I have Directv and do not see this channel. NUtv use to be on 361 and moved to 358 . Now there is Fox News Channel 360 and the next channel is 362 the Weather Channel. There is no longer channel 361 on my Directv. Not listed in the guide either. I called Directv and they said there is no channel 361. So how are you guys seeing this WeatherNation ?

    Do you have a favorite channel list set up? If so, you have to add channel 361 to it.

    Yeah its weird, they said WN was going to be on 361 a few weeks ago. So I went to 361 and it was NuTV but a slide saying it moved. I added 361 to favorites knowing WN was going to take its place. Well it didn't 361 vanished and never returned. I had to type in 361 today and arrow over and say add to favs.

    So there is proof that the favorites lists is not number based, or else it would of remembered that 361 was added from when I did it a few weeks ago ahead of time in anticipation for this.

    Anyway it seemed ok. The brunette was kind of attractive. Were supposed to get more snow tomorrow in the north east so good timing.

    All I am seeing any more on the Weather Channel "Locals on the 8's", is a generic Locals on the 8's, not the real local weather like we used to get.

    You might need to renter your zip code. Click "Active" and check to make sure it's your zip code listed for weather.

    It was already in there. I deleted it and re-entered it and it made no difference but after the third time "Locals on the 8's" came up it gave me my local weather. Don't know how long it will work but it worked that last time it came up.

    Ive been watching this channel on my Roku for a long time. Its what TWC used to be, and I suspect will cause TWC to lose ratings at a rapid pace, except perhaps their live reporting from storms in progess, which is pretty hard to duplicate.

    Like. If D* can figure a way to integrate the local forecasts I will like it even more. This channel seems to be pure weather and like the weather channel once was before it started throwing in all the reality type shows.
