Really? The Weather Channel that is on DISH has a lot of non-weather content ... and while shows like "When Weather Changed History", "Storm Stories" and other documentary productions can be useful to deeper understand the weather - we're not getting weather coverage during those programs - just current conditions.
Can't speak about The Weather Channel on Dish... but The Weather Channel I receive on DirecTV is 24x7 Weather.
And this Friday we can watch Gorillas in the Mist instead of weather.
I never saw that movie... but unless something happens in the film that I'm not aware of, that's a rather liberal choice of a weather related film.
The only 24/7 televised weather feed I get is via local OTA television. TWC isn't 24/7 weather.
It is on my TV... though "Gorillas In The Mist" may indeed be pushing it...
BTW, I can't speak for every channel, but I know some of my neighboring DMAs occasional run e/i programming during the daytime on some of their weather channels, so some are out of luck there...
