It's sad :mad:

Perhaps DISH should consider this a breach of contract and drop them for The Weather Cast. They got back on DISH by promising to do live weather (they dropped the Friday movie) an the regional feeds. Looks like a breach to me.

I want the Weathercast channel back. Weather based reality programming??? WTF? As if the weatherchannel didn't suck enough. I must say I am kind of amazed at the direction they want to go.

NBC Uni posted a video interview with Peacock Productions executive Sharon Scott about the company's intentions for the network, which include reducing the amount of live weather coverage. Scott points out we have iPads now, so this whole covering weather on TV is just getting silly (try telling that to NBC's local news stations). :nono2:

What a joke. The Weather Channel is now just like Music Television. Neither are relevant anymore.

I use to be considered a "super viewer" by The Weather Channel. Not for the last 3 years or so. I remember shortly after it started there were no commercials...just on-air reporting and cut-aways to "your local forecast." Now, I think it is pretty much worthless. I do get Weatherscan via basic Comcast...and that it where I turn to see what's happening weatherwise. The 1 day alternative that DISH threatened The Weather Channel with was no solution...much of it was recorded. Maybe NBCs new-improved Weather Channel will feature Donald Trump!

Scott points out we have iPads now,

Apparently she doesn't realize the extremely small percentage of people who have or even want those.
