comcast is only part owners of CSN Bay Area, CSN California, CSN Chicago, CSN Mid Atlantic, CSN New England and the teams do have pull and that is what is killing CSN Huston as one of the team owns wanted a high fee for it's full covage area.   Now what happens if MLB changes the teams zones?

 

CSN Bay Area is 25% fox

I liked FOX Sports Channel back in the day.

Just saw that. An odd addition, seemingly the first* pay-tv provider to offer it

 

*-Dish carried it's predecessor for a short time during a contract dispute with The Weather Channel a few years ago

Really, another weather channel in HD when there's so many other well established and new HD options available.

Looking for Oxygen, We, Sprout, Esquire, Sundance, Fuse, Revolt, justice channel just to name a few off the top of my head.

Well I see why they added it.  It takes very little bandwidth (compresses well).  http://www.weathernationtv.com/OnTV

 

Highest online streaming setting is 2600k.  Looks fine even blown up on a 1920x1200 24" monitor.  2600kbps can tuck nicely in a transponder.

Nice to have a real weather channel and not the comcast / nbc general-entertainment / Reality television one.


I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I don't have anything on 361 except a D* logo and a message that says NUTV (infomercials) moved to channel 258 on November 27. What gives?

 

Weather Nation is just in test mode on 361.  No one knows for sure when it will go live.  It could be tomorrow, or it could not be for another month.

Ok I was going to post the same thing. 361 is just a DirecTV "slate" here.

Another reason why NOT to ever trust Wikipedia. They say Weather Nation IS ON DirecTV Ch 361.

I wonder if it is a bluff or if DirecTV will be carrying two HD weather services.

Great. The more competition the better. I like TWC, when they focus on current weather conditions etc, but that has slowly declined. Looking forward to Weather Nation HD soon.

Looking through the guide on 361, the info changes "to be announced" on Thursday, Dec. 5 @ 3AM Pacific Time. Could this be the start up of Weather Nation HD?

One of the Seattle locals is carrying WeatherNation in 16:9 480i on a part-time basis (subchannel 44-5, which I can receive with my AM21).  I'm not all that impressed, although the local forecasts give more information than Weather Channel does.
