I did not look to see whether it is on yet, but new channels usually (but not always) go live on Wednesdays.

Usually the new HD channel will show up in the directv app for iPad or phone first. Nothing as of yet. Maybe Sixto could confirm that WeatherNation HD is still in test?

I look forward to DirecTV adding the high def for at least one programmer that is overdue and desired for carriage.

 

:down:

 

This weather-related programmer is not it.

Are you not able to access TV apps? Quite good!


The one thing I wish the HD weather app had is a text version of the forecast instead of the pictures.

For what it's worth, WeatherNation HD shows up in the guide on 361 from locatetv. Not sure how reliable this is.

Because that is the owner of the network... http://www.performan...m/networks.html

Considering that the only source they cite is our very own Sixto report which says nothing about a launch date just that it's in test, and the edit was made by the same person who also said it would launch on the 12th (along with a bunch of other typo ridden false claims in the past two weeks), what a Wikipedia article says is meaningless. Until you hear it from DirecTV or WeatherNation, or it appears in the guide on the DirecTV app like many other previous launches did, the actual launch date is unknown.

Wikipedia says that it launched on December 3rd. It cites Sixto's post that says it's in test, but doesn't say it's in test!

Don't get excited.. Dish had WeatherNation when TWC was off. It wasn't very good.

WeatherNation is available on one of my locals as a 16:9 SD subchannel.  They do focus only on national weather and the local station inserts local forecasts on the bottom third of the screen, but other than that it is pretty boring.  Considering how far TWC has gotten from "just the facts about weather" it's still a welcome addition.  Sometimes I just want to glance at the weather in my region without going online or wading through a six hour marathon of Storm Stories.

I don't know why when everyone watches the news or weather they want it to be fast paced and exciting. Years ago when the Weather channel and news channels were slow paced and boring you got a warm feeling from it and a feeling that it was genuine and legit. So when people on here are saying that the WeatherNation is boring that can only be a good thing just like when Bill O'Reilly said Al Jazeera America is boring.
