Probably not. Here's why, The Weather Channel is owned by NBC Universal. So, to get SyFy, USA, MSNBC, Universal Sports, Universal Network, NBC Sports Network, Ovation, We, CNBC, et. al., DirecTV will have to carry The Weather Channel. WeatherNation is much better; it is weather reports, which is the whole idea. The Weather Channel has turned into a reality channel, albeit weather related, with weather reports sprinkled in fro good measure. WeatherNation si what teh Weather Channel use dto be in its early days.
That may or not be true. It depends on how their contract with Directv reads.
