I like the hint that the mix channel will include local stations. I always watch KFOR in Oklahoma City when they are having severe weather using their internet feed. Locals can by far, show people a state away, like me in the case of OKC, what they are in for in the next 12-24 hours, as well as keep everyone informed that wants to keep up. Rather than bouncing all over the internet searching up local stations with webcasts where there is severe weather, it would be awesome to tune in one channel on DirecTv and let them do the searching for me, and they have all the feeds in HD already, so they wont even have to resort to using a web feed. This could be a REAL boost in real time information disemination TWC could only hope for.
There already is a web based group of storm trackers that webcast from the middle of the storms. DirecTv could tap into that, and could theoretically broadcast every tornado live in real time.
I am impressed.
