Can we stop talking about TWC like it's coming back geez, it's like the other forum's ESPN deal predictions,  Who cares what TWC or Directv say to each other, It's like the bully(TWC) it's mad for not giving up lunch money(increase).

This has turned into another "The Weather Channel" thread. We already have one of those. If there's nothing more to the original topic, I'll close this one, so...

I noticed that the weather nation channel that directv carries is different then the one that roku has which means that weather nation has three different channels one for directv one for roku and one for ota

What have these guys been doing with the major weather events in progress?  Heavy storms, flooding, hail, tornado warnings in California and the return of bitter cold with a potential major ice storm brewing.

I find weathernation is poor at best for a weather source.
But so was the weather channel.

Update: DirecTV and Denver-based WeatherNation sign multi-year agreement
DirecTV and Denver-based WeatherNation announced Wednesday that they have signed a multi-year agreement that will give DirecTV's 20 million viewers 24/7 access to weather information.
DirecTV spokesman Darris Gringeri declined to disclose the length of the contract, but said the satellite TV provider began using WeatherNation in December and extended the relationship because of good viewer response.
"The overwhelmingly positive comments we've been receiving from customers made the decision to extend our agreement easy and expedient," DirecTV's chief content officer Dan York said.

I use the web for my weather. Personal weather sites sometimes bring real-time weather conditions with web cams for your area of interest. Just saying TV is the last place I look for weather.....Example here. http://www.pageweather.com/
