Is "Local Weather Now" fully implemented yet?

They still do not have the radar going when you press the red button for the different cities you have entered in the My Cities list.

I would like to see that working .

Hmmmm ... It looks like the door was open for TWC to negotiate their way back onto DirecTV.
Emphasis on "was".

Goodbye TWC.

I think TWC's scorched earth and DIRECTV bashing slammed that door shut a while back; this just makes it a lot more certain.  I suspect some business schools may want to use TWC's tactics in this dispute as a classic "what not to do in a negotiation" -- especially when you don't have as much leverage as you think.

I am guessing that they where thinking it was a short term deal and thought why bother with some things... Now that there is a long term deal i think they will make more of a effort to get some of these things live. I can see Weather Nation giving us a "local" forecast...

Looks like TWC may have opened the door for Weather Nation. I would still like to see accuweather channel added.

I have no need for the Weather Channel. If I need to see the weather I watch my local 6:00 PM or 10:00 PM Newscast.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
