    Since it's a hurricane again do u think directv will activate the severe weather channel and mix again ?


    I saw it the other day but then it died down to Tropical Storm

    kyl416 over at Edge Cutters said they did while Florida affiliates were doing wall to wall coverage however when the track shifted and the Florida locals went back to hourly updates & tickers the Severe Weather Mix channels were taken down.

    Thanks , yea i remember briefly seeing the Florida one the other morning .

    And makes sense if locals are not in extended storm mode no need for the channel.

    I'm sure if they had it today there would be some decent coverage .

    Whats the minimum storm threshold for the channel hurricane cat 1 ??

    It worked fine for me through most of the night. but this morning I got the same message. And there wasn't an actual mix channel. But it does change from TWC to other local broadcasts. Maybe there weren't enough channels covering the weather to do a mix?

    Looks like news mix has severe weather channel instead of BBC
