    Wow, even giving us a local NOLA station. D* is really going the extra mile with making their customers aware and prepared. Are there awards for coverage like this?

    You can watch all 4 networks in New Orleans on one page. Just mute all the ones and listen to the ones you want. And it is WMP and zoom to full screen. Pretty cool.

    Thank You DirecTV and thank you so much!!! I commend you on this greatly!!

    The Music is from XM's Flight 26. They can't provide XM weather channel or NWS weather if they don't have those feeds. But thanks for the music DirecTV!

    I wonder if they will do this for Future Hurricanes? I hope they do and I hope they don't have to either.

    Best of Wishes to everyone that is stuck in the middle of this storm.

    It seems it already has, since it is displaying Ike information as I type this.

    When the Hurricane hit Florida last week, Directv aired a live feed from Florida, I can't remember the channel but it was in the 300's. Anyone know if they will carry a live feed from Texas this weekend?
