Isn't this what the Internet is for (other than Porn, of course :sure: ) ???James Long said:Still "coming soon" to E*...
I've got to admit, I've spent a lot of time checking DishHOME to see if it is there.
Plus, I've actually watched TWC!
Nick, can you get "Local on the 8's" for a distant location?
For example, I occasionally go to the inlaws for the weekend and have looked at the in-Accuweather forecast to see what they are expecting for weather (hey, there is always hope that it could be right). With the new "on the 8's" I should be able to simply select their area.
Sometimes your region isn't the one you care about.
No, at present the TWC data is specific to the designated areas in whichJames Long said:...Nick, can you get "Local on the 8's" for a distant location? Sometimes your region isn't the one you care about.
I thought the Internet was for talking about television, or in our case, television delivery systems?bobukcat said:
I rememer something like that on a local channel, way back in the 50's before cable at least around here. We got 5 channels.:eek2: :eek2: :eek2: :eek2: My mom was on Queen for a Day and won!James Long said:Or you'd have to go back to E* (once the new application is activated).
The internet seems to work as a replacement.
I remember the first weather channel I saw on local cable. A black and white camera on a motor that panned back and forth across a set of weather dials with local advertisements written on cards between the dials. That was replaced by "TWC" when the cable system got it's first satellite dish.
We have come a long way.
The only regular thing I watch on TWC is "It Could Happen Tomorrow"!Jim5506 said:Now, unfortunately, the weather channel is going the way of MTV. That is, leaving their original successful format.
Instead of doing weather, they do Storm Stories, and other such gunk that is more fluff and filler than helpful weather info.
Here in the Cleveland market we have 2 locas stations with weather subchannels: WKYC has NBC Weather Plus and WOIO has their own Weather Net which also has news headlines.Scottthedott said:Here in Kansas City we have our local NBC affiliate putting out a weather channel via OTA in I swear in 720p. The picture is great. I have seen it in other cities. We won't need it on the 8's here in KC.
Those outside the reaches of local OTA signals, those who won't / can't put up an antenna, and those cavemen still using SD televisions still will welcome the "Weather on the 8's" when it makes its appearance.Scottthedott said:Here in Kansas City we have our local NBC affiliate putting out a weather channel via OTA in I swear in 720p.
