Does anyone know why The Weather Channel does not show the local forcast like Cable? I think I might know the reason, but would like to hear if someone knows for sure. (I am aware of the New Local Forcast that is available on Ch. #100.):scratchin

Eventually what is there will be on the weather channel. Quite obviosuly it is harder to get the local weather on satellite than it is on one cable system.

DBS satellite providers pick up th national TWC feed. Cable's "Local on the 8s"
insert and the ever-present black on-screen banner, not yet available on satellite,
is auto-generated and fed to individual cable systems according to their unique
five-digit weather codes.

Dish Network has already started implementation of local service. Right now it is on channel 100 under option 2 then 5. It switches you to TWC and displays local weather info at the bottom of the screen. Later versions are supposed to work from channel 214 which will have a "press Select" icon to bring up local weather.
