Though viscerally I find it hard to agree with anything that DirecTV says or does, given the boatloads of unmitigated abuse I had had from them, I do have to say, albeit very grudgingly, I have no problem, whatsoever, of them getting rid of ‘The Weather Channel‘. I will even say Bravo (and I am not referring to the channel).
To me, ‘The Weather Channel’ is a total waste of time — though to be fair I really never watch it! If I want weather on TV I go to a local station, even one in Boston. To say that ‘The Weather Channel’ shows local weather around the clock is a fallacy. They have so much useless crud that it is impossible to actually ever get what you want — in my opinion. I don’t even know what channel it is on! That alone tells me that I have no use for it. With the channels that I watch: CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, DISC, SCI, TLC, DEST, BBCA, HIST, HIST2 etc. etc. I know either the exact channel number or what range I can find it within, e.g., in the high 200s or middle 300s. No clue with ‘The Weather Channel’. So, I say: GRBR.
As DirecTV points out there are better resources. WMUR does have an APP and I do have it on my pad — and even used it for the first time yesterday, though without luck, to see how much snow accumulation we were supposed to get from the MLK weekend storm. So, I have no problem with DirecTV getting rid of those useless bums — and this will probably be the ONLY time I will agree with anything that DirecTV does.
I rely a LOT on ‘wunderground.com‘ for my local weather. They are wunderful!
