The Weather Channel Dropped by DirecTV
In a recent announcement from DirecTV, The Weather Channel has been dropped from the satellite provider’s channel lineup. The loss of coverage for The Weather Channel is due to both entities being unable to reach a new deal for broadcasting. DirecTV is claiming that it could not come to an agreement with The Weather Channel because the station has been recently shifting its programming to focus more on reality television shows instead of weather. The Weather Channel is combating this claim, stating that DirecTV is putting lives in danger by incorporating a startup, known as WeatherNation, that they deem as cheap.
DirecTV customers are being advised to tune into WeatherNation on channel 362, which takes place of The Weather Channel.
