Dish Network has teamed up with The Weather Channel to launch a new weather service on Dish Network’s satellite TV platform. DISH subscribers now have access to an interactive weather program offered in tandem with the weather-related network. Effective immediately, the company said, DISH Network customers watching The Weather Channel on DISH channel 214 will have ongoing access to extensive local and national weather information including current conditions, Doppler radar, and 24-hour/five-day forecasts. The interactive service also allows viewers to access weather data from across the country and save up to five favorite markets. DISH said before this announced service expansion, viewers could only access the interactive feature through DishHOME channel 100. "The innovative ITV application for local weather for DISH Network customers enables The Weather Channel to provide viewers with truly personalized weather forecasts that give customized, targeted information to help them plan their day," said Becky Powhatan, The Weather Channel EVP, distribution and business affairs. "And now it's become even easier and faster to obtain." DISH Network's iTV service offers an interactive menu that includes more than 40 different virtual and enhanced channels including The Weather Channel's Interactive Weather Application, CNN! Enhance d and Showtime Interactive. DISH said it has the most iTV-enabled set top boxes with more than 12 million households. Source:
