Re: the weather channel local on the 8s hd, when?

said by DrDrew:

Older people tend to go outside or watch the local news if they want the local weather...

Mike's definition of older people - anyone over 18...

people in the 60s 70s and 80s. Quite a few don't have a computer and the weather changes between newscasts or perhaps they have a meeting during the newscast. Also some don't have digital preferred which is required to get weatherscan in some areas.
Of course comcast and nbc are ONLY worried about money and they wrongly ASSUME everyone has a computer or access to the internet these days.

If there is something important happening, every local news station covers it, as well as local radio stations. "Old people" can find the weather just fine without TWC or internet.
