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

said by cypherstream:

Wow more series on TWC? Classic case of Network Decay!

They just need to put an on screen prompt to push a button to get weather. I have no issue with that on DirecTV.

I just switched my TV to DirecTV and they put the local on the 8's on at the receiver level as DirecTV uses a single transmission point for the whole country.

Maybe Comcast could push a software update to their receivers so the local on the 8's is put on at the receiver instead of at the headend. Many times the headend is in one city and the customer is in another city. Where I live, the headend is in Westfield but I live in Springfield (MA) and those are separate forecast zones in the eyes of the National Weather Service due to terrain.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.
