Weather nation gone on WJRT

Post by static1701 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:51 am

I noticed last night that the weather channel has been replaced with bounce. I really liked that channel, we had one in the Detroit market but it went away years ago. I hope they bring them back when ATSC 3.0 gets going. So now I have a big antenna pointed for WJRT that I can point somewhere else....

Good channel. Their execution was horrible. Spots cut off, same promos for years.

Do you mean the Weather scan channel developed by the Weather Channel? I have only seen Weather Nation on Roku/Fire.

Weatherscan is different from this. WeatherNation was meant to be a TWC competitor and is for both OTA and streaming — what you saw on Roku would be roughly the same as what you would see OTA. Weatherscan has never been an OTA channel, which is a shame, because stations would get a *lot* of use out of it...

I noticed that it was gone, too. I frequently go to it at various hours to get a radar look at the weather in the area.

I agree that the way they did it could have been better, but it was better than nothing. Apparently, the contract was up, and they needed something to replace it.
