    Accuweather is replacing Weathernation 8-1. Has anyone seen the Accuweather channel? Is it better or worse than Weathernation?

    They all report the weather, so who cares.

    Exception being the weather channel which seemed to go to crap after showing Tv shows about the weather

    Reed Timmer is on Accuweather. He chases storms should be good coverage.
    Also believe Mark Mancuso former Weather channel meterologist is on as well.

    Weather nation just feels like low budget public access.

    AccuWeather went live sometime after midnight (either eastern or central time).

    I had to manually type it in and then right arrow over and add to my favs channel list.

    It looks nice. Did weather nation go off the air, or do other providers still carry it?

    I took TWC off of my favorites during that dust-up a few years ago. I occasionally tuned in to WeatherNation. Too many reality shows and very little weather on TWC.
    If Reed Timmer is a regular I WILL be watching AccuWeather. He's crazy, in a good way.

    Weather Nation is no longer on as Accuweather is in its spot ... 361 and 361.1
    Also, I may have missed this previously but we also have Weather Underground on 362 ...

    Weather Underground is a regular daily show on the Weather channel.

    Weather Underground was bought by The Weather Channel in 2012 and ruined forever.
