DIRECTV Matthew coverage
« on: October 06, 2016, 07:02:59 AM »
From the FWIW department...

For those of you in the US and subscribe to DIRECTV they have four channels covering Hurricane Matthew...

361 - WeatherNation
361-1 Severe Weather Mix
361-2 Severe Weather Channel - appears to be local coverage from Florida stations
362 - The Weather Channel

TWC.... Covering W-E-A-T-H-E-R??? (Ok, I went there  \:D/ )

That's quite a bit of coverage. Wish I had satellite T.V every once in awhile.  8-) :-P
Weather Software -> GREarth, GRAnalyst 2.xx, MRLevel3, GRLevel 3 2.xx, Bufkit, and GRLevel2.

Weather Station -> LaCrosse 328-2314 weather station.

Directv has added weather mix channel 361-1 with the Liberal Think Tank CNN as one of the 4 channels.  LMAO

I miss TWC on my TV since I cut the cord.  :-(

I'd be watching non stop now.

Not to change subject but if you have 5 mbps internet check out Playstation Vue they have by far the best streaming service also works on Ruko & Amazon Fire all 720p HD channels with good package prices. Its where I'll be going when I cut the cord from Satellite and Cable. They have a 7 day free trial.

Yep. Read about that. I'm pretty well covered. I've got an HD antenna & get all the major networks & supplement that with my Roku & Nexus Player.
Saved $110 a month off my old Time Warner bill. Vue gets a lot of great reviews too!

361-1 & 361-2 were good earlier this morning but have now gone blank. -1 has a DIRECTV logo and music in the background but no programming. -2 is just a black screen with no audio at all. 362 (TWC) is still working as is 361 (Weather Nation).

For those that watched it, how did you feel the coverage was? Did TWC seem to do a better job?
