Goodbye Weather Channel on Dish

As of Thursday night at midnight, due to the fee dispute with NBC Universal, Dish Network has officially dropped The Weather Channel from its channel lineup. Instead, Dish Network will offer a weather channel of its own called The Weather Cast.

Dish Network took this action because The Weather Channel “recently moved away from weather reporting to a mix of movies and other entertainment-focused programming.” Programming specials such as Storm Stories, Full Force Nature,  and How Weather Changed History became a mainstay of entertainment based upon weather rather than just weather reports themselves.

 If you want The Weather Channel back, call Dish Network at 1-800-823-4929.
