I agree with what has been said. Endless long details on smaller towns and cities in the NE.
Of course this is because Accu Weather is based up in PA or NJ I believe and the core market left for Verizon FIOS is in the mid atlantic and the NE. The rest doesn't matter its all sold off to the pitiful Frontier.
This is the first time since I have had any cable provider that a local radar with local weather alerts isn't included. Waiting for Accu weather to slowly cycle to Tampa is a waste of cable bandwith. The graphic suck though they did tune down th confused blinding bnright white. Its still chaos.
When severe weather pops up I want to see the alert on a crawler and the local radar. There is no problem interputing regular viewing for a emergency alert test but where is the radar showing the water spouts 2 miles away??
Accuweather is absolutely useless unless you live in the Northeast. Every single time i turn to to the channel the weather is for the Northeast -- switching people on/off camera every 2 minutes (estimate). Verizon made a terrible decision based on their bottom line - not based on customer satisfaction. Unfortunately Verizon is my only choice as AT&T doesn't have cable lines in my area and i don't want to switch to satellite. Otherwise i would have dropped Verizon for making a terrible business deciison that they aren't willing to change - despite all the complaints from their customers. Drop Accuweather -- it's not worth a penny!
I agree the Accuweather Channel is very poorly implemented but if you try the Accuweather Widget you get all the info you would need on demand without the talking heads. You can set it for your own zip code by default and also set up other zip codes you might want to check on which you can toggle through.
Widget has radar.
Just not motion on it.
Since we are stuck with this horrible weather channel.....well they call it a weahter channel
anyway how do contact them to change it a bit
1. change the background and type: currently it is hare do read
2 get rid of the side screen and expand the map
3 Most of all stop with everyone popping in for 2 mins. it is enough to give a person motion sickness. stick with one person
