DirecTV Offers Dedicated Storm Coverage

DirecTV said it will help viewers stay apprised of this weekend’s winters storm in the Northeastern U.S. using a Severe Weather/News Mix channel.

The six-in-one blend will present a mosaic of feeds from WeatherNation, The Weather Channel, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and a channel dedicated to local and regional coverage from select affiliates. That latter will initially offer WJLA (ABC) in Washington D.C., and alternate with WRLH (FOX) in Richmond, Va.

All six channels will appear on-screen at the same time during Winter Storm Jonas, selectable using the remote for full-screen viewing, DirecTV said.

The Weather/News Mix channel will be available until 7 p.m. ET Friday on channel 361-1, and will switch to local/regional coverage only, on channel 361-2. The six-in-one offering will return at 6 a.m. ET on Saturday on channel 361-1, DirecTV said.
