On November 8, 2006, Dish Network implemented a new feature that provides local weather information to subscribers. A new partnership between Dish Network and The Weather Channels makes it all possible.
The weather information includes local forecast info as well as the ability for subscribers to view forecast information for thousands of other cities across the United States.
Another feature of this new weather information allows Dish Network to send severe weather warnings.
Local weather information is delivered based on the subscriber’s ZIP Code and allows for very specific targeting of weather information.
The information and alerts are all displayed as overlays on The Weather Channel 24 hours a day.
