Was pleasantly surprised to see this in my email this morning from Verizon.

QUOTE
Dear Valued Verizon Customer,

Verizon’s agreements to carry The Weather Channel and Weather Scan have expired, and have not been renewed. In today’s environment, customers are increasingly accessing weather information not only from their TV but from a variety of online sources and apps. Verizon is therefore pleased to launch the new AccuWeather Network, which will be available on FiOS® TV on channel 119/619 (HD) and on our free FiOS Mobile App starting March 10, 2015. Verizon will also provide the FiOS TV WeatherBug “widget” application, which features hyper-local weather, on FiOS TV channel 49. WeatherBug can also be launched by pressing the “widget” button on the FiOS TV remote.


Sincerely,

Your Verizon Team


Wonder if Margusity will be on air, that'll be a hoot!

I just saw an article about this on nj.com.

The Weather Channel wants FiOS customers to call and complain - but they sure won't get a call from me. I'm quite happy about this - TWC's general lack of "weather" has frustrated me to no end.

I agree, TWC is more like a game show now and its hard to get a real forecast listening to all the scripted babble.

Update: Just wanted to let users know I finally got to check out the channel and I am quite impressed. Real weather and information. Bernie Rayno segments are excellent. I know its only day one and expect them to tweak and build a format but I am happy as a pig in you know what. I love the coverage and the fact that its straight weather and not glitz and pompoms is refreshing.

Great start Accuweather, looking forward to more!!! Cheers!

How long before we see Rayno or Margusity rolling around in the snow making snow angels and stating they'd rather witness thundersnow instead of winning 500 million dollars? LMAO

Unfortunately, my cable provider here in Florida is not carrying the new Accuweather
channel.
