HD weather channel

HD weather channel

Why is the HD weather channel (815) content different then the standard weather channel (67)? When "local on the 8's" comes on the HD weather channel (ch 815), we only get national forecasts. On ch 67, we get local Dover weather. Can we get local weather for HD also?

Re: HD weather channel

Careful what you wish for. Adding "Local on the Eights" to the HD feed requires adding equipment, and Comcast is cheaping out as it does this by combining existing "Local on the Eights" areas with neighboring ones. You could wind up with "Local" weather information from 50 or more miles away. See, for example, http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/Comcast-Weather-for-Brick/m-p/2140602#U2140602
