Re: What happened to weatherscan local

No way, the X1 solution is awful, and is a poorly written app that DOESN'T work when you need it and it still has no live doppler-radar feed .  <Edited for violating forum guidelines: "Inflammatory">

Re: What happened to weatherscan local

Yeah, it seems like it always has been a trade-off between BW and money.  On the other hand, local live CONTINUOUS Doppler radar is priceless! {;-)

Re: Weather Scan channel removed

Hi Bob-NJ -- Weatherscan was removed from our lineups as part of a business decision. You can view local weather information from The Weather Channel with local on the 8's. You can also view local weather via X1 platform's Weather App, non-X1 with Main Menu > Local Weather, or via the weather information on the Home Security Touchscreen Controller.

Weatherscan Channel 101 is gone

I am very dissatisfied with the removal of Weatherscan from our lineup - Channel 101.  I have been a loyal Comcast customer for 20+ years, and this is disgusting!!!!  I have relied on this channel for lifesaving weather information available immediately 24/7, and I am NOT a happy customer now.  The bill goes up and UP, and cannot get the one CHANNEL I want!!!  I don't know what you are thinking.....from what I see online, LOTS of other customers are dissatisfied!  BRING IT BACK!!!!!!

Re: Weather Scan Channel

Weather Underground (which I hate but is only alternative to WeatherScan) is also now gone.

 

Raising prices on everything and dropping useful channels.

 

Maybe it's time we all kick Comcast to the curb.

Re: What happened to weatherscan local

The X1 Weather App has NO radar and doesn't have nearly as much info as WeatherScan had ---- so, no, the Weather App is not a true replacement.

And -- today I get an email from Xfinity Your Xfinity Weather
Preparation Guide is here
.  But they pulled WeatherScan.  Go Figure.  Plus -- if I am stuck away from home or the cable is out (imagine !) -- I can't schedule DVR recordings from my smartphone.  Lots of weather prep talk from Comcast -- but all of their actions show that they really don't care since they could fix both by returning WeatherScan and either licensing the Tivo software, buying Tivo or having the 'with love from Philidelphia' folks write a fresh scheduling module.  But no.

Re: Weather Scan Channel

Comcast is not "enhancing" its programming for customers. Comcast arrogantly ignores its customer. Comcast has a thousand useless channels but takes away Weather Scan which is loved and is so important to so many people. If Comcast actually cares about its customers it will admit its mistake, apologize and bring back Weather Scan.

I want WeatherScan Channel back - my only way to get instant local weather information whenever I need it!!!

Re: Weather Scan Channel

I miss weatherscan on 101. Why did you choose to remove it? The regular weather channel does not always have the weather on. The personnel on 61 name winter storms like jackasses and generally don't have the in depth local weather that weatherscan provided. Please bring channel 101 back, with no commercials, just the weather. Thank you.

Re: Weather Scan Channel

This was the best way to see the weather and radar without having to go to my laptop or phome. The weather channel is a joke.  I live in Plum and Iget weather for Greensburgh. It showes the U.S. Also there is very little usefull info for  our area PLEASE bring back this channel. I have a roofing co. and used that info several times a day. I have landscaper friends that also relied on the same info. Make it an add on if needed but don't just make it unavailable.

Please bring back WEATHERSCAN channel 100

We had been checking and relying on our most sufficient and trusted weather channel, WEATHERSCAN, channel 100 in our area for several years and recently discovered in November of 2017 that it no exists. So far there has been no significant or valid reason why it's discontinued. We are pleading that you reconnect this valuable, most recognized and requested channel. In our business, it is very crucial in our day-to-day tasks and has been the most accurate in reporting the weather and giving specific data. Thank you for this forum!!

Weather Channel

Xfininity, it’s not about local weather it’s about national weather events like Hurricane Erma. Without the Weather Channel we won’t get good coverage.
Your action to drop the weather Channel will make me consider cutting Xfinity cable.

Re: Weather Channel

I don't understand what you are talking about. I have never heard about Comcast dropping the main Weather Channel. They have dropped the local-based WeatherScan in most if not all areas. Also, it appears some local broadcaster or broadcasters dropped Weather Nation, which Comcast just passes on and has no control over.

Why was it removed in the first place?

Thanks
