AccuWeather Launches 24/7 Network With “Superior Accuracy”

AccuWeather has launched a new 24/7 TV channel with a strong online component called the AccuWeather Network.

The new network features national, regional and local weather updates provided in context, reporting on top weather news and applying it to peoples’ lives with topics such as family, safety, lifestyle, health, travel, business and more. The company also announced that AccuWeather content with its "Superior Accuracy" technology is now available on Verizon FiOS TV.

“We have coverage in virtually every other medium, and because of our expertise in digital technology, we created a channel with the look and feel of a digital device,” AccuWeather Chief Executive Officer Barry Lee Myers said.

“We want our channel to be something you look at, get your weather and then go back to other programming,” Myers said. “It's a way to use your TV, just as you might use your tablet or phone.”
