Would you rather have a LDL or not?
« on: March 15, 2016, 07:51:23 PM »
On the live stream for The Weather Channel online. (weather.com/live) There is no ldl and there is no commercials it just has the radar during commercials. Would you rather have them implement a local weather ldl and forecast? Or, would you want them to just put the national feed in, or would you like to have them keep it the way it is?
On a lot of the cable apps TWC is no longer available.

I'd like to see the local ldl used during on air segments, during programming. The on air ldl includes traffic, an air quality report, and a pollen report. Theses are missing during original programming, or when the ldl is glitchy, or missing, and it uses the national one. They, for whatever reason, keep it going during WU, even on the late night repeats. But in a more simple answer, the local ldl for sure.

Yes!  A local LDL is one of the things that makes TWC what it is.  (was?)
