Weatherscan not being offered in Shamrock Lakes, Indiana
« on: June 24, 2016, 08:36:07 PM »
Shamrock Lakes, Indiana is a Suburb of Hartford City, Indiana and I just moved here 2 weeks ago to find out that Weatherscan is not offered here  :cry3: I was so happy to get Weatherscan today, but I found out that they don't offer it in Shamrock Lakes  :cry3: I have the Xfinity X1 Entertainment Operating System for my TV

I thought TWC discontinued Weatherscan?

As of yesterday, I still have WeatherScan. Maybe your XFINITY headend doesn't offer it.

As far as I know, Frontier FiOS still carries Weatherscan both in Seattle and in Portland. Recently I've also discovered that in the northeastern Oregon town of Elgin, the local cable provider there, known as Elgin TV Association, carries Weatherscan on channel 11, though surprisingly not The Weather Channel itself.

Comcast is phasing out Weatherscan, I lost mine in 2013. I've heard from someone at my local Comcast headend that they will try to get rid of it by 2020.

UPDATE: I learned that Shamrock Lakes is not a suburb of Hartford City, it is it's own town with a Hartford City zip code, and i have learned that Comcast is phasing out Weatherscan.  :cry3:

We knew this was coming at some point, though. They system has been "frozen in time" since before the HD launch, if I remember correctly. Plus, WATT makes a lot of the WeatherScan product redundant (at least on the surface). Yes, I know there are products not featured or offered on WATT, and that certain viewers don't actually see weather "all the time" but it's close enough that they most likely have no qualms about phasing it out.

I agree, but Weatherscan is surprisingly popular in areas where it's still offered. I remember Evan saying on here that ratings for it on his cable system were above ESPN at one point. That's pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

I think Weatherscan will be around for a while, and TWC will probably keep the data feed and everything else for it running until the IS units start bursting into flames, or they go ahead and kill it off themselves - that would be my guess.

The key here,  regarding ratings, is when were they allegedly above ESPN? I'd wager it wasn't recent. Ratings even from a year ago are less valuable than current ones, in this case.

This was last July, though, so yeah, the ratings from then are practically worthless.

I do agree with you that TWC could kill it off one day, but I wonder if it's more of a hassle shutting it down than it is to just keep it running...
