Local on the 8s is celebrating #1 Boss Day. What is up with the pointless holidays thing?

The weather channel, where everyday's a holiday.

Also has anyone noticed the new SWC tone, or rather one very low un-attention grabbing tone followed by Cantore's voice?

Noticed a new 8's greeting screen and new text during the locals on the IS but the New Bedford IS2 HD is down.

Seems your IS2 goes out when mine does. Mine is out as well. Must be getting an update ready.

It did come back online but it remains unchanged, but the Summary on the IntelliStar has been removed for a hashtag screen at the end of the locals.

They would get rid of the one thing that was actually new and useful (Summary Page) on the IntelliStar and replace it with something that's new and useless(A Hashtag). :wall:

TWC IntelliSTAR with updated graphics- Astoria, OR- Oct. 21, 2014- 8:18AM PDT


I'm not all too impressed with the updated graphics.  :no:  Also, the hashtag screen is missing on my end (just cuts to the satellite LF).

Have to agree with Tavores on the hashtag screen: it is useless. IMO TWC could have put something else in the time frame, like the Local Weather ID number or even increase the timing on the 7-day forecast. But for a useless hashtag screen? Terrible!  :hammer:

My IS2 is down as well in Baton Rouge. TWCHD as a whole is down. Not impressed with a hashtag graphic cutting into what's already a shortened LF. Show the radar screen for that extra second.

What updated graphics?! :blink:  OK, yes, I do see that they changed the format and animations of the opening screen (and honestly, I preferred the clock to the left - I think we know it's the LOT8s already!), but other than that, everything else looks unchanged.  I'm hoping this isn't the "refresh" that's being talked about.

Oh, and yes, instead of adding more weather information like I am sure many people would want, how about we remove some and replace it with a useless hashtag screen?  Maybe that screen is a temporary placement for something neat to come.  One can only hope... :(

Because you too can tweet the weather in your area using #ItsAmazingOutThere, hopefully it's a temporary thing. Why would they remove the clock?

Yours is kinda borked - it shouldn't have the what was the original opening screen, it should go straight to the new one. That's probably why you don't have the hashtag screen - which doesn't add much anyway.

My IS2 forecast is showing a 36 Hour Forecast (Tonight, Tomorrow, Tomorrow Night) instead of a 24 Hour Forecast.

So that's why my IS2 was out yesterday.

I'm pretty disappointed they cut out the summary screen, since it was useful to me. Why would they replace it with that hashtag screen?

Traffic is missing for me. I'm also seeing 36 hours now which is nice.

Glad to see the summary screen go. It was useless IMO. But replacing it with a hashtag screen doesn't make sense.

These new changes are the most you guys are getting at least for now. I was going to post a little preview of this but TWC launched ahead of schedule :')

Really wish the Metro Page would return like shown in the boston mockup.
