WeatherNation local on PlutoTV


Recommended Posts

Scrolling through the guide on PlutoTV, I noticed the logo for WeatherNation actually read "WeatherNation Los Angeles" (my location), and upon selecting the channel I saw that it featured a localized L-bar with static, local time that cycled through cities in the region with current conditions and a 5-day forecast, along with a "local weather on the 7's" in the video feed (which isn't *quite* on the 7's given the stream lag). I compared it with the WeatherNation app on my Roku, and their app (while offering a local forecast on their landing screen) still only offered the national WN feed.

 

While I don't love the fact that WN is a corporate sibling to "Real America's Voice", I don't exactly love FOX Weather's sister channel either (and don't get me started on the Byron Allen scripted courtroom shows...), moreover I do appreciate all the options we now have for weather information, particularly in this case, localized weather info. I know localized versions of WN are available sporadically OTA,  but I'm happy to see this wider distribution via means such as Pluto. 

 

I imagine most of the major cities will have localized WN available on Pluto, but I'm curious as to what some of you might see when checking it out for yourselves.

I tried this on the Roku streaming player in the living room, and found only the national feed.

 

That may be because this is a small market (DMA 132), though.
