THE WEATHER Channel Live Stream
No matter where you are in the world, if you want news about the weather, The Weather Channel (TWC), remains the most reliable source for weather news and information. The American pay television channel is owned by Weather Group, LLC, which is a subsidiary of Allen Media Group. Its headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia.
The weather channel live stream is well known for its weather forecasts and weather-related news and analysis. It also features documentaries and entertainment programming that are related to weather. One of its sister networks, Weatherscan, is a digital cable and satellite service that offers 24-hour automated local forecasts and radar imagery. According to a poll in September 2018, the Weather Channel was received by approximately 79.128 million households that subscribe to a pay television service throughout the United States.
The Weather Channel got its start on July 18, 1980, when television meteorologist John Coleman well known as the once chief meteorologist at ABC owned-and-operated station WLS-TV in Chicago and as a forecaster for Good Morning America, and Frank Batten, then-president of the channel’s original owner Landmark Communications created a partnership. The channel was officially launched at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 2, 1982. Since 2002, all forecasting has been done on-site in Atlanta.
Many people wonder how the channel has been so accurate with weather reporting. A lot of that is due to the fact that The Weather Channel uses special proprietary equipment that inserts information on current and future local weather conditions. They also rely on weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service, the Storm Prediction Center, and National Hurricane Center.
TWC is also well known for providing popular music to both cable and satellite viewers, in the background during some segments.

While the value of the deal has never been confirmed it is estimated that the deal was worth about $300 million. The channel’s non-television assets, which were separately sold to IBM two years prior, and were not included in the sale.
