The Weather Channel vs DirecTV
In January 2014, The Weather Channel was removed from the DirecTV when the two cannot come to an agreement. The Weather Channel demanded a pay rise from DirecTV. At that time, The Weather Channel received 13 cents per subscriber per month. When DirecTV didn’t agree to this, The Weather Channel was removed from the DirecTV network.
After three months, the issues had been resolved and The Weather Channel was back to its usual channel number 362.
WeatherNation vs DirecTV
Four years later, the fight between weather channels and DirecTV continues. In 2018, DirecTV removed the WeatherNation channel and installed the AccuWeather channel on number 361.
As of August 1, 2018, AccuWeather is available on channel number 361 replacing WeatherNation. The reason for this exchange of channels was not released by both. Since then, AccuWeather is available.
News and weather are user preferred channels. If DirecTV continues doing this, they will lose some of its regular subscribers.
