Default Weather Channel: Studio HD In June

The channel is renovating its entire operation.
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (January 23, 2008) -- The Weather Channel says it will begin broadcasting its studio programs in High-Definition on June 2.

The network launched a high-def simulcast channel last September, but it largely consists of standard-def programming. The Weather Channel had not completed a studio renovation in time for the high-def launch.

But TWC said today that its new 12,500-square-foot HD facility will be completed this month. By early May, sets will be in place for the start of studio rehearsals.

And on June, the channel will go live with Your Weather Today and Evening Edition in high-def. The two programs are the channel's daily mainstays.

The Weather Channel HD has signed carriage agreements with six top TV providers: Charter Communications, Comcast Cable, Cox Communications, DIRECTV, Dish Network and Time Warner Cable, among others.

"The fact that all six top distributors are on board to provide The Weather Channel HD to their customers attests to the value of TWC HD in satisfying the growing public demand for HD programming," said Becky Powhatan, executive vice president for distribution and business affairs and general counsel for The Weather Channel Companies.

Powhatan said the Weather Channel will offer all shows in high-def by the end of 2008

Saw a commercial last night, advertising their NEW HD offering. Anyone know if Mediacom plans to offer this in family basic?

I know I can't ever get answers from their customer support.
