The Weather Channel To Serve Live Coverage To Your HDTV During High-Impact Storms


One other notable tidbit of The Weather Channel‘s on-demand app just pushed out to Apple TV, is that the application will reportedly also serve live weather reports (and coverage) into the living room, during periods of extremely severe weather.

In an update to his original article on the new channel’s availability and its on-demand feature, AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka explains that the channel also has a built-in mode for providing a “live feed,” which only activates in severe weather circumstances.

“In some cases — most likely a storm with national impact or interest — the Weather Channel app will provide a live feed of the pay channel, as well, I’m told.”
