DIRECTV in Battle with The Weather Channel
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The Weather Channel wants its viewers to urge congressional intervention in its business dispute with DirecTV. It argues it’s a public safety issue if the satellite system pulls the network off the air for nearly 20 million viewers. TWC’s contract with DirecTV expires at the end of Monday. DirecTV says there are other ways its customers can get weather forecasts.
