DIRECT TV Rapid City Interactive Weather Service


Direct TV local provider WIREFREE USA in Rapid City states that Direct TV has announced the launch of new interactive weather services for Direct TV interactive customers.  Customers now have multiple methods for receiving vital local weather information from The Weather Channel (TWC).  New services include a severe weather alert product, zip code-specific weather information during the popular "Local on the 8s" segments, a "Local on Demand" TV service available while watching TWC and through the newly-designed DIRECTV ACTIVE portal.

The new interactive local weather services, which launched in October on Direct TV, include:

      Alert Ticker - For certain severe weather conditions, TWC viewers will see the Alert Ticker appear at
      the bottom of their screen.  This ticker will give them information on the current weather alert and
      provide a link to the "Local on Demand" application to get more information.

      "Local on the 8s" Application - Direct TV viewers of The Weather Channel can now view the popular
      "Local on the 8s" segments for their specific locale.  Presented six times each hour, viewers can see
      current conditions, radar maps, details for the day's forecast and the seven-day forecast automati-
      cally for their local area.

      "Local on Demand" Application - While watching TWC, Direct TV viewers can access a menu of
      interactive weather features for their zip code, including current conditions, the five-day forecast,
      regional radar maps, weather alerts and weather for up to five other cities they can "save" as
      favorites - all while continuing to watch live TWC programming on the same screen.  In addition,
      Direct TV customers will be able to access localized weather information for more than 40,000
      zip code locations across the United States.

      DIRECTV ACTIVE Application - The Weather Channel is now the featured provider of weather 
      content on the newly designed DIRECTV ACTIVE portal providing similar weather information
      detailed in the "Local on Demand' application.  Viewers can access this application by pressing
      the ACTIVE button on the remote.

For more information on this new interactive weather service, please call WIREFREE USA at 1-888-441-7233.
