Weather Network Not Showing Local Information

I have noticed since about 7pm last night that The Weather Network Channel 505 is not showing the local weather information. I guess something is wrong with the overlay.

Would that be LOCAL weather in Burnaby BC or perhaps Truro Nova Scotia or perhaps Yukon somewhere? You do not provide a location in your header or your screen profile. Makes it pretty difficult to agree or deny "same thing here last night".

I'm having the same issue. If I press select I can bring up local weather, however it appears to be from yesterday. The time is not correct for the "current" weather. Without pressing select the local weather does not overlay on top any more.

Yep there is a problem here too on channel 130, the french weather channel for Quebec. Every 10th minute I usually get a series of graphics but not in the last 2-3 days. I remember this happened awhile back and it was fixed.

Also heard there might be a weather Network in HD soon not sure which provider though.

Rogers carries the HD version(National sat Feed)-english. I'm not sure of other providers.

Location doesn't seem to matter it looks like it is a Bell TV National Problem.

I am experiencing the same problem in the Pembroke/Petawawa area since last night. Chatted with a Bell representative - they seemed to know nothing about it nor how to fix it.

We have spoken with our technicians and have been informed that this is a Bell Expressvu issue -- and that Bell will not be able to fix the glitch until Monday.

Tried changing primary city and re-booting, suspected it was an issue at Bell, as the Weather Network was issuing many storm and tornado warnings. We had tornado warnings last night, but nothing appeared in the warnings banner.

By pressing select you are able to still get the forecast info, but how accurate it is maybe suspect! As again no tornado warnings appeared there either!

This may all be part of Nimiq 6 prep work, but BELL should have told us. On the Nimiq 6 thread there is talk of Nimiq 3 on the Move, meaning that 91 was covered by 3 satellites not 2, N1, N2 and N3 which probably carried the weather Network info.

I think there is a storm front on the horizon, (or Clarke belt) they're going to have to tighten the "belt" to get all those satellites aligned...

Now this is getting interesting. On another DHC thread we have people reporting that they have been told by Bell CSRs that the special local forecast overlays are "history" and aren't going to be offered any more. I wonder whom we should believe?

I hope not,but Bell got rid of the interactive features on TSN,RDS,RDI so I wouldn't be surprised if they remove this feature as well.
