Remark made that wasn't appropriate.

On the AMHQ morning show on July 5th, they were talking about when the first bikini came out and during the conversation Stephanie Abrams made a very distasteful remark referring to men and their bikinis. She referred to it as a banana in a hammock. I think that was to personal to be said on national TV. I love the weather channel, not as much with all the special shows that are being aired now. Some of them are interesting, but a lot are boring. Weather has always been a interest of mine, maybe that is why Stephanie's remark was offensive to me. Why so have to submit at least 100 words before your complaint can be submitted?

Waiting

General comment- I used to watch the channel back yonder when there was cool music and no other programs of or ads. I got disenchanted when hour long "weather related" programs started along with ads and such. I went to watching local weather on the Time-Warner when it was created because I TURNED THE CHANNEL ON TO SEE THE WEATHER!!- soon enough to actually do me some good. Your (interrupting!) programs can be interesting but I want to see the WEATHER! -get it- the WEATHER! without waiting for 20-30 min. (seemingly unpredictable) to see the radar (amongst other things). In half an hour most of the weather events that I tuned in to see are OVER WITH!! (I can look out the window, duh) Since my local channel (thanks Spectrum!) has been discontinued, I am back to watching again, only because of lack of choice. As a matter of fact, it seems that some of the extraneous programs are re-runs from years ago. If I can find another channel that actually gives me the info I want WHEN I WANT IT (I can live with every 8 minutes), you can bet I'll be watching it instead of the (SOMETIMES Weather Channel). I would guess (actually, I'm not guessing) that the almighty dollar is responsible, but as soon as I can I'm going elsewhere. I'm sitting here in Kansas in the dark with really severe weather overhead and I can't get any info as to what's ACTUALLY HAPPENING NOW. If I was in tornado situation (which could happen without my knowledge, due to lack of timely info), I might as well look out the window. PLEASE, PLEASE cut the ***, or change the name to the "Sometimes Weather Channel". Having said that, when you actually focus on the CURRENT weather I'll be a regular watcher again. Until then, if I see an hour-long extraneous program I just look out the window. I realize I'm peeing up a rope, but it's free except for my time. Thanks for listening. Hope it doesn't bounce off.

Just travelled to dominican repunlic. All week forecast was 80-90% chance if rain, storms... we even thought to cancel our trip. It turned out to be all sunny, no rain at all. I guess you cant trust any company anymore since they are driven by adds. I suspect weather...

Weather forecasting is the one last business you can be wrong and still be OK. However I'd agree that there's too many ads on the Weather Channel's website. Too many to the point that it becomes unusable sometimes.

You don't have to be subjected to ads, pop-ups, etc. while trying to view a webpage.

There are many free programs that let you surf ad and pop-up free depending on the browser you use. The first thing to do is stop using Internet Explorer and go to Firefox or Chrome. Then, get free add-ons like Blur, AdBlock, Disconnect or UBlock Origin.

I use Firefox with three of those mentioned and rarely encounter ads or pop-ups----they are blocked. Do some research.

Especially on the weekend need to know what's going on right now not some *** weather related TV shows or a million *** commercials every few seconds not paying to see that *** change it or go off the air sick and tired of this stuff there could be a tornado and till we knew anything it would be to late to do anything to prepare for it

Short Review on January 25, 2017

I have watched the weather channel since it started. I have always loved it. Today I am watching and one of the news castors made a negitive comment about our new president. You just lost a viewer. Politics have no place here. Just talk about the weather. Also your terms of use below "pissed customer" are not cute. Do you have a child running your station?

Lately the Accuracy of the weather Channel and Weather forecasts in general is horrible. On a scale of 1-10 I would give it a negative 3. Half of the time the forecasts don't even agree within the site. For instance The main page might say 80% chance of rain, and you...

Weather channel should not put out bogus information that caused schools in south to close April 5th. This caused a lot of problems for everyone. It barely rained and thundered a few times.

Ibm Weatherchannel Mobile Application Review

Had to watch an advertisement for 90 seconds before I could see a weather map on my phone. This app is totally infiltrated with advertisements and takes forever to load news items.

Only the East/Southeast

I live in the Pacific Northwest where we have active weather as much as anyone else. We have large population centers and lots of folks commuting or recreating in our region. TWC always, always starts every segment with what's happening either in the northern east coast region or the south. Once they're done with that, they glance over the rest of the country. By and large weather in the U.S. flows from west to east. Many, many times it would make more sense to talk about what's happening in the PNW first, but TWC always yaks on excessively about the east/southeast. I'm not ***, there's way more density in the east/southeast and a bigger viewing market in those regions, but those places all have really excellent local weather coverage. It used to be that I could count on TWC not being as biased and if I was in need of knowing the weather around my region or the country I could easily get that info at TWC. Nope, not anymore. Remember, Locals On The 8s, or The National 7 Day Forecast at 20 passed or 20 before the hour? Those don't exist anymore so, now if you tune in at anytime and live in the east/southeast you're covered, if you live anywhere else, you'll need to look elsewhere for any weather info or wait through, endless segments of east/south coverage, happy talk, or dumb series shows... Also, this channel has lost it's soul. It used to be about weather. Now, it's full of commercials, more commercials than any other channel, goofy unappealing happy talk segments, and *** shows that are never preempted by super dangerous or severe weather in any region. They've completely lost their way and are about as useful to a consumer as QVC is now!

What a Joke

Try loading the online version and it takes like forever. I have a 50 mps connection and the dam page is filled with so many freakn ads it is not funny and by golly they make sure all the ads load first before important weather related news, like LOCAL MAPS !!! What good is a site if all they care about is collecting money for the ads and not doing what they claim, report the weather !!!!!???????!!!!!! Blocking this site.............................. Will never even attempt to visit it again because I am sick and tired of ads, bad enough we get stuck watching them on the tube, but th internet too?????? Go to hateys Weather Channel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Weather Channel Application Software Review

I quit watching the "link" part of their app since they started playing ads and replaying and replaying and replaying the same ads at 2x or 3x the volume of the actual news stories. You can't hear the news stories without annoying other people with the ads or constantly adjusting the volume. It's sad they think this volume trick works

The Weather Channel Weather Forecast Review

They have no clue what's coming your way. It was suppose to rain all day today but nope nothing. Tomorrow 100% rain but I feel like they make these huge salaries but I could do a better job. Too many ads and just *** I don't rely on any forecasts anymore. A day late and a dollar short.
