The Weather Channel isn't just another TV network. It is a public safety resource, and a partner with government, humanitarian and rescue organizations at the local, state and federal levels.

How can you help?

The Weather Channel isn't just another TV network. It is a public safety resource, and a partner with government, humanitarian and rescue organizations at the local, state and federal levels. The consequences of removing it from 20 million households could be detrimental to public safety. That's why Congress and DIRECTV need to understand the risks to your local community. Urge DIRECTV to do the right thing. Tell them there is no substitute for The Weather Channel.

N & S, The weather channel is a vital source during storms, and even just to know the daily weather can be quite important when sending kids to school (raincoat?, etc.) Don't take this vital source away from us. Thank you, Kathy.

Noted and email sent to both my senators, although unfortunately they both seem very anti-environmental legislation SIGH. Direct TV does this over and over to force concessions in their programming and costs. Hate that firm. Has an "F" customer service rating, and wouldn't mind seeing them disappear.

Odd, seeing this petition just as a storm pounds outside--and just after watching The Weather Channel with my family to keep us updated on the storm's progress, And some people think this service isn't needed?

We watch the Weather Channel every day. Especially when bad weather threatens, we watch to see what we need to do. We need to keep the Weather Channel on Direct TV. Linda and Larry McLarty - Tallapoosa, Ga 30176

If Direct TV doesn't keep the Weather Channel, then I suppose we will just have to go with the provider that DOES have the Weather Channel! Gerald McLarty 256-463-4200

I can't understand why they'll take a channel that is very important to every person in this world but keep things that have nothing to do with reality. If this is a new look for the new year it is not looking good. This is just another money ploy, as for me and my family we are living pay check to pay check and the cost of living keeps going up and it gets harder and harder to just get by! Directv needs to know there will be a lot of customers upset and will find another provider with out this aggravation.

Of all the channels DirectTV has WHY would you decide to cancel the weather channel? Its a vital channel with vital information for a lot of people. I mean, come on! Why don't you cancel some channels like wrestling or certain sports. I think you're making a huge mistake DirectTV. You should rethink this. :\
