What happened to The Weather Channel being 24/7 Weather News?

Question by Niko: What happened to The Weather Channel being 24/7 Weather News?
When did they start showing movies? I can understand March of the Penguins but Misery. It was good for a laugh or scare…are news and weather a thing of the past? I miss Ted Turner CNN. Now it’s all showbiz and entertainment. Do I need to upgrade and continue to feed the goldmine of cable to get my news and weather?!
All nice answers! Thanks!

Yeah, it was funny when they played Misery.They’ll be showing movies and reality shows on CNN soon enough.(JK).But, that was pretty random for them to show Misery on the weather channel.

    I guess they were looking for a new source of income. Maybe broadcasting news 24/7 when people can get it on the web (when they’re not home) meant fewer viewers. Fewer viewers could bring down the price of a bid for commercials in time slots. This means less money for the network, and good ‘ole capitalism doesn’t like smaller profits! I remember a few years ago every night around 9 (mountain time) I tuned in to the Weather Channel to see those shows about natural disasters. That was all that I watched the Weather Channel for.

    Misery is a good film, yet definitely doesn’t related to the Weather Channel. A different movie, such as The Day After Tomorrow would be more appropriate for the network.

    Because Misery shows what COULD happen to a famous or everyday person who wrecks in a blizzard? STAY home or off the roads during blizzards!

    Weather is driven by air pressure (temperature and moisture) differences between one place and another. These pressure and temperature differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow.,
