The Weather Channel is now available to Verizon Fios TV customers on channel 611, giving viewers more choice to monitor the latest severe weather in their area.
Fios TV began delivering The Weather Channel signal to its customers the week of June 24th on channel 611 and will also launch via the Fios TV app later this fall.
“We are happy to bring Fios TV customers another trusted resource for weather information with the addition of The Weather Channel to our Fios lineup,” said Erin McPherson, Verizon’s Head of Content Strategy, Acquisitions and Programming. “Our customers are increasingly impacted by severe weather, and The Weather Channel will be a welcomed addition for our viewers,” she added.
