The only difference between Comcast's Weather Channel and U-Verse's is the five or so minutes each hour that Local on the Eights (LOT8) that Comcast has and U-Verse doesn't. Do you know something about the other 55 minutes each hour, that is different?
I think that would be 12 minutes of LOT8 and 48 minutes of other identical content. Every hour has 6 eights, and the period dedicated to LOT8 is 2 minutes, I believe. 6 x 2 = 12.
But, that doesn't make your point less valid: If what you are watching TWC for is LOT8's, there are much better ways to get it that don't involve waiting an average of 5 minutes for it to start a cycle.
I'm very happy with http://www.nws.noaa.gov myself.
