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.
Thought that they were between 60-90 seconds, so at least 6 minutes per hour but still the poster's original claim that Comcast's version of TWC being so vastly superior was pure bunk.
The whole point for me about LOT8 is to be able to quickly use the STB and remote and get LOT8 or LOT8 style functionality. Ch. 227 just does not cut it.
