DIRECTV Launches Severe Weather Mix in Eye of Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian coverage has concluded. 

As Hurricane Ian made its way through the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and Florida, DIRECTV launched a dedicated Severe Weather Channel and separate four-channel Severe Weather Mix emergency weather mosaic to keep customers up to date on developing conditions. 

How to Watch

The standalone Severe Weather Channel is available on 361-2 on DIRECTV and 1226 (high-definition) and 226 (standard-definition) on U-verse. The Severe Weather Mix channel will launch on channel 200 and 361-1.

Severe Weather Mix

Severe Weather Channel rotates live local news coverage from broadcast stations in regions that lie within the hurricane’s path. The main goal of the Severe Weather Mix is to help family, friends, and others living in the immediately affected areas to keep apprised of developments as Hurricane Ian makes initial landfall and progresses. DIRECTV is currently working with local broadcast station owners in the area including Ft. Myers-Naples; Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota; Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne; Gainesville-Ocala; Jacksonville FL-Brunswick GA; and will continue to add others as Hurricane Ian moves through the Gulf Coast or Eastern Seaboard in coming days. 

Stay Up to Date with the Latest

The four-channel Severe Weather Mix feature round-the-clock live coverage from the Weather Channel, AccuWeather and CNN (whose Atlanta headquarters lies within the anticipated path) in addition to the Severe Weather Channel and its local coverage from participating local broadcast stations. This allows people living within the likely path of the Hurricane to view multiple resources immediately and simultaneously as Hurricane Ian moves from one city to another, potentially placing them in harm’s way.

DIRECTV launched similar efforts to assist viewers during Hurricane Ida (2021), Hurricanes Marco and Laura (2020), Hurricane Michael (2018), Hurricane Irma (2017), Superstorm Sandy (2012), among other national emergency situations. 

DIRECTV is pausing late payment charges and suspending collections until further notice for those impacted by the storm.
