If you're a masochist, you can opt into this otherwise retired service from the Settings, but I'm staying far, far away.

For instance, during my testing, I watched a 30-second feature about a toddler who was born without a nose.
In between all this weather information are panels for Videos and Weather News, the latter of which are just The Weather Channel's news stories.
Readers familiar with The Weather Channel's unique mix of pithy, breathless journalism will not be surprised that most of the video content has nothing to do with weather.
Perhaps The Weather Channel has some peculiar views on New York geography.
The developers tell me this issue will soon be addressed.
