Back in June 2018 Sling TV temporarily dropped Local now. At the time Sling TV issued a statement saying that it was a technological issue that caused the channel to vanish. Now Sling TV has readded the popular Local Now channel.
So what is Local Now? The Weather Channel’s Local Now provides localized updates relevant to 207 markets (think LA, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, Tallahassee, etc.), in partnership with some of the most trusted news sources across the U.S. including The Weather Channel, the Associated Press, SportRadar, TrafficLand, and INRIX. Its localized content cycles on a short loop that’s refreshed at the top of every hour.
Local Now was first added to Sling TV back in March 2016. At the time, Sling TV was one of the first major services to carry Local Now. Recently the new owners of The Weather Channel announced plans to relaunch Local Now and has struck new deals with content providers as they slowly build up the content offered on Local Now.
