Locale weather on DirecTV Accweather canal

We have changed programming and only have Accuweather channel to get weather info. We pressed the Red button to get our local weather. Well no local weather. I looked on the net, and found out that your supposed to program the first time you click on the channel. Well that didn't happen. We now need to know how we can do it.

Hello @KimMcc,


Have you gone into your Genie settings menu and accessed the Apps tab? You may need to enter your zip code in order for this feature to work.


Additionally, you will want to make sure that your receiver has a working internet connection. Check out this great support article on TV Apps On DIRECTV. Toward the bottom of this article you will see a section labeled Troubleshoot TV Apps. We hope this helps!
