Thumbs down The Weather Channel eliminating free weather data feed

Just a heads up as Phoenix appears to use data from The Weather Channel.

http://twcweather.com/twc40/wmws/TWC...971/w26988.php

The cheapest subscription appears to be $63/mo!

I'd like to congratulate The Weather Channel on their swift and decisive move towards complete irrelevance on the web.

Phoenix uses the SageTV apis for weather... so as long as SageTV has some negotiated terms with the Weather channel, then we'll have weather for as long as SageTV has negotiated... And if they haven't... we'll have to figure something out.

We are aware of the weather.com change and are looking into an alternative. Unfortunately, I can't promise that there will be a replacement by the time the weather.com data feed ends. I'll provide an update about it when I know more.

FYI, check with Dean over at CQC. Same issue, perhaps there's some form of mutual solution.

I've been looking into free weather feeds for worldwide locations... if anyone has any pointers towards a good source, it would be appreciated.

I didn't dig too deep but this has a free api for personal and commercial use. And also a premium feed.

World Weather Online

Could we include local radar in the Sage weather information and or include the ability for user to check a option to show local radar?

Thanks

Perhaps a plugin? This worked great in its day..
Weather Report Suite

Best of all, you could customize it, and it even had animation.

We're just trying to keep from losing weather altogether. I don't think extra features are on the list right now.

That plugin also gets its feed from weather.com, the same source that is shutting off the feed.

What we need is a completely new source of weather data or for Sagoogle to pony up the subscription fee.

what about not for profit services...Environment Canada comes to mind, but I don't know how to check their data

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/canada_e.html

or BBC? http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/100

or Yahoo..

Google has an unofficial weather API - http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=ZIP_CODE

Yeah, I've known about that one, but the forecast is very limited, so I was trying to find something better.

I take it then that The World Weather Online one http://www.worldweatheronline.com/ that gplasky posted was limited also?

That one is free to be used, but there is a 500 request per hour limit & I think all the SageTV installs would go way beyond that, so I'm guessing they would balk.

I'm still looking into alternatives. I may not be able to get weather switched by the end of this month when weather.com shuts off their feed, but we still want to update it to something else at some point.
