AccuWeather has launched the AccuWeather Network, first available on Verizon FiOS TV.

"We have coverage in virtually every other medium, and because of our expertise in digital technology, we created a channel with the look and feel of a digital device," AccuWeather CEO Barry Lee Myers said.

The network features national, regional and local weather updates provided in context, reporting on top weather news and filtering it through topics such as family, safety, lifestyle, health, travel, business and more.

"We want our channel to be something you look at, get your weather and then go back to other programming," Myers said. "It's a way to use your TV, just as you might use your tablet or phone."
