AccuWeather Broadcast Feed (ABF)

AccuWeather Broadcast Feed delivers the high-value content your audience wants – accurate and complete local weather programming. It is a customizable, flexible solution for digital sub-channels. You can run ABF 24/7 for fully automated simplicity, or use it as a supplement to your local programming.

ABF offers you a wide range of programming such as sports weather, breaking weather, travel forecasts and more. You can receive enhanced severe weather tools and automated alerts, informative and timely SD and HD videos, engaging personalities and expert weather reports and revenue-building advertising opportunities.

When severe weather impacts only a small area of your market, you can still deliver instant wall-to-wall coverage with the AccuWeather Broadcast Feed without interrupting regular programming on your main channel. Severe weather watches and warnings are automatically and prominently displayed, with maps and text, within seconds of being issued. When severe weather affects a large portion of your viewing area, you can easily go live from your weather center for simultaneous coverage.

Already deployed in markets of all sizes, including affiliates from every major network, including ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, ABF is the proven way to stay connected to viewers with the accurate, local weather they demand. 

Weather Team

WeatherTeam is a complete, customized ready-to-air weather show, delivered via satellite, fiber optic or Internet, whenever you want. It is available in English and Spanish, with or without the AccuWeather brand name, and includes the precise content, look and length you specify.

Our graphics team will work with you to design an advanced, modern look around your branding. As weather is the most sought-after content for advertisers to sponsor, we will also work with you to include ideal placement of sponsor’s logo.

WeatherTeam is the easiest and most affordable path to fully localized and customized weather presentations that draw viewers and attract advertising revenue. Many stations use WeatherTeam on weekends, or when their own weather talent is unavailable. And WeatherTeam can be your back-up, on short notice, in cases of illness, equipment failure, or other emergencies.

On days when severe weather is the news, WeatherTeam can give your station an angle no one else is covering! Use live WeatherTeam cut-ins to supplement your station’s own local experts with nationally-known weather commentators and the same recognized expert meteorologists used for this purpose by national networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News Channel, PBS, CNN and CBN.
