NBC Subtracts Weather Plus

NBC will reportedly phase out Weather Plus, its 4-year-old digital cable network that features local and national weather 24/7. The service airs on digital cable systems nationwide and on the digital channels of some NBC affiliates, including Washington's NBC4 (WRC-TV). Weather Plus content also appears on the Web sites of select NBC affiliates, including nbc4.com.

Steve Capus, president of NBC News, says the move would have come even without NBC Universal's acquisition of The Weather Channel, finalized last month.
