The channel is available to Cablevision’s digital cable customers and features more than 550 traffic cameras capturing current conditions throughout the tri-state area, an “other regions” tab allowing users to get local news outside of their immediate area, and live dual Doppler coverage for an accurate view of local weather. According to Cablevision and News 12, the channel is also easier to navigate due to a more functional design.
“News 12 Interactive is an important extension of our linear networks, leveraging the power of digital cable to deliver information to viewers when and how they want it,” said Patrick Dolan, president of News 12 Networks. “This newly enhanced channel features meaningful improvements that make the service faster and easier to navigate and gives users access to news in their local community, as well as stories from across all News 12 areas for the first time.”
News 12 Networks is owned and operated by Rainbow Media Holdings, the latter of which is a subsidiary of Cablevision.
