Yet another digital channel is going dark. NBC Universal is dropping the 24-hour weather channel that it broadcast for free on a digital "subchannel."

Local TV stations gained the ability to transmit added channels with the expanded bandwidth that comes with the conversion to digital broadcast TV. But nobody has figured out how to make money with the channels. Several ventures, including The Tube, have foundered before they found enough viewers.
