DOST to launch DOSTv in May

The Department of Science and Technology is set to launch cable service DOSTv in May.

DOSTv is to be a 24x7 cable weather information channel that will provide the public with accurate weather information from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and articulation of Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards' (NOAA) hourly satellite and Doppler Radar images rendered from weather sensor data.

Around 90 percent of the Philippine Cable Television Association (PCTA) franchises will be carrying the weather channel.

DOST and PCTA signed a memorandum aiming to contribute to ongoing efforts in mitigating destructive effects of natural calamities and climate change.
