History and operations

The Weather Company started as The Weather Channel in 1982. In 2012, the company created a broader holding company replaced the word "Channel" with "Company" to better reflect their growing lineup of digital products.[3]

The Weather Company was previously owned by a consortium made up of The Blackstone Group, Bain Capital, and NBCUniversal. That consortium sold The Weather Company's product and technology assets to IBM on January 29, 2016, but retained possession of The Weather Channel cable network until March 2018, when it was sold to Entertainment Studios.[2] As part of the 2016 spin-off, the Bain/Blackstone/NBCUniversal consortium entered into a long-term licensing agreement with IBM for use of its weather data and "The Weather Channel" name and branding.[4][5][6]
