(State College, PA - September 12, 2008) - AccuWeather.com, the World's Weather Authority®, and Newscom Hellas, a software systems integrator for the broadcast industry, today announced a partnership to integrate AccuWeather.com content into Newscom's channel offering, WTV (www.weathertv.gr).

Featuring AccuWeather.com's highly localized, accurate, and reliable weather forecasts, as well as a range of entertainment, lifestyle, and severe weather coverage, WTV's programming is specifically tailored for Greece's land, sea, and air weather conditions.

"In the age of weather uncertainty, we are very excited to work with AccuWeather.com in providing reliable weather information to meet the needs of the local market, something which up to this time, has been significantly lacking here in Greece," Director of Operations, Kostas Varnavopoulos said. "Greece's geographic location, unique landscape, and thousands of islands make it a very complex country to cover weather-wise. Only with AccuWeather.com's breadth of global data and forecasting experience are we able to give viewers a clear picture of what they can expect."

"AccuWeather.com is particularly pleased to bring reliable weather forecasts to the nation of Greece," Jim Candor Senior Vice President of New Media for AccuWeather.com said.

Broadcast in Greek, WTV provides a wealth of accurate real-time weather data and forecast services for Greece and Cyprus and all major cities from around the globe. Looking to the future, WTV is a pioneer channel in the emerging Greek digital broadcast market, treating its viewers to an attractive wide-screen presentation and in HD (where available).
