This is an interesting move by Screenfeed, which has been quickly building up a business in providing a different spin on content feeds for screen networks.
The Minneapolis company (disclosure: a writing client) is effectively changing the perceived rules for getting weather content from a content provider, like Accuweather, by offering feeds that don’t have the provider’s logo slapped on every screen.
