Partnering up with The Future Group in 2018, The Weather Channel set out to bring viewers inside the storm, educating them on the true dangers of the natural world. The immersive mixed reality segments, created using the Frontier powered by Unreal Engine, have seen more than 940 million earned media impressions and has given the network a new way to communicate with viewers prior to severe weather events. In one case, a segment viewed by millions of viewers preparing for Hurricanes Florence and Michael informed coastal viewers of the true power of a storm surge, encouraging more to evacuate sooner.
