The weather site produced in iMODE and WML 1.2, available for MOVISTAR subscribers was completely written in Spanish. It has AccuWeather.com® by Telemet content -including current conditions, Hour-by-Hour™ forecasts, maps and satellite images from Spain and the World.

Subscribers can access the service by a monthly subscription or by a pay per access method. The WAP site can be access through MOVISTAR’s eMoción.
