Weather Information Network was a Filipino weather and public information satellite television channel based in Makati City. It is owned and operated by MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund through TV5.[1] With partnership of New Zealand-based Metra Weather, the channel will bring projected storm tracks, wind direction, rain volume, water conditions, regional and provincial weather, and seven-day forecasts as well as other information related to weather.

TV5 earlier teams up with Metra since 2010 to bring advanced computer-based weather visualization system, locally known as Aksyon Weather Center, making the station's weather forecasts ahead of its competitors and recognized by agencies such as PAGASA.[2][3]

It was announced that Weather Information Network will be ceased broadcast effective by 23 December 2013.
