The CRTC approved the acquisition in 1993. Following talks with Landmark Communcations, The Weather Channel was brought on as a minority shareholder in 1996.

Following the sale of The Weather Company to IBM in 2015, Pelmorex Media Inc. acquired Weather Group Television’s 49% stake in the company, shifting complete ownership to Pelmorex Management Inc.[1]
