Hi hichamt, Weather information is part of Flash Briefing. If you wish to turn it Off or enable other sources, you can do so from the Echo/Alexa Companion app. It is under Settings -> Flash Briefing. Please feel free to reach out if you need any additional help. Thank you. ~ Gautam

Thank you Gautam the issue is that using AVS, when I ask: Give me the flash news I -only- got the weather, not the BBC headlines while with the same account it's working in our Echo Should I activate something in the ASK console ? Best, Hicham

When you go here: http://alexa.amazon.com/spa/index.html#settings/flash-briefing What options are enabled? Also, to help us debug what's going on, can you send the request id? Thanks, Eric

Thank you Eric You nailed it ! I only had BBC wich is prerecorded, but nothing TTS based. When I selected "News Headlines" I finally worked. Still, I think this should also work if the user has only Voice based flash news, wich was my case. here is the request id: http://alexa.amazon.com/spa/index.html#settings/dialogs/A1BE86YEEGYC6N#1448204403575 Best Hicham
