Currently we have North American sports (NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB) and finance data includes currencies, indices, commodities and Dow Jones. More leagues and finance options are available on demand. As for weather cities, we currently have all the world capitals, along with major cities in the US and Canada. Again, more can be added as requested. “
