Miscellaneous culture question

The other day I was listening to the Old 97s's "Big Brown Eyes" on the radio, and at the line about "calling time and temperature just for some company," I started wondering--do other countries have a phone number you can call to be told the current time and temperature? If so, how widespread is it? Is it government sponsored, or do companies sponsor it like they do here? For that matter, do most or all cities in the U.S. have a time and temperature number, or do I just think they do because there's always been a time and temperature number everywhere I've lived?

This inquiring mind really, really wants to know.
