Reckon he's got five accounts, because we've had at least five people confirm?
 Quoting: Revbo™


Ever hear of proxy servers?

If its so fucking confirmed how come theres no pictures or video?bsflag
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43491069


Yes, I have heard of proxy servers, but we've got registered members with histories confirming, too. Give it a minute before you just up and call bullshit. It hasn't been very long, and someone says he already has pics.

Hey OP, when your tv changed, do you remember it also saying something like …leave phone lines open for emergency communication… I don't remember exactly because I thought it was just the routine annoying loud buzz that makes you click the enter key to make it go away… there was no buzz, just the message

My daughter was actually watching a recording of Paw Patrol when this happened in Austin. So, now the message came up, white house, eam, blah blah and went away after it changed to local NBC. But now I can't use any of the uverse features to change channel, etc. I've turned on and off several times. I guess I"ll have to do the hard boot. It appears to be a test on UVERSE in ATL and AUS.

No, it is quite real, but appears to be a Uverse thing only. That said, the message does in fact say that this is being done on behalf of the White House, they are force tuning us to channel 4 (the propaganda channel), and that we should not make phone calls unless an emergency.

The only way to change the channel is to turn the tv off and back on; however, it quickly "force tunes" back to the stupid Today Show.

Maybe it's time to switch back to Xfinity.
Within the surreal depths of "reality" lies the truth.

"This is an Emergency Action Notification. Your channel has been force tuned to receive the Emergency Alert Message."


That sure sounds like the real deal. Every other time, in my 37 years on this earth, it has not force tuned, and it always starts off with "This is a test..."

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
I'm in ATL- AT&T - and the same thing happened to me - I was watching a recording of American Horror Story when i was forced off to the Today Show on NBC. I can't even bring up the Guide or press other buttons to change the channel. I wish they would have a real message on the local channel - they are freaking me out.It said the alert and forced tune to local programming was White House mandated. I turned my TV off then on again and the original message explaining what is happening comes up.

STILL WAITING FOR THE MESSAGE!!! Come on Government, get it together!
