According to AT&T Uverse, the President has activated the Emergency Action Notification system. Forcing me to watch news lol

Don't you like government control of your cable TV? Channels so good they have to be mandatory.

Reminds me of a scene out of Jericho where the only channel that could be watched was DHS's... then the EMP struck.

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
I'm in Georgia. Regular local news cut-ins didn't mention anything.

If the message was from the Fed Gov / the White House / President, local TV stations would likely not know anything anyway.

I think the way that system is set up is that "they" just take over the station and air whatever they want with no warning of the content (due to the immediate emergency or timeliness of the issue - kind of like "breaking news")

In all likeliness, they were testing the lines for a real announcement later.
Not like one of those regularly scheduled interruptions of broadcasts, but
a live test before a huge announcement.

If this is true, (and several people have conformed it already), folks,
We may be getting mega doom this morning!

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
perhaps its a dry run so when they need to really use it they know it's functional??

could be why its only affecting certain areas/cable providers??
 Quoting: Osti


Seems like it would make it pretty clear that it's a test, considering we're on very high alert, here, anyway. If it's not real, they just scared the hell out of a lot of people who have never seen a real activation of the EAS in their lifetimes.

This is the EAS Emergency Alert System that was mandated pre 2000 for all broadcasters.

This is controlled and initiated by the President of the United States.

This is not good...
 Quoting: PIR


But it's not everywhere, so I'm sure it's just a test or malfunction.

Or a hack. I've heard these systems were installed in broadcast stations and are remotely controlled - the broadcast staff can be overridden.

Unless the staff pulls the plug.

An emergency notification with no emergency?

I'm getting a message that says the President has requested that we watch our local station. It's force tuned to NBC and we can't change it. I don't see any emergencies, just the Today show. How do I shut this off? thanks.
