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.
 Quoting: Revbo™


The delay could also be waiting for the other providers to post the message. It seems like it's only AT&T at the moment.

Well, if anyone was watching RT and Putin making his speech, this would force them to stop.

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.

If you are a Uverse customer and are getting an emergency alert on your TV, this is a nationwide issue. AT&T is aware and working on it.

 Quoting: redrocket

There is nothing on Google had to search BING for results. On phone w ATT Uverse now they have no idea what is going on...If there is some emergency that DC needs to tell us about, from 6 a.m. until 9:19 a.m. I think they should tell us and GET ME OFF NBC!!! I do not like watching my news from the NBC Liberal Agenda channel.

The message scrolls pretty fast but says this is a real emergency, stay off phones, stay tuned to local channels for further info..

Also says its a uverse thing and if you don't have uverse to tune into local stations for emergency info

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.

I was on the food network and it forced me to NBC. I can't change the channel and there is no sound other than the occasional screeching of the alert system notification. Still no message!

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
I live in GA, u-verse att&t is my cable provider, Sam message for over 20 minutes....it doesn't matter how many times you turn your tv off it still force changes the channel to the today show. but if you actually read the scrolling message it says its specifically testing certain areas, don't use your telephone....and yet still no message we are being forced to watch has come up and or on. Seems really odd, and the fact that all three of my school aged children had just got on their buses and then this weird message crap happens just seems plain odd. I think if they are going to make me watch a certain channel, they should start paying my bill.

Love not having control over my own TV. Uverse could run a banner across the bottom of the screens that says we are trying to fix this problem.

Credit should be put on each person's bill I think... Hmmm...tomato

Family was watching TV before school this AM. The TV threw up some message from the White House that my TV was being force changed to receive some Emergency Alert from the White House.

My TV has changed to NBC and I cannot change the channel nor watch recorded TV.

This is an Emergency Action Notification. Your channel has been force changed to receive the Emergency Alert from the White House ... that's the message.

Declaring martial law to avoid the election landslide?

Anyone else getting this, I'm in UVERSE.

And if he doesn't share these values then the conversation is over. If someone doesn't value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide to prove that they should value it? If someone doesn't value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show the importance of logic?
