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.

so... its an accident? really? seriously?

Bammy spilled his coffee on the keyboard... at least he didn't do it on the big red button.
 Quoting: R. Wordsworth


This EAM system isn't controlled by AT&T - but the federal gov't. There's a rack of equipment put in by the FCC in every broadcast station - remotely controlled by the Federales.

The Feds kicked this test off or they were hacked.

Same here. The fuckers are forcing me to watch the Today Show, and no emergency news of course.

Commie bastards.

Kind of a scary test.
 Quoting: LunaLove


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.

same here. I have chills over any EAS message anyway.

This would be creeptastic if I had Uverse. Not happening here, though.

Hack or not, still we know what's coming down the pike eventually.

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.

 Quoting: Canuck_Hillbilly


Thanks! hf
 Quoting: IndigoMoon


so this is a "pre-recorded", but "breaking" national emergency?
like that leaked you tube of a presidential "live emergency situation",
that didn't happen yet?

I notice the today show doesn't have much/anything to say about ebola in NYC.
Couple that with the release of test results late last night, maybe not so accidental
