EAS Alerts

i don't know about anyone else but i am sick and tire of get "weekly" or "monthly" emergency alerts/test alerts 5+ times A DAY! do you know know what weekly means? it means ONCE a WEEK and 5+ TIMES A DAY. sick of it closing out what im watching

In addition not being able to turn off the power saver [Edited: "Language"] is irritating

These alerts are just annoying. Especially when they CONTINUE to interrupt my viewing. Currently there are weather alerts going off about every 10-15 minutes that are not just one, there are 3 or 4 at a time, LITERALLY back to back. As i write this is fine off three times with 4 alerts on the last one. This is ridiculous. And they are loud AF! Why are they twice the volume of the show I'm watching?? I stop paying attention to them and mute them, defeating the purpose. This is just stupid and aggravating.

EAS warnings are now in mandatory use by your municipal, county, state, and federal agencies that all use their own access to the station's servers. They are required to do the tests at various hours. We are far away from it being used primarily for weather alerts.
