Dispatches from the Front
I ran across this on Twitter and thought it might be a good resource for the CordKillers community.
Hello Cord Killers,
The reason the FCC is so careful with the emergency alert tone is because the emergency alert system is designed to be triggered by its broadcast. The tone acts as a switch which propagates the alert across a broadcast area. “Daisy chains" form when one station receives a message from multiple other stations and the station then forwards that message to multiple other stations. This process creates many redundant paths through which the message may flow increasing the likelihood that the message will be received by all participants and adding to the survivability of the system.
During the October 24, 2014 episode of Bobby Bones' nationally-syndicated radio show, Bones played audio from the 2011 national test as part of a rant about a genuine test from Nashville's Fox affiliate, WZTV, that interrupted Game 2 of the 2014 World Series on October 22. The errant Emergency Action Notification was relayed to some broadcasters and cable systems—particularly those not configured to reject EAN messages that did not match the current date. Hope this clarifies things.
My best friend has shared her Netflix password with me since before Netflix had the option to have profiles. Then I got her hooked on Star Trek Discovery when I'd acquired season one. I decided I liked Discovery enough to actually pay for CBS all access. I looked up their terms of service and found I could have up to three simultaneous streams I decided to sign up and share my login info with my friend as a thank you for letting me use her Netflix. A neighbor was interested in Discovery as well so I shared my login with her and she shared her Hulu with me. I can't justify paying for three services but I can pay for one in exchange for the additional two. Yes at some point I'll put CBS on pause but at the same time, I don't mind paying for it right now.
