This is beyond reason.
It ruined an entire evening of R&R for us. it went on for about 45 minute sor an hour.
I got the message the first time and it was for something that is in a different city an hour and a half away
I don't pay $130 a month for this.
Netflix was not affected.
Call the originator of the alert and complain.
The wait times for rogers tech support are 90 minutes long there must be a lot of annoyed viewers.
I know I am extremely annoyed.
Unless there is a way to supress these I will cancel my Rogers cable entirely.
Seriously people need to calm down a child was missing that's serious as well as any alert. Get over yourself and be thankful the child was found safe.
Just imagine how you'd feel if it didn't end well after the alert and all you could think of was a sound and alert interrupted your night.
Just to point out, this was mandated in 2014 by the CRTC. Here's the link.
If you have any strenuous objection to the system, then, you should be taking that up with the CRTC, not with Rogers, Bell, Telus, Shaw and others. Every company is subject to the same regulations.
