Annoying TV takeover weather alerts from National Weather Service
It's very annoying when the NWS interrupts programming by literally commandeering the Cox receiver, taking it over completely rather than just running a banner across the screen with the information they want to publicize.
If I'm watching a program via the DVR, it kicks the program off. If it was recorded, I can go back and restart it, but if I'm watching it via program delay of my choosing on the DVR, I totally lose what I was watching as it kicks it off and updates to the live broadcast.
Why can't Cox just run a banner like DirecTV does and leave the programming alone?
