Local news channel/live stream weather emergencies
I ran into a situation last night where we had severe weather coming through the area; I was watching the local news weather live feed on Roku, but just as a tornado warning came across for my area, the regular scheduled programming live stream for the local channel came to an end. The feed shut off and went to the "tune into our live stream" screen with listed times.
I had zero info on the warning, and as the local channel cuts into regular cable/satellite programming for these situations, apparently they can't with Roku.
I contacted the local channel and they said that Roku has control over that; of course Roku offered the forum as my only option for support.
Has anyone else run into this? Is there a way to fix it from happening again?
