First time ever (that I have ever seen), programming was interrupted for EAS Test. It was a DirecTV Test complete with the DirecTV logo - not a local station test (it was on a cable only News Channel anyway). HOWEVER, the test was for the Los Angeles Metro (where DirecTV is located) and I was instructed to tune to Local Los Angeles Stations if this was an actual emergency..... well, I am about as far away from the LA Metro as one can get, so that is absolutely worthless for me (and the majority of DirecTV subs). If I am going to be interrupted for a test, which I would rather not be (although Federally Mandated) at least make it my area! I do NOT need to know about emergencies in the LA DMA.
