Theres several places online where you can stream it. Fox, CBSsports and USopen.org all offering streaming. With severe weather alerts, they are always going to favor public safety over whatever program is on that channel.

I remember a few weeks ago when we had severe thunderstorms and tornadoes here in Ohio and people got all upset when they interrupted The Bachelor. Sorry folks, public safety is more important than your show.

This has happened in my area several times. I don't have a problem with having weather alerts--they are very important IMO. What is hard to endure is a newby weekend weather person droning on and on and on about nothing over and over and over. Give us the facts and move on.

The on-screen notifications are often poorly done as well. They don't need to be on constantly--once every few minutes would be fine. And maybe pay some attention to what part of the screen they are covering so viewers have a chance of seeing what they are tuned in for. Most of the problem stems from the fact that everyone at a local station on weekends--on-air talent, producers, etc--are very young with very little experience.

This was my issue, they said the same thing over and over. I don’t have a problem with them letting people know the weather danger, but give the update and go back to programming. Repeating the same warning, rain totals, wind speeds and such over and over isn’t really helping.

I was stuck at work with limited access to viewing so didn’t have a lot of options. I also appreciate the warning as I was in the April 3-4 1974 super outbreak of tornadoes. Just feel like they over do it. Understand it’s better to err on the side of caution.

Yeah, they had two boxes going for a while then switched to weather, solely.

 

What I couldn't get over was why they couldn't separate the boxes instead of overlapping the weather box over the corner of the Open coverage?

 

Yes, public safety is paramount... but we can, and should, have both in 2019.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
