Why does Spectrum do the National Emergency Broadcast so late at night, like 1 AM

I often fall asleep with the TV on and am violently awakened by a screaming siren at 1AM, regularly...the national emergency broadcast. Why is this not done during noon? or sometime when most people are awake enough to handle this? Instead, you blast this at 1AM and wake everyone up. Is this a ploy to get people to turn their TV's off at night? Complete baloney and I thing this needs more attention. It's terrible. We pay through the nose for this TV...and we can't use it without additional headaches.

    Hello @Honestly Welcome!

    The Emergency Broadcast Service (EBS) messages are not controlled by Spectrum. They are regulated by the FCC, You would need to file a complaint with them.

    Google FCC Complains and it should be one of the first sites that shows on the page.

    That’s exactly what I have been complaining of too. I’m lucky I don’t have a sudden heart attack from the violent alarm awakening me out of sleep!
