Tech, video games, and a good book. I love all of them, and I'd write about all of them if I had the chance! I've been a teacher in the past, now a writer for tech-related news, guides, and information.

  1. I think that working with the device makers would be better. While I agree that cell phone notifications would be far more effective for the larger population, working with Roku, Apple TV and at the device lever rather than the provider level would be more effective.

    99% of my TV viewing is via streaming devices, Roku and Mi Box, but I’m seldom on Netflix or hulu

    • That’s a great point, Chris. I think the only problem with that (and with using SVOD services to push emergency notifications as well) would be the necessity for internet access. If your device isn’t connected, it’s not going to receive that message. This is actually why mobile texts are the most effective, since the only limitation there is having your device powered on and within even a marginal range for receiving text messages. But with the majority of streaming happening through gaming consoles, that’s where they’d likely want to start.
