Alert Ready

Alert Ready is a system designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through TV and radio. The Alert Ready system is developed in partnership with federal provincial and territorial emergency management officials, Environment Canada and the broadcast industry to ensure you receive alerts immediately. Bell MTS will now broadcast the alerts to our Fibe TV customers.

How will the alerts issued affect my Fibe TV viewing experience?
  • When watching live programming: An alert will interrupt your programming and appear on your TV screen only once. It will not be repeated.
    • You can press exit to dismiss the alert.
    • You can use REWIND to view the missed portion of your program.
    • You cannot use REWIND to view any missed portion of the alert.
    • You can PAUSE the program during the alert and resume play after the alert.
  • When watching a PVR Recording: An alert will not be saved on a recorded program as it only appears in real-time viewing.
  • When using an app: The app will stay active in the background.
  • When TV is in screensaver mode: The alert will not display.
  • When channel surfing, using the guide or menu: The alert will appear on your TV screen regardless of the channel you are currently watching.
