What does this mean for me?

October 6 – 9, 2018

Between 12:42 pm and 4:14 pm from 10/6 thru 10/9 there will be video interruption to a number of our channels in our lineup. 

Because all of the satellite signals are digital, during the outage the signal will break up for a brief period, then go black for 2-3 minutes and finally will reappear with some breakup.  

What you need to know about sun outages.

Twice a year, during the spring and fall, you may experience some degree of television interference due to a phenomenon known as “sun outages.” This Q&A will help you understand what they are and how they will affect you.

What is a sun outage?

A sun outage is an interruption in satellite signals caused by interference from solar radiation. The interference is caused when the sun is in direct line with a communication satellite and the sun’s radiation overwhelms the satellite signal.

How long do they last?

Interruption in TV service due to sun outages can last up to several minutes a day.

How do they affect watching TV?

During this time, you may experience interference with picture quality and sound when watching television. Sun outages do not affect internet or phone service.
