Fall Sun Outages

It is that time of year again. Fall sun outages will begin on or around October 4th through approximately October 11th. 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. Interruption in TV service, due to sun outages, may last up to several minutes a day. During this time, you may experience interference with picture quality and sound when watching television. Sun outages do not affect internet or phone service.
