Sun Outages May Occur in the Coming Weeks

​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. This phenomenon impacts all cable television and satellite television services.
