Fall Sun Outages

During the spring and fall of each year, you may experience some degree of television interference due to a phenomenon known as “sun outages.”  At these times, the sun’s low path in the sky takes it directly behind a communication satellite that transmits signals to a station on earth. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to prevent the mighty sun from interfering with your live TV viewing. The outages should last no longer than 15 minutes per day.

The following dates and times are predictions of when the sun may impact your viewing.
