Please be advised, beginning in early late September and continuing through the middle of October, disturbances to signal reception may occur when the sun passes directly behind a satellite. The intense energy of the sun overpowers the signal from the satellite. You may experience anything from slight signal degradation to complete signal loss. This usually lasts less than a few minutes, and occurs in the afternoon. Exact dates and times of these outages depend on your geographical location and satellite viewed. This is a natural phenomenon that affects both satellite and cable company reception. For more information, please contact our Customer Service Department at 496-5800.
