What is a Sun Outage?

posted on Monday, February 26, 2018 in MPW DigitalTV

Around the spring and fall equinoxes, the sun overpowers the signals from communications satellites, causing sun outages. Depending upon your viewing times and channel preferences, you may experience this between FEBRUARY 27th to MARCH 9th and from OCTOBER 4th and OCTOBER 13th, 2018. 

You may experience a degradation or interruption in your cable television signal. On digital channels, the picture may “tile” and freeze, or the message “please wait one moment” may display. Your picture will then slowly be restored. We appreciate your patience as this natural phenomenon occurs!
