What is a Sun Outage?

posted on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 in MachLink TV

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 29th to MARCH 6th and from OCTOBER 5th to OCTOBER 12th, 2020. 

You may experience a degradation or interruption in your television signal. On some 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!
