Some information about sun outages:

Each Spring and Fall, cable and satellite companies experience a technical phenomenon called "sun outages," which can impact television networks. For a period of about two weeks, the sun causes "solar interference" to all geostationary satellite signals. As the sun's path across the sky gets lower each day, there are times when it is in a direct line behind a communication satellite that is sending signals to a receiving satellite dish here on earth. When the dish antenna is looking into the sun, the interference from the sun overrides the signals from the satellite. This is when a sun outage occurs.

Sun outages occur during the months of February/March and September/October and can last as long as 15 minutes a day and take place over a period of 15 days. At first, the outage is minimal, beginning as "sparkles" in the picture during the first days. Gradually, it worsens to the point of total outage. Once it reaches its peak, the interference will gradually decrease, becoming less noticeable each day after. Some channels will experience "blocks" or "freeze frames" in the picture before and after the peak times. These are the channels received digitally from the satellite.

Unfortunately, there is technically nothing cable and satellite companies can do to prevent sun outages from occurring. Each satellite service that they receive signals from will experience this interference at predictable times. The best advice that can be offered when experiencing this phenomenon is to be patient while the sun outage passes naturally.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
