Every fall, interference from the sun has a brief impact on television reception. Sun outages occur when the sun passes behind a satellite that transmits television programming.
During these mini-eclipses, the sun and the satellite are in line, and Citizens’ receiving antennas capture the signal from both, causing degradation in the signal. You may experience anything from slight signal degradation to complete signal loss. The outages are usually brief, lasting a few minutes.
Approximate dates and time for sun outages:
Date: October 6th – October 12th
