OEC Fiber TV | Sun Outages

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

If you notice channels being briefly interrupted, it could be from sun outages. Twice a year, around October and March, the sun aligns so that TV satellites are directly between the sun and the receiving dishes.

The sun’s rays overwhelm the satellite signal, causing brief outages for about 10 minutes per day for about a week. The time of the outage varies by which satellite a channel is using, but they are generally in the late afternoon. If you notice a channel is out longer than about 10 minutes, please contact technical support at (405) 217-6868.
