Spring Sun Outages

Posted by Dakota Central 3/5/2018 12:35:17 PM

Twice a year, in the spring and fall, you may experience brief television interference known as "sun outages" or "satellite sun fade." This happens when energy from the sun overpowers satellites' signals, which in turn causes interference with TV quality picture and sound. Interruption to TV service due to sun outages can last several minutes a day. Satellite sun fades typically occur between February and March in the spring, and September-October in the fall.

On the bright side, sun outages DO NOT affect Internet or Voice service!

My favorite thing from DCT is my whole-home DVR. I love being able to record and watch shows on any TV in the house...after having it, I couldn’t live without it!
