Why does my cable scramble or go out around the same time every day?
This could be evidence of sun outages. The sun passes directly behind a channel’s broadcasting satellite, resulting in interruption of those channels. This occurs twice each year, for approximately two weeks in February/March and September/October. The exact time of day depends on the specific satellite, but sun outages typically occur between 9 AM and 5:30 PM, and last no longer than 15 minutes. You may experience pixilation, audio drop-outs, or total loss of signal to those channels during that time. Sun outages only affect TV service, not internet or digital phone services.
