A sun outage is an interruption in satellite signals caused by interference from solar radiation. The interference is caused when the sun is in direct line with a communication satellite and the sun's radiation overwhelms the satellite signal.
Interruption in TV service due to sun outages can last up to several minutes a day.
During this time, you may experience interference with picture quality and sound when watching television. Sun outages do not affect internet or phone service.
