    2017 Spring Outage Alert

    Twice each year, the sun is positioned directly in line with the ground-based satellite dish antennas used to receive Cable TV programming. This positioning causes programming interruptions as the sun’s energy overpowers the signals transmitted by the satellites.

    When digital signal is interrupted by the sun’s energy, the DCT set top converter displays “One Moment Please” on the affected channel(s). This condition will be present for several minutes each day during the sun outage period, which lasts for several days. For Spring 2017 in the Troy Cable viewing area, this period is from Thursday, March 2nd through Tuesday, March 7th. 

    More information can be found by visiting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_outage.

    Thank you,
    Troy Cable
