Certain channels facing Sun outage on TataSky

By October 4th, 2015 AT 1:37 PM

Sun outage which is a natural phenomenon, occurs twice a year when the sun, the broadcasting satellite of a channel and the receiving station on earth come in a straight line. Due to this positioning there is an overpowering of the channel signals with the radiation coming from the sun.

As a result the signal of that channel is lost. This phenomenon normally occurs during the months of February to March and September to October especially during equinoxes.

Sun outages are a universal phenomenon and it affects all DTH operators alike. We just happened to notice it while using TataSky and got a screenshot to share with our readers. This is an intermittent and transient phenomenon and lasts only for a couple of minutes and does not cause any major inconvenience to viewers.
