The rejiggering of channels onto new transponders this morning was annoying. CNBC and MSNBC were both offline from 6:00am til about 6:30 EST. I wish they'd do these things in the middle of the night, rather than first thing in the morning if it's going to cause that much disruption.
But it is in the middle the night understanding that 6 AM for you is 3 AM for the West Coast and what, midnight for Hawaii. There is no perfect time, unfortunately. Not sure why you had a problem for an entire half hour though.
