Was there any explanation from STARZ? I haven't been able to find anything in Google News about this.

Other than the Facebook note that juniormaj posted earlier in this thread... I haven't seen anything.

I don't do Twitter or Facebook... but I did check the Starz Web site, and didn't see anything there.

Starz West HD ch. 528 is acting up on my five-week-old DirecTV system today. Freezing, going black, audio dropouts.

Seems to be my only affected channel. How can I tell if it's a channel problem vs. something with my equipment? The full satellite test would disrupt some recordings currently underway.

I was under the impression that if there was an issue with my dish aim, many channels would misbehave simultaneously.

I just realized this occurred about the same time I told directv to cancel my STARZ subscription. sounds like they accidently cancelled everyone. Sorry for the inconvenience I caused. :D
