There was a bit a sarcasm attached to my comment.
OK, a ton of sarcasm.
Im sure after this, cable companies will have a field day poking fun at D.
Dish had a similar problem a few months back. Just minor news items. I think it was either Comcast or fios had one too.
They don't pick on each other for this kind of thing.
Directv on twitter confirms all is back now.
Comcast new X1 box has alot of bugs.
Still getting the "Technical Difficulties" slide on 296 CNeHD. Just figured I'd let you all know.
USA currently has loss of audio. HD only. Stop calling, we've been Q'd all day. Haha. JK. I don't mind the short calls.
I've seen DirecTV ads in the past talking about cable TV outages, so they have picked on cable before. Of course, outages are a lot more common on cable than satellite, and sometimes the outages are planned for maintenance or network upgrading.
I remember a while back when a fiber optic line was cut by a fire, causing all of Colorado to lose Comcast TV service. There was also a police investigation at the scene, so Comcast could do nothing about it until the investigation was completed. Thus, everyone in Colorado with Comcast lost TV service for an entire day. (Oh, and it was a Saturday during college football season.)
I, for one, was RELIEVED to see that it was truly a technical problem. I saw the error screen on NFL Network and had a moment of absolute terror thinking that DirecTV and NFLN were going to be in a carriage dispute and I would lose NFL Network! That would be a nuclear-level disaster for an addict like me.
On comcast at least once a week i had my tv service interrupted for hours, most of them at nights. Some channels would be gone and sometimes all of them. But because it's something done locally then there wouldn't be any panic nationwide.
On the other hand if something goes wrong on directv every single costumer is affected. So you will hear from everybody complaining about directv
Well, they sure gave us a beatdown. Now it's the Phil's turn.....
Any one hear of the actual cause? Pretty sure it wasn't a dome enveloping CO, regardless of rumors....
When the outages affect the CONUS beam national feeds anyhow.
I highly doubt we will hear any causes, while it is standard business practice anymore to keep anything and everything confidential this is a time I would think it would be positive PR to be up front about what happened.
Unless 'Steve the Janitor' poked an equipment rack with his mop handle.
Of course all this transpired while I was setting up and activating my new HR34... Grrrrr :bang
Well, at least you survived the heart-attack phase. Very frustrating, but are you all set now?
