Possible TV outages due to upcoming solar flares

During the upcoming Spring Equinox and the surrounding weeks, there is a chance that television services may see interruptions due to an increase in solar flares. This happens for about one week twice per year during the spring and fall equinox seasons and could affect both EZVideo and cable TV feeds. 

As DirectLink provides content from about a dozen satellites, different channels may experience these sporadic (but temporary) outages at various times. We expect to see interruptions between March 1 and March 4. Learn more about this phenomenon that affects all cable providers at the link below.
