    Dishnet's satellite (HDTV satellite) shut down about four hours ago. According to the news, they have no idea why, and it is
    affecting the whole USA. They expect it to be "prolonged". We have no TV reception at all. A little weird, that's all. Just curious if anyone had a news update
    re why it shut down.

    We have both satellite TV and Internet and have had zero issues today. Also watched the local and World news and heard nothing about it

    Here's something they released on the outage...
    "We are currently experiencing an interruption affecting the 129 orbital satellite location causing an HD signal outage in some areas. We have identified the issue and are working as quickly as possible to get your channels restored. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Until these channels are restored you can watch most Standard Definition channels by pressing the menu button on your remote control, and selecting Program Guide. Or you can access your DVR content by pressing the DVR button.

    If SD channels are not visible in your Program Guide you can enable them by pressing the Menu button on your remote control, selecting Preferences and then Guide Format. Select HD and SD in the Channel Preferences field in the bottom right corner of the screen."

    Verizon had an outage not that long ago that spanned across the nation...it was back up in a couple of hours.
