Viacom is Blocking Shows Online

Viacom is blocking full episodes of its own shows on its own websites. Viacom has done the same thing to other companies. But don’t take our word for it.

In doing this, Viacom is violating the principles of an open Internet. If you agree, please consider contacting the FCC.  Specifically, you can visit this page on the FCC website and click the proceeding number 14-28 next to “Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet.”  That should take you to any easy form you can fill out and submit. (Note: While the public comment period on this proceeding officially ended Sept. 15, the form to submit a comment was still available as of the date of this post. Also, we’ve been told it may take a while for the FCC to publish the comments it receives.)

In the meantime, the shows you like may be available through other, non-Viacom Internet sources.  Thank you for your patience.  We hope Viacom will reconsider and stop this action.

‘Sun Outages’ May Affect TV Viewing

the-sun-from-earth-in-space

Twice a year, during the fall and spring, TV watchers may experience some degree of interference on some channels due to a phenomenon known as “sun outages.” The following Q&A will help you understand what they are and how they could affect you.

What is a sun outage?

A sun outage is an interruption in TV signals caused by interference from solar radiation. The interference is caused when the sun is in direct line with a communication signal and the sun’s radiation overwhelms it.

How does this affect watching TV?

During this time, people with cable or satellite TV service may experience interference on some channels that can affect picture quality and sound. The picture, for instance, may pixilate slightly, or clicking sounds may be heard. In some cases, picture or sound may completely drop for a few minutes.

Sun outages do not affect Internet or phone service.

How long does the interference last?

Such interference can last up to several minutes a day.

When will this interference happen?

This fall, sun outages may affect some channels – though only intermittently and generally for only a few minutes at a time – between roughly Oct. 5 and Oct. 10. Typically, the effects, if visible, will occur between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. CT.

What should you do?

If you experience picture or sound interference during these times, please be patient. Your service should return to normal after a short while.
