ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- DISH Network said Tuesday night it was experiencing a satellite problem that knocked out HD channels "in some areas."
The pay TV provider didn't say how many of its 14.3 million U.S. customers were affected.
"We are currently experiencing an interruption affecting the 129 orbital satellite location causing an HD signal outage in some areas," the Colorado company said in a statement on its Web site. "We have identified the issue and based on our current estimates, the situation should be corrected overnight and your HD channels should be restored in the morning."
DISH Network suggested its customers unplug their receiver and then plug it back in to be able to view the standard definition channels.
JUSA-TV, Denver, reported it had been told there were signal problems in several states, including Colorado, Texas and Ohio. WTHR-TV, Indianapolis, and WSAV-TV, Savannah, Ga., also reported people were experiencing the problem in their areas.
