BTV 2011 Outages Thread - Please read post 1.
Tonight my Bell tv crapped out completely....most unfortunate since I had a friend over and had shelled out 65 bucks for Wrestlemania.
After an hour and a half (two calls, first one dropped) they told me it was a province wide atmospheric issue, yet I've seen no other complaints on here so my bs-meter is chirping.
Anyone else with issues tonight?
Edit by 57 - here's the thread from 2010 for previous information:

If you wish to find other previous similar threads, do a search for "rain snow fade". If your location was down for significantly longer than other people indicate in this thread, then you should consider re-aiming your dish and/or getting a larger dish.
