I think CNN is experiencing solar transit, lunar transit, and transit bus problems. CNN has frequently been dropping out at all hours of the day for months. Do other cable and satellite providers have the same problem?

Someone must have complained to CNN. If so, why has CNN not responded to complaints from these companies? :mad:

CNN and TSN. Maybe GOP operatives are hacking CNN, but I doubt Sportsnet operatives are smart enough to do the same to TSN. Lol

I started on CNN but switched - it was unwatchable for me. A bit later I turned the TV off because it was unwatchable (for other reasons).

Yes, CNN is the worst for audio drops, then picture black out, then everything is fine for 5 min....rinse & repeat!!....rinse & repeat....

I've had it happen on other channels, but CNN is by far the worst....is it any wonder that people are turning to the internet for programming...

Shaw Direct....do something!!....look into the problem!!

Either that or give us all a credit for all the unwatchable channels....

Do you notice this on any other channels? The TSN channels regularly suffer from this on my dish.

Hmm CNN is on the same F2 transponder as Paramount and AMC among others. I have seen the same thing on Paramount in the past during Yellowstone in particular. Some recordings were ok. Others had segments that were unwatchable. The TSN channels are also on Anitk F2 and both on vertical transponders. I don't think the polarity is the issue but something with the signal encoding or upload is off.

I've occasionally had it happen on 448, Nat Geo Wild....this week, so far so good...

But nothing like CNN, where the audio drops, picture remains; the screen goes totally black for at least 20 sec. & then both audio & picture return for a short time...

I never had a problem with CNN before the channel/satellite change.....

I have up on CNN last night as the drop outs got worse. Instead of just a little pixelation here and there, I started getting the full on black screens every once in a while that other people have mentioned. I switched over to ABC and no problems for the rest of the debate.

looks like Discovery Velocity has been suffering as well, based on recordings I’ve stockpiled during the free view. Anyone else noticed the CNN audio/video disruptions in DV?

I was noticing a lot of problems with the different TSNs during Monday night football. I switched to RDS. I had the game on mute most of the night anyway, I had hockey on the main screen

Confirming problems with CNN: audio drop outs, black screen for several seconds and occasional green pixelation screens.

Do other cable companies have the same problem with CNN? Maybe the problem is with the source - CNN or their uplink feed to Shaw ?
I don't know about Cable, but I can tell you that CNN on Bell Satellite does not break up...and there are no audio drop outs at all.

I am surprised that the CNN dropouts are not apparent on Bell Satellite. I agree that the problem must be with Shaw Direct. Surely we are not the only Shaw Direct customers to be aggravated by the poor quality of CNN.

All Atlantic CTV and CTV2 channels are in the dark. Not sure for how long but everything is black from Halifax, , Moncton, Sydney and Saint John. I only turned them on at 7 pm and 23 minutes later they are still all in the dark.
