ESPN, Comcast Sports Coverage Also Affected By Equinox
Published October 8, 2012
A Comcast spokesperson said some of its systems were affected because the "earth station, satellites (and) sun" aligned, causing video to be lost for several minutes. Fox also said it did not experience any outages, though it was prepared to. "Fall sun transits were scheduled to hit yesterday as we were on the air with NFL," a spokesperson e-mailed. "Since each affiliate location and dish size dictate the time and duration impacted, all of NFL transmission was distributed across two satellites with specific instruction provided to stations on our protection plan."
