Around these two months, March & September, the SUN is directly behind the satellite and the noise level is much higher than the TV Signal level. This causes service outage to TV (Sun Outage usually distorts TV signals).
Digicel Play viewers will experience the following:
- Sparkles in the first days of the sun outage time frame that may gradually deteriorate to the point of total outage;
- Blocks or freeze frames in the picture before and after peak times, or;
- No channels showing at all (No Signal – error).
Please note below the estimated times for Sun Outages for September 2019. This will affect the receiving signal at our Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) Transmission sites thus affecting our Direct To Home (DTH) customers. Viewers will experience a momentary loss of all channels.
NOTE: Times are estimated and outages may start earlier or end later then calculated
All DTT Location which includes Kokopo, Buka, Mt Hagen, Goroka, Chimbu, Madang, Lae & Port Moresby.
