Service restored after DirecTV glitch blocks Fox News HD, leaving viewers frustrated

Recommended Posts


The issue for some Fox News HD DirecTV viewers started earlier this week, on Wednesday, with intermittent disruptions.  

Fox News has received a flurry of complaints about the disruptions, but is unable to address a problem that lies with DirecTV. Viewers with questions or complaints may contact DirecTV’s national customer service number at (800) 531-5000.

The disappearance of Fox News HD has particularly angered those who have been closely following the remaining days of the presidential campaign, leading some to question if the problem was in fact a technical difficulty.

“This happened early yesterday morning for a couple of hours. Now it's off again for several hours. At first my husband were throwing around conspiracy jokes. As the morning goes on, it's not as funny,” said a post on the DirecTV forum page.

“CANCELLING Dtv after FOX NEWS BLACKOUT,” said another posting, left by by “a lifelong customer” to DirecTV who questioned why backup systems couldn’t efficiently address the issue.

Hacked or blacked out? Or... just technical difficulties?
