    Dish Network outage

    The 129 satellite is currently offline, so some of Dish's HD channels are offline including HD locals.

    I actually was in the Chat Cue and was 1600th in line. When it got to the 900's Chat crashed and is no longer available. I've been able to ring through now, but am on hold.

    Re: Dish Network outage

    I would stop wasting your time trying to call in, from their facebook page:
    DISH Network
    We are currently experiencing an interruption affecting the 129 orbital satellite location. We have identified the issue and are working as quickly as possible to get your channels restored. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    If it is a nationwide outage, why sit on hold?

    Re: Dish Network outage

    Damnit, I wish I would have come on here earlier. I just spent the last couple of hours trying to figure out what the hell is going on. What a waste of my day off. I hate SD channels!!

    Don't tell anyone, but I think it is their competitor.

    Re: Dish Network outage

    I struggled being able to go to SD channels as there were not visible.

    Menu
    8 Preferences
    1 Guide Format
    Channel Preference choose hd & sd

    I know sd sucks, but its better than nothing

    Re: Dish Network outage

    I got home a little while ago and my GF said it has been down all night and she hasn't been able to get any channels. I unplugged it for ten seconds and plugged it back in and now its working fine. So if you still don't have service you may want to give that a shot.
