Fall Solar Outages Affect 3RTV

Twice a year, 3RTV viewers (and ALL TV viewers) across our area may experience brief signal pixelization, interference or loss of signal as the sun passes behind various satellites providing programming feeds. This phenomenon, known as a solar outage, occurs for a few weeks in the fall and then again in the spring. This fall, the outages begin late September and continue through mid-October.

A scam email is going around to some 3 Rivers customers with the subject line “Quarantined” regarding their email settings. THIS IS A SCAM AND IS NOT FROM 3 RIVERS! 3 Rivers will never send an email like this to our customers. Another sign that this email is a scam is in the “From” line—the email address is not 3 Rivers! Always be sure of the sender before clicking on any link included in an email.
