Tonight I was settling in for a night of crochet with Judge Joe and NCIS when the station went off the air. No pretty colors, just a black screen.

I went away for a while and when I came back I found music playing and big white letters reading

Sorry for the interruption of service.
There is no need to call us.

We are aware that this TV station
is temporarily unavailable and
we will have this channel back
as quickly as possible.

I think they're really having trouble as even the sound is intermittently cutting out. And it's not just WWJ, it seems to be all the local stations.

Yeah, they will as soon as the Greys have abducted enough new victims. Those pesky ships play hell with cable.

The cable company has been having issues lately, too-- sound unsyncing, black channels, I watch a part of the Lions game as huge pixels freezing randomly with sound from somewhere else... annoying, to say the least.

This is just normal, Dish Network is not perfect.
