Is the CNN signal being sabotaged?

Today, this afternoon and evening,The CNN signal on my television set is pixelated Just like it is when my dish is covered with snow. No other channels are exhibiting this problem. It makes me wonder if the so called truth tellers are doing something about what they call fake news.I

Is anyone else having this problem?

DTV sends what CNN sends them so your dish may need to be aligned.

@shannon02Thanks for the reply. However, I've never before had the problem where only one channel is affected. Whenever I've had this situation in the past it has affected all but local channels and has been associated with a weather event. I'll wait a day or two then ask directv to check my system.

Signal is not being sabotaged. Lets leave the conspiracy stories in fiction where they belong.

An alignment or LNB issue could affect some channels and not all as they come off different transponders.

If it is a single channel that is the problem, then most likely it is the individual channel feed from the network to DirecTV.

In the meantime, verify coax is finger tight and try a red button reset on the receiver. If still happening within the next day then certainly call DirecTV to see if it is an issue they are tracking or if further troubleshooting is needed.

Thanks. The problem has disappeared after less than one day of jumbled signal. Although I never really believed it was sabotaged, I still wonder if anyone else also experienced this problem. Curious minds and all that.😉
