[Niagara] 8:00pm - All TV Channels FAIL

Any reported TV outages tonight?

Shortly before 8:00pm, pretty much all TV channels are showing 'One Moment Please' This channel will be available shortly. On analog, most are showing either a test pattern, or are frozen.

Looks like something went for a shit somewhere?

Calling into Cogeco gives a fast busy...

Hello,

Yes there are a high number of channels impacted at the moment.
We are already aware and working on the issue.

Thanks Marcer for the prompt and timely update!

I just checked out the service outage page and it's pretty much showing the same TV outage message for every city. Looks like it's really widespread!

Welland is out around Fitch St. I first noticed the issue when cable 42 kept dropping audio bits about 15 - 20 seconds apart, shortly before the signal dropped.....

Looks like most service was restored around 9:30-9:45pm.

Was pretty much all channels that were affected, both SD and HD. Maybe a half dozen were working at most. Everything else was either 'please wait, the channel will be available shortly' or frozen on whatever the last image was being displayed before the outage.

Hmm.. Switch problems eh?
Courtesy of those who brought us the CHCH gay porn incident?
Could those two be related?
