I was watching Fox news and as they were starting a story ob 0bama gearing up missile defense in the gulf the screen blanked at 9:56 AM. I've got Comcast. PMSNBC, and CNN are working fine here. I lost selective channels not all of them
It took 11 minutes to finally load Free Republic.
Is this happening to anybody else out there?
Freegards and sorry for the vanity
Everything is going down..it is all.. collapsing..... look outside... oh my ...........
Fine here on Comcrap (PA). You have a local problem.
NO. I am watching Fox News. No interruptions.
Didn’t Comcast just buy out NBC or MSNBC - maybe that is the problem?
I’m having problems too getting Freerepublic to load. Keep getting timeouts and when I am able to get it to load it’s very slow.
It sounds like a local glitch.
Well, here in Santa Barbara, CA and FOX is on the air.
watch foxnews on the web
Taking down FR by DOS or other means would be an utterly stupid, and doomed tactic on the part of the government. They would get caught, and the furor would be bigtime polically unfavorable.
Free Republic (IP also Comcast) runs like a three legged horse, if it loads at all.
We are on Cox here in Connecticut. I’ve had trouble on and off for the last several days getting FR to load. It’s the only website that I’ve had problems with. Everything else is just fine.
Fox News is off here too. Other news channels are on. Fox News seems to be only channel off for me.
Back when debate was going on about Cap and Trade, I lost satellite connection to FOX and CSPAN. It might have just been a strange coincidence, but the connection on CSPAN seemed to be fine when the person voting for Cap and Trade wanted to speak. There weren’t any storms or anything outside either.
I have dish network
I have comcast also, but I didn’t have any interruptions with Fox today. There have been several occasions in the past that, for whatever reason, Fox has gone blank while all other channels work fine. I’ve found when this happens, if I change the channel from Fox and then right back to Fox, it starts working again. No idea why and I’ve not noticed the same problem with any other channel.
If you go to the COMCAST news section “On Demand”...you will NOT find Fox News listed...only CNN and a local news channel.
I lost FOX at 3:45am PST today with Broadstripe
No Comcast interruptions here. Obozo is on FOX running his mouth about something right now.
Are you logged in?
You are not missing much.
He’s changed the word from spending to investing.
LOL.........we are not buying his bull.
A few days ago FOX and several other networks were off the air on my standard cable but I never lost them on the digital channels.
I’ve got the rest of the lame stream media. All the fox news channels are off air here. Very strange.
Well thanks everybody.
Are you kidding me? Are you so paranoid that a simple cable outage becomes part of the conspiracy?
Wow. Cut down on the decaf. Call Comcast. And get outside and get some sunshine.
And yes, do not forget to take the pills this morning.
Correction ALL fox channels are off here.
Fox is on in SoCA.
Same thing happened a few days ago here south of Tucson. Heard a helicopter circling and checked to see if it was black, but it was just the usual green & white border patrol. Also, the local grocers still had an ample supply of tinfoil, so I figured move along, nuthin here......
There was a running thread about this a couple of hours ago; it appears you're far from alone....but personally I've had no problem with FR this morning.
Fox News ok here in South Carolina.
Its not the black helicopters you gotta worry about, its the white NHL choppers that are a real threat.
Don’t want to miss this screaming rant at a city council meeting.
No problem with fox but FR was slow to load.
We swtiched to DirecTv because Dish would not carry the Fox Business channel.
I’m in Tn. as well. It’s due to the cold, snow and ice.
Did your spouse use parental controls to block it? ;-)
Comcast is great here. The fastest internet connection I’ve ever used.
Where is “here”?
