Why is the screen black on some of my channels?

It appears that your receiver is having a problem displaying the feed for that particular channel/range of channels.

  • Ensure that your TV is on the correct input setting. Our Standard Definition receivers would normally be connected via a coaxial cable, in which case your television should be set to channel 3.
  • If you are using a High Definition Receiver, it may be connected via component (red, green and blue cables), or via HDMI. Your television should be set to the appropriate component or HDMI input.
  • Ensure that all the cables connecting to the wall, to your receiver and to your television are correctly and firmly plugged in.

If after performing these steps your receiver still displays a black screen on channels, contact our Customer Service team.

Good to know: If the are receiving a black screen on sports programming, this may be due to a regional blackout. See Why is there a black screen instead of a sporting program? for more information.
