One possibility is sunspots (solar flares). These are common in the spring and fall, and when they occur they can block some of the satellite signals.

Direct TV dishes now receive from multiple satellites, so that can explain loss of some channels but not others.

We are in a minimum as far as sunspots. No flares. You just have ATT. Worst company there is.

What you are thinking about is called sunout and is caused when sun is behind satellite. Used to be a problem

with the big dish and c band, but never lasted more then a few minutes.
