Your Direct TV dish will ensure that you have sound and picture quality superior to that provided by cable TV. The technologies that enable personal dishes to capture television signals have come a very long way in recent years! Still, a lot of people wonder if using a satellite dish to pick up their television channels might not be a touchy thing in bad weather.

For those of us in sunny California, worries about inclement weather disrupting our service are nil. But for people in areas with heavy snowfall, strong winds and frequent rain, this is a common query. Can a Direct TV dish stand up to difficult weather and still deliver clear programming without disruption?

Your Direct TV Dish and Extreme Weather

The only way that bad weather can disrupt a satellite TV signal is if excessive amounts of snow fall on the dish. Typically, a dish is angled so that this doesn't happen very easily. In heavy enough snowfall areas, however, you may want to invest in a dish cover that is designed to keep this from happening.

Even when a signal has been disrupted by snow or water on the dish or low-noise blocker, you can usually assume that it will return shortly. If necessary, you can reset your Direct TV receiver and wait for a few minutes. With the wide variety of covers, sprays, and even dish heaters available, even those of us in the snowiest areas should be just fine.
