Why your television wasn’t getting a signal on Maui

maui county

We’ve gotten several calls into the newsroom from over-the-air viewers in Maui County who lost their television signals Monday night.

We’re told a special fiber cable that provides OTA transmission to Maui stopped functioning.

The line feeds all of the broadcasters transmitters on Maui. 

The area saw damage last weekend when strong winds blew a tree down onto some power lines. It’s unclear if that is related to the problem.

Crews resolved the issue, and the signal was restored Wednesday morning.

Cable viewers, including Spectrum, Dish, and DirecTV customers were not affected.
