    Fire at OSN causes broadcast blackout

    Fire at OSN causes broadcast blackout
    by Brooke Sever on May 30, 2011



    A fire at the OSN broadcast centre in Dubai yesterday caused the failure of a number of channels.

    OSN subscribers were unable to view many channels after the incident, which the broadcaster claims caused no injuries to staff or facilities.

    A power failure as a result of the fire has been pin-pointed as the cause of the issue, according to a statement from OSN and du.

    “Work continues to restore the full service as soon as possible,” the statement read, adding that a range of channels, including Cartoon Network, CNN and Sky News HD were continuing to broadcast uninterrupted.

    Orbit pay-TV hit by fire
    By Chris Forrester



    Several channels from the Orbit Showtime Network have been affected by fire at its Dubai transmission centre. OSN confirmed the event Sunday morning, saying a “small fire” and subsequent power failure resulted in “many channels” not being broadcast. Local retransmissions on the ‘Du’ DSL system were also affected.

    According to local sources the fire started in the Uninterruptable Power Supply room and some reports suggest many channels went off air. “We are addressing this with urgency, you are advised to check the following for regular updates; osnetwork.com, Facebook, call centre numbers. Normal services will resume as quickly as possible,” said a company statement. Emergency programming kicked in.
