Hey, this must be why the season premieres of the CW’s 90210 and NBC’s Parenthood were depressed this year: Thanks to an interruption in a satellite feed, Dish Network customers nationwide lost their HD channels smack in the middle of primetime Tuesday night. It’s unclear how many of the company’s more than 14 million subscribers were affected. One customer told CNN that he couldn’t get through to Dish’s technical support on the phone or via the website; the company kept people informed and answered tech questions on its Twitter feed. Earlier today, Dish tweeted that the issue had been resolved and channels have been restored, about 16 hours after first reporting the problem. A spokesman told CNN that the issue was resolved on schedule and the outage wasn’t major.
