A fire Mon morning in Stamford, CT, has closed a building that houses several programmers’ facilities as well as Ascent Media‘s uplinking facilities. As a result, the signals for A&E HD, History HD, YES Net HD and NFL Net HD were knocked off the air. YES and NFL’s HD feeds were still down Tues afternoon. A&E Television Networks began upconverting its SD feeds to HD Tues so it could offer something. No one was injured in the fire. No word on when the building would be re-opened, but there was hope Tues that things could be up and running again over the next 24-72 hours. YES simulcasts Queens-based “Mike and the Mad Dog’s” radio show via its Stamford facility. The radio show relocated to Yankees’ Stadium so that YES could simulcast it through another facility. The fire, which reportedly started on the roof, took place in the same complex that houses Time Warner Cable‘s offices, but TW is located in a different building.
