Disappointed that there is no explanation as to why the TV would cause internet to to down.

Radio frequency radiation, no doubt.  Welders that use hi-frequency can also cause problems with electronics.  It can radiate or couple back into the power lines.

Read the article; although, it's not a 'technical' explanation, it's there.

I could understand if it caused the WiFi signal to go down in a close area  

but to take out a whole village internet suggests to me that maybe it interfered with the ISP's local equipment...maybe the village is supplied internet via a microwave link and the tv was disrupting that ?

Openreach engineer Michael Jones said the company's chief engineering team helped to solve the mystery by using a spectrum analyser to look for a phenomenon known as 'Shine' (single high-level impulse noise).

Suzanne Rutherford of Openreach said such issues are not as rare as people may think.

'Anything with electric components – from outdoor lights to microwaves to CCTV cameras – can potentially have an impact on your broadband connection,' she said.

She advised people to ensure their electrical appliances are properly certified and meet British standards.
