Question about Televison & Video
The problem used to happen with certain receivers that are confused by digital broadcasted signal.
Try the following:
1) Reset the receiver box to factory settings and do a rescan. If receiver is built in with TV, simply do a rescan.
2) Call the provider and ask if they are aware of the problem. They usually are, since the problem depends on TV provider signal not working with certain receivers.
3) Check if a firmware update for the receiver box (or TV if directly connected) is available.
4) If there is no better solution, see if there are duplicate of the same 9 channels in different positions.
In this example with Go Australia the "9" channels where duplicated in positions 350-352.
Alternatively delete manually the nr.9, set the channels as skip, and re-program manually the channels in different positions. Procedure depends on the receiver used.

You didn't said what were those channels and of what type (analog or digital), where you live or what cable company you use. Without any information i can only say that the problem is not with your tv - otherwise it would have affected all the channels, not just a few.
Most likely something in the settings of those channels has been changed : they switched to a different coding system (NTSC instead of PAL), they might have been transformed from a free channel to a paid one, or they might have changed their security code and the cable company hasn't upgraded theirs yet.
You will need to contact your company and ask them what changed and then, if possible , made the appropriate modification on your side.
