Fox changing local affiliates; cable subscribers could lose service

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - As of 10 PM tonight, KFXF Channel 7 will be dropping its prime-time fox programming to become a 'My Network' TV affiliate.
Other than the two hours of Fox primetime and Fox Sports content, all other shows on the station will remain the same.
FOX network content will move to a sub-channel of KATN channel 2, which is owned and operated by Coastal Television out of Anchorage.
The move is already making some waves.
Cable TV provider GCI sent out a notice to its Fairbanks customers today telling them KATN will block cable subscribers from receiving FOX programming under the new arrangement.
The programming change came about after a renewal agreement could not be reached.
Chris Fry; General Manager - KFXF>>: "When we sign on Saturday morning, KFXF will now become a My Network affiliated station. What that means is the two hours of programming in prime time, the 8-10 PM time period, will now be programs that Fairbanks is very familiar with and love to watch."
In the interest of public disclosure, KFXF Channel 7 is owned by Gray TV, which also owns this station.
