According to the American Television Alliance (which is backed by cable and satellite companies among others), Fox affiliates are currently blacked out in:
- Spokane, Wash., where Northwest Broadcasting’s KAYU is off Cable One.
- Syracuse, N.Y., where Verizon has dropped Bristlecone-owned WSYT from its lineup.
- Sioux Falls, S.D., where Independent Communications’ KTTW hasn’t been carried by Medicacom cable since October 2016.
- Greenville-Greenwood, Miss., where Northwest’s Fox affiliate, a WABG subchannel, is also blacked out on Cable One.
Affected subscribers could still watch the game over-the-air with the help of an antenna.
There have been 75 blackouts to date in 2017, ATVA says, saying that number puts the year on pace to be a record-setter for blackouts. There were 104 blackouts in 2016, the advocacy group says.
