Upcoming Contract Renewals

GCI is happy to bring Alaskans the best TV programming available. Most of this programming is subject to agreements with the content owners who provide it to us. These agreements expire from time to time, and sometimes we are unable to continue them. In such cases, we would lose access to some programming now being carried. Although we are usually able to reach new agreements that allow us to continue bringing you the channels you want to see, we want to let you know about the programming contracts that are due to expire in the near future, in case we are unable to continue carrying any of the channels covered by those agreements.

September 2016


GCI is continuing to pursue a comprehensive agreement for KYES, the local My Network TV affiliate, with KYES’s owner, Atlanta-based Gray TV.  If Gray and GCI are unable to reach an agreement or extension, KYES may no longer be available on all GCI cable systems statewide. As always, check this page for updates.
