WFVX-LD is the Fox affiliate for Central and Eastern Maine, licensed to serve Bangor. It broadcasts a low-power digital signal on UHF channel 22 from a transmitter on Black Cap Mountain along the Penobscot and Hancock County line. The station can also be seen on Charter Spectrum channel 4 and in high definition on digital channel 704. Owned by Rockfleet Broadcasting, WFVX is a sister station to ABC affiliate WVII-TV, and operates from WVII’s studios in West Bangor. The station is also seen on the second digital subchannel of WVII. In addition to Fox programming, WFVX is a secondary affiliate of MyNetworkTV, and airs Jewelry Television overnight. As a low-power station, WFVX’s main signal has very little penetration outside the greater Bangor area. However, it is carried on cable and satellite television as far away as Skowhegan and Bar Harbor; additionally, its carriage on the WVII subchannel gives the station full-market over-the-air coverage.
