Do you currently get another, closer, ABC station? If you do, then it is possible that the other ABC station has imposed its right to have WXYZ removed from your service (so you will watch the "closer" ABC station, and its commercials, for ABC shows). If so, then it probably won't matter who your cable provider is.
flint/Genessee county have their very own ABC affiliate in WJRT (channel 12)
WXYZ is an out of market (for Genessee county) ABC station.
it is gone and it (most likely) wont be coming back
watch WJRT instead
