No Fox affilate for Bangor after all

Although WCKD UPN 30 was suppose to switch affilations
to FOX on the same day that WPXT switches to WB, it
turns out that UPN will not let them out of thier
contract, so channel 30 will stay UPN for awhile.  As
a result, Adelphia has dropped them from the channel
lineup and replaced it with FOXNET.  However, they
continue to carry WSBK, UPN out of Boston.  My
question is, if anyone can clarify this, isn't it
illegal for a cable system to carry an out of town
station when a local affilate is availble?  And if
not, can WCKD request that all out of town UPN
programming be blacked out?
