The TV Listings/Program Guide information is wrong – can you fix it?

We provide the information on our shows to a company that then provides this data to your TV provider. Occasionally one link in this chain will break and the incorrect information will appear on your Program Guide. The only way we know if this is happening is if our viewers let us know. Please email us to let us know your TV provider, and when the information was incorrect. We will contact the Data Provider and your TV provider within 1 business day to get the problem fixed. Thank you for letting us know.


Why doesn’t WFN show more specific genre Programming? (Fly Fishing, Carp Fishing, Saltwater, etc.)

We are always looking to add the best programming to WFN. We recognize that some genres receive more coverage than others, and we are constantly reviewing programs that could be a fit with WFN. Our goal is to provide our viewers with a balanced schedule that highlights all kinds of fishing and outdoors lifestyle programming.

In the competitive landscape of Network Television, advertising is one of our most important streams of revenue used to generate the content you enjoy. (The other is subscriber revenue via your cable, Telco or satellite provider). Our goal is to feature contextual advertising that is relevant to you – the viewer. As we continue to grow throughout North America we are pleased to tell you that you will see more relevant commercial advertisers and less and less Direct Response (1-800 numbers) and Paid Programming ads.
