WFGX's analog signal is very weak (509,000 watts), resulting in marginal (at best) reception outside the immediate Fort Walton Beach area, even in Pensacola (even though it identifies as "Fort Walton Beach-Pensacola" on the air). It must rely on cable coverage to reach the entire market. As a result, the WB opted to affiliate with the much stronger WBPG when it signed on in 2001. In 2006, WFGX increased its digital signal to one million watts, enough to provide a good signal to viewers in Mobile and Pensacola.

WFGX is unavailable on Comcast Cablevision of Mobile, the largest cable system on the Alabama side of the market. This is presumably because it cannot be seen at all over the air in that part of the market. While this did not change when My Network TV debuted in September 2006, it is possible that this status may change in the future. The FCC's must-carry rules give full-powered stations the option of "retransmission consent." This option gives full-powered stations the right to request compensation from cable systems as a condition of carrying their station.

WFGX disappeared from Mediacom, the main cable provider for portions of the Florida side of the market (including Santa Rosa County, and Pensacola Beach) at midnight on January 6, 2007. This was due to Sinclair's dispute over compensation rights. Since no agreement could be reached reached by the end, Mediacom pulled all of Sinclair's stations, including WFGX.
