FamilyNet is Becoming The Cowboy Channel

The Cowboy Channel launches July 1

FamilyNet will become The Cowboy Channel on July 1, 2017. The content on the new channel will be closer to the type of content shown on RFD.

The Cowboy Channel is dedicated to western sports and western lifestyle programming not found anywhere else. Prime time and weekend viewing on The Cowboy Channel will feature extensive coverage of rodeo, bull riding, and the wide variety of first-class cowboy/cowgirl competitions taking place throughout North America both on a “live” and recorded basis, while the remainder of the schedule will feature western lifestyle and equine programming.

The Cowboy Channel will be located at channel 159 on our vIP cable system.

Internet Privacy Protection

We Don't Sell Your Data

A bill was signed into law on Monday April 3, 2017 to repeal the internet privacy protections that were put in place in late 2016. These protections placed some limitations on what Internet Service Providers could do with a customer's browsing information.

Here at Citizens Fiber, we have no plans to sell any of our customer's browsing information to anyone. We have never done this in the past and have no plans to do so in the future. Our customer's right to privacy is paramount to us, and we don't feel it is right to profit from their private information.

We hope this helps to eliminate any fears you may have had over discussions to revoke the proposed internet privacy protections. If you are happy with the service you receive from us and the decisions we make to protect your privacy over our bottom line, please let your friends and family know about us.

Channel Changes


  1. Effective February 1, 2017, NBCUniversal will discontinue delivery of Cloo Network (107).
  2. Effective February 28, 2017, Big Ten Network (59, 60), will no longer be available on Citizens’ cable lineup. This is due to contract negotiations that failed to result in a reasonable rate agreement.
  3. Effective March 1, 2017, Fusion (120), Sprout HD (814), Discovery Family HD (817), Fox Business HD (830), Bloomberg HD (831), ESPN U HD (832), and ESPN News HD (833), will be available on the Deluxe lineup. It has come to our attention that these channels, though properly advertised as Deluxe on our lineup cards and website, were incorrectly set up for the Classic lineup on our cable boxes.
  4. Effective March 1, 2017, Oxygen (161) and Oxygen HD (861) will be available on the Classic lineup, previously advertised as Deluxe only.

If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please call our office at 724.423.3000.
