Communications satellite could knock out cable across country

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- It's straight out of a science fiction movie -- except it's true and it could take away your favorite TV shows.

It turns out that a communications satellite orbiting thousands of miles above the earth is drifting out of control and it may soon knock out another satellite that supplies cable TV programming to homes across the country.

Scientists are trying to stop that from happening.
