ACC Network--Currently no deal in place for North Carolina?!


Posted: May 7, 2019 10:23 AM
 

What a gigantic clusterfluck if Swofford can't get this right; but then, anybody surprised? One of these articles is from Raleigh and the other from Charlotte...not the same, but similar. I couldn't find anything dedicated to the situation in South Carolina right now.

Still...none of that makes sense. How about you take a few minutes, think through what you're attempting to say, then try again? TIA

This was always going to be be an issue. There's just not nearly as much

demand for an ACC network as for SEC or B1G. Its also coming at a bad time as more and more people are leaving cable and satellite providers in favor of streaming services.

I am a bit surprised that the network is having a hard time picking up carriers in what should be its strongest state, but I am not surprised by this problem in general.

My advice is to ditch your cable provider and pick up Hulu Live or Playstation Vue. I used YouTube TV to watch CFB last year and it was outstanding and carried even more games than most cable packages that would cost $50-60 more a month.

Sadly, YouTube TV added a handful of crappy channels I don't care about and raised the price $10. They also have not committed to ACC Network yet while Hulu and PS Vue both have.

Were you still able to access the ESPN 3 content with this package? I have Direct, and when using ESPN 3 I know you have to verify you have certain TV providers which Direct is included in the options.


Not without getting a login from a friend or family member


Posted: May 7, 2019 1:22 PM
 

I never watch anything on ESPN3 these days though. It's a really terrible streaming platform that stutters and freezes all of the time, and there's very little i want to watch on there that isn't available elsewhere.

Checked with Charter here in Greer a couple of weeks ago. As of then, they had no agreement in place to carry the ACC network.

Deals are already in place with DirecTV & Dish Network

As well as with three (3) streaming options. The ACC Network already has all the leverage that it needs to get a deal done with all of the cable networks - and it's still 3 months away from the official launch.

YouTube still doesn't have a deal***

I would be surprised if YouTube isn't on board by August.

They would lose too many of the streamers in ACC country to Hulu, PS Vue and others, if they can't offer ACCN.
I have been subscribed to YouTube Live since last fall, and I really life their interface, but I will switch to someone else, if YouTube doesn't get the ACCN by the start of football season.

What is Notre Dame's cut from the ACC Network?


Posted: May 7, 2019 3:39 PM
 

Since the sec has proven that football is the cash cow...I don't think they should get anything.

Just what we need. A network 100% focused on UNC v Duke Basketball games 24/7. Finally a way to get Dean Smith back on TV.


And a lot of money for each ACC school***

You should spend more time worrying about the Coots than


Posted: May 7, 2019 3:43 PM
 

worrying about this. That should tell you where it lies on the worry chart........as in not at all

Current carriage agreements will start expiring and the dominos will start to fall. You may have 1 or 2 that try to play hardball and take it a week or 2 into the season but they'll cave as people start to switch carriers. ESPN will push this on their list of channels to the providers. I believe the SEC didn't even have all the carriers aligned Day 1 due to holdouts/negotiations and timing of carriage contracts but in the end they all fold.

Some of those mentioned are under the same corp umbrellas. DirectTV is owned by ATT. ATT wants everyone to switch to DirectTV as it is cheaper for them to operate so it totally makes sense at this point that DirectTV signed first yet ATT is listed as a holdout.
