ACC network may stall over rights issues

According to sportsbusinessdaily.com, the ACC network will not be able to launch a lucrative deal with ESPN until 2027. Raycom holds the rights to live ACC football and basketball games.

Don’t expect an ACC-branded TV channel to be launched any time soon.

The biggest problem so far is a rights issue. ESPN needs to control the conference’s syndicated rights to launch a channel. But those rights are tied up until 2027 through deals with Raycom and Fox Sports Net.

“There’s no way an ACC network co-exists with a syndicated model,” said Chris Bevilacqua, a media consultant who worked with the Pac-12 to form a league network. “They’re going to have to get those rights back.”
