Truthfully, though, I think in 10 years, all of these conference-centric networks are all going to be streaming platforms, and won't be surprised if a good number of schools don't have their own version of the Longhorn Network that fans can pay directly to the schools for access.

I wonder if they are going to have their own ACC version of Finebaum?

Get Dan Le Batard to do ACC driven show. That would be epic!

Sometime you have to zig when people expect you to zag.

This will be a new network. I don't believe you'll find any reliable sources confirming that this was ever under consideration.
Yeah, honestly wasn't following it closely enough to know if that was legitimate or just a rumor. Hopefully the channel will be on Youtube TV.

It has been rumored that YouTube has already signed up to carry the ACC Network, along with the other ESPN family of networks.

Makes sense, can't see why Youtube TV would no carry it. I just hope the do it before start of football season.

RE: ACC Network Launch Set
I wouldn't expect YouTube TV to carry it. They would have been announced at the same time Google Fiber was announced if a deal had been worked out.

Comcast, Charter, Cox, amd Dish are the big 4 we need to keep an eye out on

Packer and Durham (Billy’s son Mark and Woody’s son Skip)

Tim Brando would be great for that purpose--but I dont think he wants to do a daily show anymore.

Doesn't look like it's being picked up by several providers. I keep getting this advert. I imagine it's not picked up by a lot of California providers except on the extended sport package (the really expensive one)

That is huge as it puts pressure on the cable companies that haven't signed on yet.

What the FB centric naysayers thought isn't coming true. There is value in basketball and other Olympic Sports for Conference Networks. It isn't just about Sept to Nov. The ACC delivers other sports at a very high level.

At this point it's not being carried by Spectrum, the cable provider for vast portions of the ACC footprint including the overwhelming majority of North Carolina (including the Triangle) and large portions of ACC states Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, and New York.

Charter Spectrum's carriage contract with ESPN has expired and a temporary extension has been agreed to by both parties. I would suspect that Charter wont be able to finalize a new carriage agreement unless they agree to the ACC network in similar terms to the SEC Network that currently exist

Yeah I think even the naysayers (you know who you are) have to admit this is a pretty damn good roll out so far.

Really only three Big Boys left: Comcast, Cox and Dish.

Dish I hear is announcing soon.

With UVA winning the hoops title and Clemson winning the football title, it is an ideal year to roll this out.

But IMO, the carriage coverage was never an issue. It's not like 10 years ago, when it was a big deal to get your channel in 80 million homes or whatever. Basically, unless you are inept like the PAC, any channel sponsored by a big network - CBS, NBC, FOX, and especially ABC/ESPN is going to have pretty much saturation coverage.

The big issues are the tiers you are on, and even moreso, the initial carriage rate and then what you can renew for going forward, and that will depend on viewership and sponsorship, which we have to wait and see about. I expect success, because even though the ACC is easily the most freakish/thrown together of the Power conferences, its a freak that works in terms of results on the field and in having major brand names.

RE: ACC Network Launch Set
Opening ACCN with a banner raising national champs ceremony and traditional Clemson-GT rivalry was a shrewd move. So was a quadruple header in Week 2. So was a Notre Dame road game later on. So was the 4 in-conference BB openers on the first 2 nights.

This network has been managed flawlessly.

They're even having a special edition of Gameday for the Clemson/GT game, and watch parties for Miami/UF and Louisville/ND. Check out all the football coverage right out of the gate: FB on ACCN

It is on the Select Package for Spectrum. Pretty much the most common package they have.
