ACC Network - Notre Dame at Virginia Tech

How are Comcast customers supposed to watch the Notre Dame at Virginia Tech college football game scheduled for 7:30pm on October 9th if the ACC Network has not yet been added to the Comcast channel lineup? This seems like a pretty big game for Comcast viewers to be missing out on. Please get a deal in place before this game so the ACC Network is on Comcast!

Comcast, I noticed on the contract renewals page at https://my.xfinity.com/contractrenewals that Disney owned channels (including ESPN entities) are being negotiated for renewal this month. Can you provide an update on when these negotiations will be finalized?

Hello @user_17d6fb. While we have no plans to launch the channel now, we regularly evaluate our channel lineups as our customers' interests change and make changes that we think will add more value to their Xfinity services. You can still watch some ACC games on channels like the ESPN networks, FOX Sports, FS1 and CBS Sports via the Xfinity X1 and Stream Sports guides. Just search for "Sports" or say "Sports" into your Xfinity Voice Remote.

For games carried exclusively by the ACC Network, you can watch using online streaming platforms like YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV and Sling Orange Plus Sports Extra.

No I cannot!  There is not Notre Dame or Boston College.  All ACC are blocked by xfinity even though I have bought the ESPN+ app.  [Edited: "Language:].

Ps.  I have tried with my vpn to watch but not certain where I need to look.  It is not old fashioned tv anymore.  Everything seems to be digital.

Does HULU have the games?  Disney is forcing to buy a $13.00/Mo package to include ESPN+, HULU, and Disney+.

please send me a direct message and i can show you a myriad of ways of how to watch the game.

unfortunately, Disney wont give comcast access to this channel (remember, there are 2 parties to this issue, and comcast isnt the only one)

@billmich88888 , thanks for the help, but I am aware of all the alternative streaming services that are out there that include ACC Network in their channel lineups. All of which I could do the free trial.

However, the main point of my comment is for Comcast to get content for its customers that should already be on the Xfinity channel lineup. Especially, since the Notre Dame vs Virginia Tech game should be drawing a large TV audience. I understand that there is an ongoing carriage negotiation between Disney and Comcast, and would appreciate knowing when and/or if ACC Network will be provided to Xfinity TV customers.
