How can Comcast in Charlottesville not offer the acc network? We pay so much each month and have an internet that works when it feels like it, can't pick the channels and services off of a many and now we don't even have an acc network option . What is the problem.

Folks.

 

Believe me, no one understands the frustration with you folks in ACC country more than I do.  Being in the Chicago area, we lost the whole first year of Big Ten Network in 2007-08 because Comcast and Fox Sports couldn't come up with a deal (and among the games we missed was the infamous APPST/MICH contest on the network's first full football day of existence, plus a boatload of basketball, baseball and others).  They finally ironed a deal out in time for the 2008-09 football season.

 

And I can only imagine what kind of bitter dispute Comcast will have when it comes to negotiating with the Cubs and Sinclair for their new channel for next February, especially considering that Comcast and the Cubs were formerly partners in what used to be Comcast SportsNet Chicago (now NBC Sports Chicago).

 

It's unfortunate that these things come down to this (and I'm not taking Comcast's side in this dispute), but Comcast weathered that storm and they'll likely weather this one.  I know it doesn't make anyone necessarily feel better about missing GT/CLEM and other subsequent games down the road without switching providers.

 

Just some food for thought.

I am very upset about Comcast’s apparent decision not to carry the ACC Network! Is this decision going to be changed? Just another reason to leave you guys for another provider!

I pay a fortune for the 8 channels I watch. No A La Cart programming, and now you wont add the acc network. I no longer have a reason to keep comcast xfinity

Can you please add the ACC Network to your list of channels?  And while you're at it, please don't require one to pay an arm and leg for it.

Why don't you have ACC NETWORK with me paying $234/month for Comcast.  I pay Google fiber and You Tube TV a total of $100/ month and have it.  I watched the Georgia TEch Clemson Football game last night thanks to Google fiber and You Tube TV for less than half of what you charge without ACC Network.  What do you think I will keep Comcast $234/month without or GOOGLE Fiber and You Tube TV $100/month with ACC Network?  Thanks for overcharging me and offering less!

Dear Comcast,

I hope you are proud of yourself that you caused your loyal customers to MISS THE MOST IMPORTANT KICK OFF GAME OF THE ACC NETWORK - CLEMSON (the reigning National Champions) vs. GEORGIA TECH!!!!  I join my fellow customers in stating that this is a huge disappointment and failure.  You knew this was coming and FAILED TO ACT TO GET THIS DEAL DONE.   Other carriers were able to do so - I'm sorry COMCAST - YOU FAILED YOUR CUSTOMERS!!  

I DEMAND AN UPDATE AND RESPONSE AS TO WHEN THIS CHANNEL WILL BE ADDED.

I was actually hoping this could be put into the "ACC Network" thread, which is supposedly locked for further replies yet other people are somehow able to reply (while I can't).  Could one of the mods take care of that?

Quite disappointed that the ACC Network is not being offered. I live in an ACC town and would gladly trade in SEC for ACC. Come on Comcast, give this to us!

The problem is that the quality of programming the ACCN is currently bringing to the table is very very poor.  The conference should just be renamed to the Clemson Conference since the other football members are complete jokes!

 

Since the ACC is a basketball conference by and large, they will have more negotiating power when basketball season rolls around.  But as it stands now, there are absolutely no competitive games on that channel.  I applaud Comcast for not giving Mickey any more money.

Considering some people in New Jersey can't get Yankees games without leaving Comcast, it wouldn't surprise me.  (Most of the rest of the NYC metro area is Spectrum or Optimum, so not the biggest deal in the world there.)  🙂

Whay isn't Comcast carrying the ACC network in  the Boston and New England markets?  Geopgraphically the ACC network makes more sense than the Big 10 or SEC networks which are both carried on Comcast now.
