Have you asked ESPN? What did they say.
I've been asking for a year now and AT&T/Direct TV carries it, so I will be moving on to one of these carriers as soon as my contract is up. Don't understand how Comcast won't compete with these carriers. And I really don't want to leave, but don't have a choice.
I'm stumped, I can watch the Big Ten network (luv it) and even the PAC TEN network (no interest) but not the local ACC network. I know I don't speak for everybody, but this makes no sense noy to to be able to watch the local teams$$$$
just a shame Xfinity still does not offer ACC network, but they have PAC 12, Big 10 and SEC network available.
anyway, some of you may know this but if you join the free You Tube trial(which could be a week or up to a month), that is one way to watch ACC network for free. 😊
The basic answer I was told by someone on the ESPN side was that Comcast isn't going to carry the ACC network until the current deal expires and at that time they will likely negotiate a deal for all the channels. I went the Hulu route until Hulu dropped the RSN's. Right now, the only carrier in my area that has both the ACCN and the RSN is DirecTV. The ACC games seem to be split between the ACCN and the RSN. So, unless you go sat. you aren't going to see all the games you want to see.
ESPN's business model is to spread the games out as much as possible between their various channels to leverage the carriers into carrying all the ESPN family of channels. Carriers don't like to have to pay for a bunch of channels. So the problem is on both sides. Of course, the real issue is with the ACC for signing the deal with ESPN without including a way to make sure their fanbase can actually see the games.
There was an earlier reply that referenced XUMO and ACC Network-that is incorrect.
ACC Digital Network is the name of the channel provided by XUMO, via the Xfinity apps. Appears "live games" are not shown.
Condensed games & highlights and things of that nature are on ACC DN.
How on Gods green earth do we still not have the ACC Network on Xfinity this day and time???? We have dang big 10 network and they dont even have teams in this area!!!!!!! Please apply ACC Network ASAP or will have to switch back to Direc TV when contract is up!
