ACC Network

Will Comcast be getting the ACC Network before College Football Season Starts.  i'm not talking about ACC Extra.

This GA Tech fan will be looking for another carrier if the ACC Network is not in my lineup by August 22nd. I've enjoyed Xfinity, but there are just too many choices out there, and I'll find one that I can watch Tech football with.

Yes - I would beg of Comcast to add the ACC Network. If they don't get it, that would be a big reason for me to drop Comcast and switch to someone that does carry it.

Definitely dropping Comcast fails to include ACC Network. May do it anyway for making this a Questionable issue.

Please add my name to the list of people strongly requesting that Comcast add the ACC Network to programming in the Atlanta area

A number of articles have popped up on the Internet in the past few days concerning how the ACC network has not cut a deal with a number of cable/satellite companies. They seem to have two things in common: one, "Well, a lot of these negotiations come down to the wire" (for example, ESPN 's current deal with Charter/Spectrum is up for renewal in early August), and two, a number of ACC schools' athletic departments are saying, "It's up to the fan base to get the cable companies to agree to carry the network."

 

You would think that the cable companies that service the Atlanta area would want to be sure that Georgia Tech's first two games (against Clemson and South Florida, both of which will be on ACC Network) would be available.

I would very much like the ACCN added to the Comcast Xfinity Channel lineup. If they don't add it, then I will switch to a carrier that does. 

 

Thanks!!

Please add the ACC network to our line up. I do find it extremely important to keeping my service with xfinity. It will be hard to justify having SEC network and not ACC. Especially in Florida when we're have 2 ACC schools and 1 SEC school. Thank you

I sure hope ACCN is added on the same tier as SECN or Big Ten Network, both of which I have. I would like to have all three, but here in Virginia I would prefer the ACCN over the Big Ten Network.

Really need Xfinity to pickup the ACC network. A big reason I keep xfinity is to watch live sports, will have to look elsewhere if the ACC network isn't picked up.

Hi @atljeff

 

Welcome to the Xfinity Forums! That's a great question. I am waiting to find out as well. I asked around and was informed we recently received a proposal from ESPN regarding carrying the ACC Network and are reviewing it. Other than that, we have no other details to share at this time. When/if it is determined we will carry it, it will be announced here on the Forums and you should even get a notice about this on your monthly statements along with other notices about changes to your service. Let's keep our fingers crossed that we know something soon. I hope this helps.

I'll highlight this, as I think it needs to be pointed out:


ACC Network does not exist yet. It will not start broadcasting until August 22.

 

What most of the people here are talking/worried about is the fact that there is no deal in place yet with Comcast to carry it when it does start - and they would like it as soon as it does, since it will be carrying the Clemson - Georgia Tech football game on August 29.

I can appreciate the negotiating process. However, an announcement needs to be made soon. If this is not going to happen (or no announcement made), I will be changing providers. Please let us know.

Please put me down as another who absolutely wants the ACC Network @ Kick-off.  The only reason I still have Comcast Cable is because of College football, specfically the ACC.
