ACC Network

Re: ACC Network

As another Xfinity subscriber, I too am asking that the ACC NETWORK be added to your Sports lineup. Our package currently carries the SEC NETWORK.  It only makes business sense that the ACC NETWORK be added to this lineup to satisfy those customers that are not SEC fans.

Casting my vote to ensure Comcast/Xfinity carries the ACC Network

ACC Network

Will Xfinity be carrying the ACC Network in time for the Clemson/Ga Tech kickoff? I'm a Clemson fan in Florida, and if Xfinity does not carry the game I will drop my Comcast service that day. It is time for Comcast to give us an answer besides "we don't know yet", and then close our posts as "answered".
Thanks.

Why do you not carry ACCN?

You carry the SEC Network of southern colleges for a sports netwrk. But the new ACCN Nwetwork- which is carried by FIOS and Direct for me to change to after more than a decade with Comcast. The ACC has last years national football champion- Clemson and the best basketball conference year anfter year- and many grads from schools in PA MA FLA NC and the whole east coast, and includes, Notre Dame. As a UNC-CH Grad, it is very important to me to watch these games. <edited>

Thanks for your interest.


This network is not scheduled to be available until August 22, 2019.

 

Our content and programming teams are in regular contact with ESPN (one of the owners and the distribution arm for this network) on many topics, including this network.

 

The Comcast programming teams and our local management teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations.

 

As with any network contract, we want to come to an agreement that offers the best terms for our customers and our company that keeps both our costs and our customer's monthly costs to a minimum.

 

Situations may change based on customer demand, channel bandwidth opportunities, business opportunities, costs and contractual obligations. Thanks for your feedback, your passion and your patience. It has been shared with the right teams.

 

If/when a decision and contract is announced, we will be sure and make that information widely known in many places.

 

Other providers may have announced that they have a contract to start offering this programming once the channel launches (August 22, 2019). Our teams continue to negotiate.

 

Thanks for your patience.

The ACC Network starts broadcasting in August. Why hasn’t Xfinity contracted to air this yet? We want this!

Re: ACC Network

Add my name to the list of subscribers whose future with Comcast/Xfinity will be determined by whether or not they carry the ACC Network. Not having it will 100% prompt me to go elsewhere.

Re: ACC Network

As a GT alum (B.S., M.S. in C.S.) you can take your sweet time negotiating with the ACC because the Clemson game is going to be an unwatchable horror show . I expect great things from Collins his recruiting is amazing but playing his first game, New staff, offense, everything, on the road at the best team in the country.... Like seriously I'm not worried in the slightest about this. Just get it done by 2020.

Re: ACC Network

Hi there, ah1121. 

 

I believe since this is a part of ESPN, that you will be able to log in online, through the ESPN site. I did some reading into it and the network has not launched until next month. 

 

I would keep on eye out on emails and communications we might send, if it becomes an available TV channel.

Re: Is ACC network coming to COMCAST in August?

FWIW this thread is very similar to the one when SECN.  Right up until the last minute and voilà! there it was, ready for the season.  But, like with SECN, ACCN will be partnered with ESPN so no games should be lost for viewing. 

 

Hang tight!

Is comcast going to add the ACC Network soon. Also, for those of us in the South Bend area, can we get an option to choose the ACC over the Big 10 network?

I know the official answer to this, but just wanted to add my note to the chorus. If Xfinity doesn't carry the ACC Network, I will be canceling my cable service and switching to Hulu streaming.

It sure would be a great sales & marketing tool for Comcast Xfiniti to pick up the ACC Network, especially right now with few others having it. Also, it’s almost football season!

Just wanted to let you know that if the ACC network is not available later this month before the first game of the season I will be switching to Verizon FIOS. I live closer to 6 acc schools than I do to 1 sec or big 10 school yet those channels are available. Clocks ticking...

You seem to be suggesting that ACC fans be satisfied with ACC extra. Not happening. You will be solely responsible for me not being able to see BC upset Clemson. (Maybe not) Again, I pay you over 230 dollars a month. We all know what extra is. What good is the Sec to me here in an ACC area. Get the ACC network.

ACC NETWORK

To Whom It May Concern I am a current subscriber to Comcast. It has come to my attention your company still does not have an agreement to carry the upcoming ACC Network when it launches in August. Please know that due to the amount of FSU football games that will be carried by this channel it will be a deal breaker if you do not carry the ACC Network. DirecTV, Hulu, and Playstation Vue have already announced it will carry the ACC Network at launch. If you do not add the ACC Network by August I will end up having to cancel my service and go with a provider that does offer the channel.

Re: ACC Network

With all due respect that answer is not good enough. Decisions must be made in the next few days on the need to switch to another carrier.

Re: ACC Network

Most of the past 40 years I have been a Comcast customer, but I may leave over this nonsense of playing around with a channel many of your customers (providers of your income) really want.

 

The whole East Coast is largely Atlantic Coast Conference country and many are loyal to the conference and or their schools. 

 

How can we the customer influence what is carried? This may cause me to have to go to just internet and stream what I want on Hulu.  230 channels of which I watch maybe 20 in a month.

 

ATT home phone has ~ 50MBPS over the cell tower and offers DirectTV streaming at no data count. Total cost just over 100 a month.  Xfinity inaction has got me thinking gain.

Re: ACC network

As a long time subscriber to Comcast, I am concerned  that the ACC Network starts up on August 22nd, and it appears that Comcast still hasn't signed up to carry it. This network is a "must have" for me, and I will have to switch to Hulu or PS Vue or some other provider if Comcast does not have it. I don't want to leave Comcast, as I prefer many of it's features, but I must have the ACC network. Thank you.

Re: ACC Network

We will find another telecommunications provider if Comcast/xfinity does not make the ACC Network available. It should be included automatically in the Sports Package.

Re: ACC Network

Does Comcast even care. Your answers seem to suggest a so what attitude toward what you are doing to those of us that NEED the ACCN.

 

Your service is shaky at best. To hang in with you without the ACCN will make me reconsider the 230 a month you get from me.

 

Why not Verizon for far less money? They do not have the ACCN either but for far less dough.  I am an old technically challenged person but I am assured by people I know that they can hook me up with a streaming service that has the Accn.

Hi Comcast

 

Requesting that you don't add the ACC Network in the NY/NJ area. There's no local schools in the area and most folks are uninterested in charges for another wasted channel that few people watch resulting in even higher cable bills.
