ACC Network launches as college football season gets underway
A week after the official launch of the ACC Network, the question of which carriers will provide access to Triangle area viewers has largely been answered.
As of Aug. 30, customers of pretty much every cable, satellite and streaming service will have access to the new network, with AT&T U-verse and AT&T TV being the lone holdouts.
The network — a partnership between the ACC and ESPN — has contracts with Charter’s Spectrum (the largest provider in the state), Google Fiber TV, DirecTV and DISH (of the providers available to local viewers).
(NOTE: If you are a Spectrum customer but find you do not have access to ACC Network, you are likely a Time Warner “legacy” customer. Please read this for more info on how to get ACCN.)
For those with streaming services, there is a deal with YouTube TV, Hulu Live TV (note that this is not the same as regular Hulu), PlayStation Vue and Sling.
There is no deal in place with AT&T TV (formerly DirecTV Now) or Fubo.
The deals with DISH and Sling came while Thursday’s inaugural game was in progress.
There is no option to subscribe to stream the ACC Network for a monthly fee, the way one might for HBO Now or CBS All Access.
