ACC Network to Launch on Comcast in the Coming Weeks



ACC Network

Comcast is one of the largest cable providers in the United States, but the ACC Network — which has rapidly become the way to watch conference athletics — has not been available for customers.

That’s about to change as Comcast and the Walt Disney Company announced a renewed content carriage agreement Tuesday morning that will enable Xfinity customers to finally access the ACC Network. The network will be distributed in the coming weeks across the country.

This, of course, means that Pitt fans in the Pittsburgh area will soon have access to Pitt athletics. Although, it perhaps would have been more prevalent to iron out this deal out months ago.

With the rapidly changing landscape of college athletics, television deals serving as a driving force in the conference realignment saga that began over the summer and the formation of “The Alliance”, the ACC Network’s inclusion with Comcast is a big deal for the conference from a financial standpoint.

The renewed agreement will also provide Comcast customers with continued access to ESPN’s wide span of networks, Disney branded channels, Freeform, the FX networks, the National Geographic channels and the SEC Network — which enters its eighth season. Additionally, ESPN+ and Disney+ will remain available to Comcast customers.

This agreement never would have happened if fans hadn’t put pressure on Comcast
