The ACC Network is almost ready to launch. If you are a Verizon Fios customer, you’re in luck.
The network, which is scheduled to go live at 7 p.m. on Aug. 22, will be available on a variety of cable networks and streaming platforms, including Fios.
Tony McNary, a Verizon spokesman, said customers that have a regional sports network (such as YES Network) as part of their current package will automatically get the ACC Network when it launches. Customers that do not have a regional sport network will have to change their package in order to receive it.
The ACC Network has secured agreements with many cable and digital carriers, including DirecTV, Google Fiber, Hulu Live TV, Optimum, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV. A deal with Spectrum was recently announced.
Comcast/Xfinity, DISH and Cox are among the carriers that have not yet reached agreements to carry the ACC Network.
The ACC Network will kick off with a 2-hour edition of All-ACC, its flagship studio show that will cover all of the league’s sports and serve as an introduction to the network’s on-air personalities.
ACCN will offer live ACC sports and related studio programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The network plans to televise about 450 live events annually, including 40 regular season football games, 150 men’s and women’s basketball games, and 200 other regular season competitions and tournament games from across the conference’s 27 sponsored sports.
Games that originally air on the other ESPN networks can re-air on ACCN but there are currently no plans to broadcast bowl games.
