That is great news. There was no way Spectrum would not carry the ACC Network come basketball season and risk losing 1/2 the stars of North Carolina. Glad they came to terms now and not latter.

YES!!!!!!

They were going to lose a lot more subscribers if they kept pushing back.

It will vary by local hub. Not every Spectrum home has the $EC network on 804. However, I would expect it to be listed on the *guide* very soon.

AT&T is poised to be the big loser here. At least with U-verse.

DirecTV and DirecTV Now are actually 2 different companies owned by ATT and not affiliated with one another and why DirecTV Now is changing its name to ATT TV Now to avoid further confusion.

It is unsure if DirecTV Now will have the ACC Network. When I called them they knew nothing of the addition.

Sling and DirecTV Now both don't have it as of my posting. Sling seems pretty indifferent to adding it on the numerous occasions I've asked them

Glad to hear it. I was already exploring other options.

As of today in the Northern Central / Southern Six Mile Spectrum area, there is a placeholder on the guide at 816 for "To Be Announced". 815 is also an unclaimed number, but it doesn't even show up as a prospective channel.

Yes, but I dont have a dish and it isnt in U-Verse's lineup. Make no mistake, they are still two different entities regardless of the same owner and they are, at least up now, alienating their U-Verse customers. By next week, I will have dropped them and gone with YouTube TV and I know a decent size group of guys who will be doing the same.

Sling Orange is showing they have "ACC Network Extra". Is that not going to carry the football games?

I have YouTube TV at my house because DIRECTV costs a fortune. DISH has been there only competition in my rural community or a long time.

Regarding the channel, I was told earlier this summer that if Spectrum did add the ACC Network it would be replacing the ESPN news channel. This was a few months ago, so I'm not sure if that is still the plan....

I plan to run them both through YouTube TVs trial just make sure I know what I’m getting but I am almost to that point where UVerses special monthly payment is about to run out. I that point, pricing is ridiculous.

How do you like YT TV?

No, that is a totally separate Internet-Only channel. It will not be the ACCNetwork when it launches.

I have Sling, I have asked them multiple times to be sure. As of today, they won't carry the ACCNetwork at launch (I'm switching to Playstation Vue)
