ACC Network Extra Will No Longer Be Available on Sling TV Unless a New Deal is Reached
On August 22, ACC Network (ACCN) will be the latest college sports network to launch from a major college conference. ACCN is a collaboration between the ACC and ESPN to bring 24/7 programming on the ACC member schools.
Sling currently has many Disney-owned channels in their Sling Orange pack including ACC Network Extra, but that’s about to change. ACC Network Extra will no longer be available on Sling TV unless a new agreement is struck by August 22nd to carry ACC Network. The overflow channel, recently renamed ACCNX, which will air 400 additional live events — will only be be available for subscribers of services carrying ACC Network.
While we’ve heard Disney is having productive conversations with Dish to carry the channel for Sling TV — no deal is currently in place. For subscribers of services carrying ACC Network, you can use your TV Everywhere credentials to ACC Network Extra (ACCNX) through the ESPN App.
Included in the more than 800 hours of live programming on ACCNX:
- 168 volleyball games
- 108 women’s soccer games
- 91 men’s soccer games
- 42 field hockey games
- 5 football games
- 2019 ACC Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championships
The first ACCNX telecasts will kick off on August 22 with seven women’s soccer games. Also, all live events airing on the network will be available via replay on ACCNX for 30 days following the airing ACC Network.
