ACC Network is Coming to YouTube TV, Joining PS Vue & Hulu + Live TV
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 like Duke, Miami, Clemson, Florida State, Syracuse, and UNC.
The network announced today that they will be available on YouTube TV, after previously announcing agreements with Hulu Live TV and PlayStation Vue. While they have a deal with DIRECTV, there is no mention as to whether it will be available on AT&T TV NOW (formerly DIRECTV NOW).
ACCN will air 40 football games per season, more than 150 men’s and women’s basketball games, and 200 other regular-season competitions. Additional events will be available on ACC Network Extra (ACCNE) which is already available on PlayStation Vue and Sling TV.
Streaming services have had particularly strong carriage of major college sports networks like Big Ten Network and SEC Network. Both PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV each carry BTN and SEC Network, while fuboTV carries Pac-12 Network and BTN.
