ACC Network Launches on AT&T TV NOW Following New Deal with Disney
In late August, ACC Network (ACCN) became 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.
When it launched, it had wide distribution across PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, and joined Sling TV in a last minute deal. While the channel had been carried on DIRECTV since launch, ACC Network wasn’t available on AT&T TV NOW.
As part of what seems like their new deal with Disney, ACC Network is now available to customers on the AT&T TV NOW MAX plan ($70). Those on legacy plans will have access to the channel if they have the Just Right, Go Big, or Even More plans.
