The idea behind conference networks is to generate revenue and, of course, provide more sports coverage. The ACC Network will do just that and will benefit conference schools in ways they may not have imagined. With additional eyes on all of the schools in the conference there will eventually be an uptick in applications. When it comes to business, you’re either growing or you’re dying.
So we have the ACC Network and along with it comes some valid statements. Those of you whose cable/tv providers haven’t come to an agreement (yet) with Disney (owner of ESPN) have taken one of two routes. The more tech savvy or with current equipment have dropped the provider and moved toward a wide variety of streaming content companies. Others, whether it be because of the content you’ll miss out on with a switch or myriad other good reasons are hanging in hoping for something to change.
We hope you find a happy middle ground somewhere in this journey and can watch the ACC Network. Not just for the added sports coverage but also for the in-depth content, interviews, personality based programs and much more. Because we cover the ACC we’ve had (perhaps) more of an opportunity to see what’s coming. It’s good, really good.
So, a look at the schedule of games that are coming up is in order. This fall we’ll see nationally ranked football, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and field hockey. Basketball isn’t that far off either and some of the early games will be barn burners.
