B Sharps - So many games on new ACC network, so many cable carriers don't have it yet. Lame.

It's so fucked up. I'm thinking about subscribing to PlayStation Vue just to see more football.

 

I have some issues. Another 50 a month just to watch some college teams you don't give a shit about? Fuck yeah. Here's my money.

I'm really pissed because it is the channel the ECU/NC State game is on this Saturday. Though I fully expect State to kick the dogs shit out of us, it is Mike Houston and staff's first game, so hoping the beatdown won't be as bad as last year. Then again everyone pretty much beat us down last year.

Not where I'm at unless you have Direct TV or have one of the streaming services it is on like PS Vue. Lots of folks mad in that they didn't reach an agreement yet with Comcast, Cox, At&T, Dish and a couple others.

Dish and Direct makeup 99% of satellite and 1/3 of all subscribers. Spectrum has it and they're the largest cable provider

 

Not everyone does but certainly most do

I stand corrected on Dish then, I read on an article earlier today that they didn't have it yet.

According to this article they reached a "handshake" last minute deal with Dish

And from that article above:
"
As of late August, ACC Network has found itself in a bit of a tough spot, as they have yet to finalize deals with several cable and satellite television providers - which is sure to cause fans a terrible inconvenience. One of the providers that ACC Network has yet to agree to terms with is DISH Network. But for the special circumstance of Week One, DISH Network is extending an olive branch to the league, its teams, and its fans.

According to a report by John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, DISH Network will show ACC Network on Thursday night, as it airs its first-ever game between the Clemson Tigers and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. In addition, ACC Network and ACC Network Extra have both been added as a free preview to Sling TV's Orange package. According to Ourand, no deal has been signed between the two parties, making their agreement essentially a "handshake deal".

It was a last minute deal over the last two days, and I think only available through certain packages.

It’s still a joke. DirecTV is the largest satellite provider and it only has 21 million subscribers. Compare that to Comcast, who has the largest subscription base of 113 million, and you realize why so many people can’t view it.

What other conference channel has been better at launch? SEC network and who else?

 

Not perfect but they got 99% of the satellite market, largest cable provider, and major streaming services in era of cord cutting. If it's popular the other cable providers will sign on. If not they won't

They’re not the largest cable provider by anything other than number of states. They have less subscribers, and less revenue than Comcast.

99% of the satellite market is like being the tallest midget, especially when a portion of that market is limited to certain packages. 

The Pac-12 network is a joke, and even they managed to lock down just about everything but DirecTV at launch.

I like their defensive strategy of 10 yard cushions for all receivers.

Ha, they was a hell of a turnover by UCLA. He just gave that away.
