Dish last night reached an ‘agreement in principle’ to carry the ACC Network both on its satellite TV service, and its live streaming service, Sling TV.
The deal enabled the two TV providers to air last night’s ACC Network broadcast of the Clemson-Georgia Tech game. This was the network’s first live broadcast of a college football game. The ACC Network, which is owned by ESPN, launched on August 22.
The ACC Network is also carried by DIRECTV, Charter Spectrum, DIRECTV, Charter Spectrum, YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live (as opposed to Hulu, the Video on Demand service), Verizon FiOS, Optimum, the NRTC, members of the NCTC, Suddenlink, Google Fiber, TVision, and several small cable and telco companies.
There are still a few notable holdouts, however, including Comcast, U-verse, AT&T TV Now and Cox.
