Here is your second assignment, Panther Nation!
You have no doubt heard about the imminent launch of ACC Network (ACCN), a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week channel solely dedicated to the Atlantic Coast Conference.
After much anticipation, the ACC Network’s time is now—ACCN will make its historic debut this Thursday, August 22.
Agreements with four national providers are already in place, giving everyone the ability to access ACC Network: DIRECTV, YouTube TV, Hulu Live TV and PlayStation Vue.
Additionally, deals are in place with Charter/Spectrum, Google Fiber, Verizon Fios, TVision, Optimum, Suddenlink, as well as more than 60 other providers.
Here’s where we need to rally Pitt fans everywhere.
Go to GetACCN.com and see if your local cable provider is set to carry ACC Network. If your provider is not listed, contact them and demand that it carry ACCN as part of its channel lineup.
As of this writing, if you are a customer of Comcast Xfinity, DISH Network, CenturyLink, Frontier Communications or Armstrong Cable, you will NOT have access to the ACC Network in this market to watch upcoming games through your cable provider.
Your options are to either switch providers or persistently demand ACCN be added to your cable service.
For your reference, here are the phone numbers of those providers not yet on board:
- Comcast Xfinity: (800) 934-6489
- DISH Network: (800) 333-3474
- CenturyLink: 866-642-0444
- Frontier Communications: (855) 617-4470
- Armstrong Cable: (877) 486-4666
- Atlantic Broadband: (888) 536-9600
- Blue Ridge/Pencor: (800) 222-5377
- Consolidated Communications: (888) 723-1606
- Zito Media: (800) 365-6988
Pitt Athletics and the ACC remain confident that the success of the ACC Network will continue to expand its coverage with additional providers. However, those carriers who have not yet signed up must realize the level of interest of Panther fans as well as our fellow ACC members.
Thank you for being a tremendous teammate of the Panthers. Your passion and support are integral to our student-athletes’ championship aspirations!
Hail to Pitt!
Director of Athletics
