From the link:


Quote:“The one thing that we would never take to the bank on any rights deal we do is how things will pan out competitively. That’s out of everyone’s control,” Magnus said. “It’s been interesting that there’s been a fair amount of transition at the university [two new revenue-sport head coaches, new athletic director, new president], but when we got into this, we got comfortable with a very long term approach. Channel deals tend to be of that ilk; you don’t make a three- or five-year deal.

“The reason we were so comfortable with Texas and remain so is that regardless of the last four years of performance on the field, their track record speaks for itself over decades. We don’t worry about that because if we did, that’s all we would worry about, whether it was Texas or the SEC or the NFL or the NBA.


now we are good.

I am not predicting Texas to the ACC. But if it happens, it will NOT be about the money. If anything, this is POSITIVE toward Texas to the ACC, because the LHN is not just being scrapped. Meaning that the ACC or SEC are the far best options, since they are ESPN properties already.

And I'd say the ACC would be even more likely to accommodate the LHN in terms of branding than the SEC would. i.e. the ACC Network in Texas could BE the Longhorn Network, and might carry more Texas-centric programming than the ACC network, but still the best of the live ACC content.

The stickiness of the LHN probably makes the Big 12 more stable, but it also strongly limits Texas' options if they want to make a change.

RE: ACC Network or bust?
NEW Update!!! Article from 19 April 2015.........

Verizon reaches Internet TV deal with the ACC Digital Network among others. Verizon expects to roll out the “mobile-first” pay-TV service in the second half of 2015, likely with between 20 and 30 channels, aimed at younger consumers who aren’t interested in full-blown cable TV, CEO Lowell McAdam said at a conference in January. Verizon Communications announced a series of deals for college-sports programming — indicating, perhaps, that the telco considered full sports networks too pricey for the millennial-targeted offering.

The next question I’m sure people are wondering is does it mean anything for actual ACC Cable Television Channel?
In the entire scope of an ACC Channel, I would say no. Negotiations are still on going, and this news does not affect it. Where it could matter is in the fine print details. It was generally assumed any ACC Channel would be a near copy of the SEC Network. Certainly there will some similarities, because both will be ESPN channels, but now more than ever I believe Raycom will be part of this partnership. Raycom operates the ACCDN, and in my opinion that would continue even with an ACC Channel.

In addition, I’m beginning to think that the Raycom syndication of ACC Games is going to continue in some form or fashion. 97 Million homes receive this syndication package. As @Hokiesmash and I discussed with Fox Sports Announcer @WesDurham on a recent podcast, there exists some possibility the ACC Channel could be hybrid of the SEC Network with the syndication package continuing to exist in some way.
How often in past years did ACC have to split coverage for two basketball games on it’s syndicated package?
It’s a simple solution going forward. The ACC Channel gets one game, and Raycom gets the other. No more split coverage. There may be enough content to support both. At one time, I thought Raycom would lose it’s syndication package with a new ACC Channel, but now I’m not so sure.

So my first thoughts on this...(Verizon deal )sounds much like what some have said ACC might try.... And the ESPN/RAYCOM....sounds like the same thing we heard from the winter meetings.... It is coming!!!

What do you think the Verizon deal entails? All it means is that you can watch the ACCDN Youtube channel on their platform. And all the ACCDN Youtube channel has is a bunch of short highlight clips and "top X" lists. I'm not even sure they offer archived game rebroadcasts.

And your "ESPN/Raycom"..."same thing we heard at the winter meetings"..."it's coming" talk? Nothing from that article implies "it's coming".

Verizon deal sounds interesting.

If I could get all GT games on a pay-for ACC TV channel with delivery through a web browser / mobile ... I'd pull the plug on cable tomorrow. But I would have to get ALL the football and basketball games. I'm fine with an ESPN broadcast game airing the next day on said channel. But it must air on that channel. And some baseball too.

Do you think that's what this ACCDN/Verizon deal is? I agree that would be nice. But I'm not sure that will EVER happen because what would be the purpose of watching games on ABC/ESPN(X) or a future ACCN (if it ever materializes)? The networks would be hamstringing their own profits.

This is very true. But I think that if the Acc could have a digital network that each schools fans could watch all of their schools games, why would the Acc even need a network if they can monetize it by charging a subscription fee for such a digital network. They would also exclude ESPN from such a deal.
