Looking for genuine discussion here not necessarily a bunch of "shade throwing" towards Swafford (although every bit of it would be warranted).
What good is the ACCN if it rarely shows live sports? I cannot begin to count how many times it is either showing reruns or "documentaries" when there are live championship events taking place.
What good is the ACCN with a single channel? You can scroll through the SECN, BIGN and PACN to find multiple channels regularly showing live events. Why is it that the ACCN only has a single channel?
What good is the ACCN if it can't purchase (I know there are weird contract issues regularly. Please feel free to discuss their legitimacy or illegitimacy below) games from RSNs. VT games blacked out in the Shenandoah Valley? Seriously?
What good is the ACCN if it isn't working to bring viewers to the table by broadcasting the live events? Who is actually watching all these things that it is regularly airing?
If you want my opinion, the ACC, BIG & PAC (although the BIG has zero incentive to do this now) should take their "alliance" to FOX for the purpose of negotiating a mega TV deal and leave ESECPN.
And as a side note: I don't think theres any way the ACC can survive the next 12 years with the contract it currently has. It's absolutely embarrassing.
OK - would love to hear opinions, ideas and factual statements concerning the ACCN specifically and these types of TV deals generally. Additionally, is there any indication our new Commissioner is working on this?
