Atlantic Broadband, the eighth-largest broadband provider in the U.S., will launch ESPN’s ACC Network (ACCN) on its channel lineups on September 1.
ACCN is a 24/7 multi-platform national network dedicated to coverage of the Atlantic Coast Conference. ACCN televises more than 500 regular-season and tournament games from across the conference’s 27 sponsored sports plus a complement of news and information shows and original programming.

The network will be carried on Atlantic Broadband Expanded Basic Variety tiers in those states with ACC institutions and on the Digital Basic Family tier in other markets. Customers with corresponding Atlantic Broadband subscriptions may also access ACCNX through the ESPN App.
“We are excited to add tremendous value to our channel lineups with the addition of ACCN,” said Heather McCallion, Vice President of Products and Programming for Atlantic Broadband. “This latest enhancement will bring fans of the Atlantic Coast Conference the biggest matchups in college football and much more just as the season begins.”
