ACC weighs pros and cons of starting its own channel

Saturday, August 03, 2013

While a number of media consultants agree that an ACC channel could be a boon for the conference long-term, they also warn that the initial hurdles to forming a channel and gaining distribution are more burdensome than some realize and likely will take years. This isn’t the first time the ACC has considered starting a channel. The league had discussions in 2007. But the Big Ten began its network then, one that struggled initially after early distribution woes and startup costs. (Virginian-Pilot)
