ACC weighs pros and cons of starting its own channel

Saturday, August 03, 2013

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)
