There’s one huge behemoth you don’t see on this list here (see #21 below) – and that is Comcast, the largest cable company in America.
That peaked my curiosity up – so I figure why not call? Here’s what happened:
- Call #1: I asked the representative about the status of the ACC Network. I had then had to mention the network name five times – and spelling it out at least four. The presentative still didn’t understand what I was saying – so I hung up.
- Call #2: The representative hung up – but called me back as I was already on call #3.
- Call #3: I asked the representative about the status of the ACC Network – and if Comcast was offering the network in August 2019. The representative told me that Comcast already offered the ACC network as a streaming option – I told her that this is the ACC Network Extra offered through ESPN3.com. She agreed with my conclusion – and mentioned that she would follow up with her management (I told her I would exit Comcast and pay the the 11 month early termination fee if I did not get the ACC Network – and specifically, the linear channel). She followed up and stated that Comcast and the ACC are still in negotiations.
I had a very real conversation with @ComcastCares – see the DM below:
So there you have it – there were my attempts to get information out of Comcast.
@TalkinACCSports also made a call to Comcast speaking as a “new” customer for the state of Georgia – pricing out cable options with the ACC Network as a priority. According to him, the finally said it would be on one of their tiers.
Take it for what’s it worth… Nothing is official, until it’s publicly released as a done deal.
