About 3 months ago we took a look at the the success ACC Digital Network and it’s growth since its beginning in the fall of 2011. Recently it reached a milestone. It became the first major conference to have their Digital Network have over 5 Million views. It leads all major conferences in number of views.
ACC Digital Network – 5,012,301 views
SEC Digital Network – 4,324,381 views
Big 10 Network – 4,167,846 views
Big 12 Digital Network – 787,349 views
Pac 12 Network – 511,747 views
That’s nearly 800,000 views in nearly 3 months, and it was during a time where the basketball season was coming to an end, and football season hasn’t yet started. It’s a nice achievement for the ACC Digital Network.
Another announcement was made to day, that’s interesting. @iLLDuce is someone on twitter that sent me a link about CNY Central landing the local TV rights for Syracuse University sports. I’ve had several conversations with @iLLDuce on the state of the ACC and ACC Network. One thing that struck us both is the length of the deal. It’s for 3 years. Now I’m no television expert, but that does seem awfully short for a TV rights deal. We are usually thinking in terms of 10-12 years with those, unless… TV rights have to be available for an ACC Network in 2-3 years? Just thinking out loud…could be nothing or could be a significant clue to the timing of an ACC Network.
