There is..


or at least was an advantage to having ESPN as a partner. Before you start calling others non-informed you would be wise to check your own understanding. Under the old model it was absolutely a check for services model where the check was carriage fees and subscribers. With unbundling and increased streaming the model is in transition. The next fault line for the ACC Network is the looming Comcast renewal. IF the renewal proceeds with no major hiccups then the ACC network is probably on solid ground, even if less than previously projected revenue based on negotiated carriage fees. However, if Comcast declines or ACC network is not a full member of the Disney suite of channels things get decidedly more dicey and all those things you refer to branding, etc. become questionable as well. Hard to say what will happen but, there is no doubt the Disney/Comcast negotiations will be a big barometer and tell for where things move going forward.
