ACCN

The ACC Network can now be seen on the AT&T Now streaming service.

The ACC Network has struck a deal that puts it on two more TV providers, according to a network spokesperson Thursday.

The ESPN-owned TV channel has reached an agreement in principle with AT&T to be carried on AT&T Now, the national streaming service that used to be called DirecTV Now.

The ACC Network, which debuted last month, had already struck a deal with AT&T last spring to be carried by the AT&T-owned DirecTV satellite company. The new deal means AT&T Now customers in Virginia and around the country can watch the ACC Network as well. The AT&T Now service does not require a DirecTV satellite dish.

The new agreement also enables the ACC Network to be carried by AT&T U-Verse, a fiber-optic cable TV service that is not available in Virginia.

The addition of the ACC Network on AT&T Now and AT&T U-Verse was no doubt a part of the overall Disney-AT&T deal that was reportedly struck last week to keep Disney-owned TV channels such as ABC and ESPN on DirecTV, AT&T Now and AT&T U-Verse.
