August 16--  Georgia Tech Athletic Director Todd Stansbury has a message for Yellow Jacket fans.

Jacket Fans,

As many of you know, the ACC Network officially launches in less than one week – Thursday, Aug. 22.

The launch of the ACC Network is a momentous occasion in the long and storied history of our conference. And, of course, Georgia Tech has the honor of being a part of the very first football game to ever be televised on the ACC Network, when our Yellow Jackets face longtime rival and defending national champion Clemson on ACCN on Thursday, Aug. 29.

In addition to the highly anticipated football opener versus Clemson, Georgia Tech will be featured prominently throughout the first weeks of ACCN programming. Football head coach Geoff Collins will be on the network’s official launch show on Aug. 22 and the very first episode of ACCN’s morning show, Packer and Durham (co-hosted by GT Sports Hall of Famer Wes Durham), on Aug. 26. An all-access show chronicling the early days of Georgia Tech football’s 2019 fall camp will air exclusively on ACCN in the days leading up to the opener against Clemson. And not only will the Yellow Jackets’ football season opener versus Clemson be televised exclusively on the ACC Network, but the Sept. 7 home opener against South Florida will also be shown exclusively on ACCN.

However, to see ANY ACC Network programming, your cable/satellite/digital provider MUST carry ACCN. If your provider does not carry the network, you cannot watch ACCN programming, either on your TV or online via WatchESPN or the ESPN app.

Many providers are already committed to carrying ACCN, including DIRECTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue, YouTubeTV and Charter/Spectrum (for a full list of providers in your area, visit

However, there are still providers that haven’t committed to carrying the network yet, including Comcast/Xfinity, Dish Network and AT&T U-Verse.

If your provider is not yet committed to carrying the ACC Network, I encourage you to:

  1. Call, email and/or reach out to them via social media and demand ACCN right away.
  2. Consider switching to a provider that is already committed to carrying ACCN. DIRECTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue and YouTubeTV are all available NATIONALLY – anyone in any area of the United States has these four options to consider if your current local cable/digital provider is not committed to carrying ACCN.

Georgia Tech, the ACC and ESPN remain confident that the success of the ACC Network will eventually ensure its availability on all providers. But we need your help in making your voice heard to providers that are not already committed to carrying ACCN. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to watch all of the great Georgia Tech programming that will be available from the moment the ACC Network launches on Thursday, Aug. 22.

Thank you and Go Jackets!
