The ACC Network is ESPN’s newest sports network that currently is only available when ACC games are being played. ESPN does plan to launch a 24/7 ACC Network in 2018, but for now you just get access to the ACC Network when the games are being played.

The good news is you don’t need to pay for cable TV to watch the ACC Network, and many cord cutters already have access to the network.

Here is a quick guide on how you can watch the ACC Network.

FREE With an Antenna

Now if you are lucky and live within range of 1 of 117 local channels that air the ACC Network for free over the air then you can watch it 100% free. You can find the full list of ACC Network affiliates HERE.

Game selection will vary depending on where you live, but you also have ways to stream the ACC Network online.

How to Watch the ACC Network FREE Online

The good news is if you subscribe to a live TV streaming service that carries ESPN, such as PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and DIRECTV NOW, you will also have the ACC Network. The only catch is you won’t find it in your app unless you have Sling TV.

Sling TV is the only live TV streaming service to carry the ACC Network in its app. All other services offer it inside the WatchESPN app.

The best part about streaming the ACC Network is you can get access to all ACC Network games. No need to hope it will be showing the game you want for free over the air.
