So much great TV to watch — ever wonder how Comcast brings it to you?

Every month, Comcast pays programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others for the ability to bring their programming to you. That’s right, Comcast pays the programmers – not the other way around. When contracts near an end, new channels are created, or new contracts are offered, Comcast evaluates the terms to ensure we're delivering our customers the best entertainment at the best value. Sometimes the programmers demand excessively high fees, and Comcast is not able to carry the channel.

What’s happening with ACC Network?

For years, Atlantic Coast Conference sports aired on ESPN and other networks at no additional cost to customers. Now, ESPN has launched the ACC Network, a new TV network that will carry some of the ACC games. Unfortunately, they are demanding a large fee to carry it. This would mean that all customers, even those who do not watch ACC sports, would need to pay more.

Many ACC games are still available on broadcast and cable channels without the new network. However, in support of our customers, Comcast will not carry the ACC Network until we reach an agreement at a fair and reasonable cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do network fees work?
We pay networks, local TV station owners and others for the ability to deliver their programming to you. The fees vary based on factors such as the type of content, the popularity of the network, and the demand for its content, among others.
Could my bill be affected by programming fee increases demanded by channel owners?
Yes. Programming is the number one cost for all video providers, not just Comcast. In fact, since 2006, our overall programming costs have more than doubled. We work hard to limit the impact of this on our customers’ bills and are committed to providing the best programming at the best possible value.
Why shouldn’t I just switch to another provider so I can watch my games?
Losing or not having new channels is a possibility with any TV provider. All television providers must evaluate contracts from time to time. We are committed to providing you with the best entertainment at the best value.
Are there other ways customers can watch ACC games?
Absolutely. Many ACC games and other college sports programming also are available on other networks, including ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, Fox, and FS1. Simply press the C button on your Xfinity Voice Remote to see all of the games, stats and more.
