    This network isn’t available for me on Dish Anywhere. Has anyone heard of whether or not it will be added? Does anyone else see it in Dish Anywhere?

    Wait up until the start of the next game. I'm sure it'll be available by then. :D

    Safe to assume dish’s target is the Carolinas and Florida, and not the Midwest. Kind of Bullsh!t they bend the second Clemson is about to play, but don’t give a sh*t about baseball fans.

    College football is one of their biggest draws so they had to make sure they didn't lose subs over this.

    With Pro Football dead to me, getting my Georgia Bulldogs (and the rest of college football) is a must. On Saturdays my multiview boxes and Game Finder are going constantly. I feel a little let down if I don't crash the Multiview at least once.

    Yeah hopefully the CBS dispute is resolved soon with meredith. I feel like it will really hurt Dish in their market with SEC fans as that's where the game of the week is. That's the most important dispute for me personally at the moment. I did watch nearly every Braves game though and miss them.

    The only time I didn't live in the Atlanta area was '80-'82 when I moved to Austin, TX. Luckily I got a job with the local cable company (owned by Lady Bird Johnson) and when they upgraded to 23 channels (with a slider tuner that looked like an old fashion telephone directory with a long wire that would reach the couch) there was WTBS, The Superstation!. All of a sudden, I am living a thousand miles from home and seeing every single Braves game!

    While you can't watch ACCN on the ESPN app yet, football games in general look better on the app than they do on the DISH channels. Along with compression issues DISH signals are 1080i while the app is 1080p. It makes a difference...

    The ESPN family of networks are 720p. You're getting 720p on the ESPN app as well.

    But my AppleTV upscales it to 2160 and it looks superb.

    Yeah, because of bitrate, not resolution.

    I wonder why ACCN, which debuted on Dish at channel 402, is now also on 148. Does that change what levels of programming you need in order to get it?

    The ACC Network launched on both channels 148 and 402. At this time, this does not change the requirement of needing to be subscribed to the America's Top 120+ or higher, the Multi-Sport Pack or Regional Action Pack. -Jasmine D.

    One more question for you: Has Dish reached a deal that allows customers to access ACC Network Extra games on ESPN3? Every time I try to watch a game there, I got a lock icon and it doesn't let me do so.

    Bumping, hoping Dish will provide an answer to my last question. A UNC non-revenue sports game that I would have been able to watch on ESPN3 last year is not accessible to me now because it's now on ACC Network Extra.

    Ask ESPN. They control the content. And by creating a new network with more exclusivity controls, it's gotten tighter.

    dish any news on ACCN & ACCNX access for Dish subscribers in the ESPN App? I noticed that Longhorn Network isn’t working for me either.
