ACC and Pac 12 discuss partnership with ESPN TV

Written by admin

Sources say ACC and Pac-12 officials are discussing a broadcast partnership with ESPN that will bring two Power 5 leagues from opposite coasts together for a mutually beneficial relationship. sports illustrations.

The proposal, still in its infancy, is largely tied to ESPN’s ACC network. Under the plan, the ACC network, or a rebranded bi-league entity, would have exclusive rights to broadcast Pac-12 games to West Coast households through cable providers ESPN. The agreement is not a merger or consolidation of the leagues, but instead is based on a media rights agreement with the world leader in sports – an attempt to respond to the loss of USC and UCLA’s Pac-12s to the Big Ten.

While a joint move may include important non-conference matches from the west and east coasts – think Clemson-Washington or Miami-Oregon – the main reason for the partnership is television ownership. This will replace the failed Pac-12 network with a reliable provider that can reach millions of homes in the west.
