ACC TV Deal Almost Complete: $155 Million per Year

Category: College Sports Television News, Featured News

It’s being reported that the ACC and ESPN are on the verge of a TV deal that will pay them $1.86 billion over 12 years, an average of $155 million per year. That’s a huge increase over the current $67 million per year the conference makes. This boost will put the ACC third behind the Big Ten ($242 million per year), and the SEC ($205 million) and ahead of the Big 12 ($78 million), Pac-10 ($58 million) and Big East ($33 million).

Both the Big 12 and the Pac-10 will soon be negotiating for a new TV deal and could be affected by the ESPN partnership with the ACC. Both conference have discussed the idea of a TV partnership or joint TC network. It would seem that in the wake of the ACC/ESPN deal, such a joint effort might maximize the most profits.

  • I highly doubt the Big XII, Pac-10, or Big East will get more money than the ACC minus a joint effort as has been discussed. The Big XII might ultimately come close but it will fall short of the ACC haul.

  • Raycom and other stations will have to purchase games from ESPN in this deal. Raycom was in control of it previously. The Raycom games will be called the ACC Network. The ESPN games, I think, will no longer be blacked out in ACC markets. CBS and FSN, if they want, can still purchase games from ESPN. This is very similar to what ESPN did with SEC events, but they sold off the rights to those games. I am not sure if ESPN will do the same with the ACC package.

  • The Big XII, Pac-10, and Big East will all benefit from this. If the ACC can get that kind of money out of ESPN, those conferences could get even more. The ACC is third for now, but not for long.
