The ACC Digital Network Brings More Unique Access to Fans

Wednesday January 29, 2014



Charlotte, NC – The ACC Digital Network brought to you by Ruby Tuesday, has taken its coverage of ACC Men’s Basketball to an entirely new level of access this season.   The newest ACCDN feature series, Inside, is gaining the attention of fans, as a camera crew takes them behind the scenes into each of the ACC’s 15 member schools and reveals coach and player preparation leading up to tipoff, including head coaches mic’d up in practice, coaches meetings, team dinners and even a few trick shots by the players.

"We're proud to continue to work closely with the member institutions to bring ACC fans behind the scenes and inside the 15 programs that make up ACC Men's Basketball,” said Matt Carstens VP & GM of the ACCDN.  “This new series takes the fans not only on campus, but inside the day-to-day lives of our great players and coaches during the season.  Each campus visit and the resulting content unveils the passion and pride of the ACC programs and their student athletes."

This Wednesday night, the ACCDN adds in-depth coverage of men’s basketball games on theACC.com through the interactive ACCDN #ISOCAM and the ACC Postgame Live show.  As part of the ACC Network’s live broadcast and streaming of the Florida State vs NC State basketball telecast on theACC.com, fans will have the option to view a camera dedicated to one particular player, coach or other element of the game as directed by @theACCDN followers.   Beginning at 9pm ET, fans can log onto theACC.com for a unique view of the game beginning with the camera isolated on NC State’s TJ Warren.   Fans are encouraged to watch, and provide any feedback, comments or camera direction by tweeting @theACCDN and using the hashtag #ISOCAM.

Then, immediately following the game, fans can then continue the experience by tabbing over to the ACC Postgame Live video show. The half hour live streamed show, hosted by the ACC Digital Network’s Jeff Fischel and former Georgia Tech great Drew Barry, will entertain fans with highlights, in-depth analysis of the nights games, and trending topics.

"The online sports fan wants two things - great content, and a voice.  Our team is embracing both in a variety of ways that are exclusive, compelling and truly engaging" said Andy Siegel, Executive Producer for the ACCDN.
