I couldn't wait for Cox's negotiations with ESPN to pan out in time for me to watch the game between GT and Clemson tonight. So, I started a free one week trial with Hulu TV on Tuesday. It appears to work fine though the frame rate (watching US Open tennis on ESPN) was a little bit slow and the match was slightly choppy over the wifi. Youtube TV also offers a free trial. So, maybe I'll go there next week.
Some are asking the Cox moderators here what their options are for watching ACC games this weekend. Going to another provider is your only solution, and you shouldn't wait for a moderator to tell you that, because they never will. Explore other options NOW if you haven't started already, because I really don't expect Cox to have the ACC Network by this weekend, especially with other cable providers (Comcast,Dish) holding out as well.
In fairness to Cox, they're trying to keep their prices down and negotiating a lower price is in their and their customers' long term best interest, but that's not going to help us ACC fans right now. And mods, please don't reply with the cut and pasted response of "we're actively negotiating with ESPN to the the ACC Network".
