ACC working on its own Channel, ND expected to add $1M annually


The ACC expects Notre Dame's full membership in all sports but football and hockey -- with five guaranteed football games per year -- to earn each school more than $1 million per year in media rights revenue, according to two league sources. This will bump the ACC's per-school annual television revenue into the $18-plus-million range. In 2012, the ACC renegotiated a deal with ESPN for $3.6 billion over 15 years (or $17.1 million per school on average) for a 14-team football league. Notre Dame's football television deal with NBC is worth a reported $15 million per year and runs until 2015. Note that the ACC actually takes one full team share out of these figures, which isnt included above, and the deal with ESPN is backweighted in the later years.
