How confusing is it in this day and age to watch a team on the dreaded RSNs?
I was in line at Target on Saturday, decked out in Tar Heel gear as I was going to watch the football game. A gentleman approached me asking if I had watched the College of Charleston game, and then how was I able to watch it? This gentleman was definitely older than me, and when I tried to explain it was on the local RSN he nodded and said “which one is that? Oh yeah, I don’t get that cause I have (x) streaming.”
The sooner the ACC is done with this contract that puts some of their events on these regional cable networks, the better.
Luckily for all of us, this is only going to happen one more time for Carolina Basketball this season — January 17th against Boston College. If you had trouble watching on Friday night, go ahead and research now how to get access to an RSN by then!
Tonight, the game is back on the ACC Network, which thanks to the recent deal with Comcast everyone should at least have access to now. With that in mind, here’s all the details you need to watch the Tar Heels go up against the Bulldogs tonight.
