ACC Digital will provide an extensive, multiplatform coverage plan for the 2015 New York Life ACC Tournament during March 10-14. The expanded coverage will be available online through TheACC.com and the ACC Digital Network (ACCDN), as well as through mobile devices.
The 2015 New York Life ACC Tournament will be online for free, with the ACC Network syndicated telecasts streamed live on TheACC.com and on the ACC Sports Mobile App. Postgame press conferences will also be streamed live on the ACCDN, and available for download on Livestream.
The ACCDN will have extensive coverage of every game from the tournament. Hosts Jeff Fischel and Courtney Cox will be joined by former ACC greats Jason Capel from North Carolina and Drew Barry from Georgia Tech. Coverage will include Game Previews, Official Highlights, Must See Moments and Performances, Breakdown and Analysis, Postgame Interviews and #ACCStar. All ACCDN videos are viewable on theACC.com, the ACC mobile and tablet app, as well as various streaming and connected mobile and TV devices, or fans can subscribe to www.youtube.com/accdn.
A pair of free mobile Apps, the ACC Sports Mobile App and the ACC Gameday App, will give access to content from the ACCDN. Both can be found as a free download in both the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores. The ACC Sports Mobile App will provide live game streams and real-time scores, stats, news and highlights.
The ACC Gameday App is an in-depth event resource for fans in town for the tournament, including a fan guide with tournament and FanFest activity times and locations, and information on the ACC Legends Class of 2015. It also has need-to-know information about the Greensboro Coliseum and the Greensboro Area including maps and parking, weather alerts, and real-time social streams from Instagram and Twitter. It includes an ACC Experience App section, where fans may view and bid on unique experiences available at the tournament.
TheACC.com will host the ACC Social Hub within its tournament coverage, updated with real-time relevant content featuring the tournament and schools competing. The Social Hub will aggregate social media content from Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Facebook, giving fans access to all the sights, sounds and buzz during the tournament. Fans will be able to customize their experience sorting content by school, or get all content associated with the tournament. A social polling feature will allow fans to vote on who they think will win. During tournament play, Social Hub will feature a live video window to let fans watch the games while keeping up with social chatter all in one site.
