The agreement, which will put up to 120 live events on the network annually, includes ACC football, men's and women's basketball, baseball, soccer and lacrosse. The rights were obtained as part of the new ACC Network sublicensed regional package.
CSN Mid-Atlantic will air up to 14 football games, beginning with the Sept. 3 matchup between James Madison and North Carolina, and up to 59 basketball games this winter.
"Our longstanding relationship with the ACC, its member schools and their many fans throughout the region make our network an ideal partner for the conference and a great home for their exciting product," said Comcast SportsNet SVP/GM Rebecca Schulte.
CSN Mid-Atlantic serves the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. area.
