Dish Network reportedly has a handshake deal to carry the ACC Network's telecast of Thursday's Clemson game.

The Dish Network satellite service tweeted Thursday night that it reached an "agreement in principle" with ESPN to carry the ESPN-owned ACC Network in time for the ACC Network telecast of Thursday night's Georgia Tech-Clemson game.

Dish subscribers with America's Top 120+ or above, or with the Regional Action Pack, or with the Multi-Sport Pack can watch the game on Dish Ch. 402.

The Dish announcement means both of the nation's top two satellite companies now have the ACC Network. DirecTV had been carrying the new channel since its Aug. 22 launch.

The ACC Network announced that it also struck a deal Thursday to be carried by the Sling streaming service.
