VUit, (pronounced “view it”), a free, ad-supported national streaming service aiming to be the “Netflix of Live, Local, and Free,” announced today a partnership with the ACC Digital Network and Raycom Sports to create ACCDN Confidential, a new 24/7 channel featuring highlights and athlete spotlights from the Atlantic Coast Conference. ACCDN Confidential will shine the spotlight on one of college sports most dominant conferences through an array of highlight driven-programming featuring unforgettable moments and legendary players. The channel will launch on April 15th with a special event series tied to the upcoming NFL Draft starring the ACC stars destined to make their mark in the League.
ACCDN Confidential is designed to bring sports fans across the nation a chance to experience the excitement of ACC sports around the clock through highlights and player spotlights. Timed to the NFL Draft, the channel will launch a wide-range of player-specific “best of 2020” highlight reels, offering viewers access to the explosive plays that made the ACC’s top talent among the most coveted players by NFL teams. Among the players featured are: Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Amari Rodgers and Travis Etienne, North Carolina’s Javonte Williams, Dazz Newsome, Dyami Brown and Michael Carter, Miami’s Brevin Jordan, Virginia Tech’s Khalil Herbert, Louisville’s Javian Hawkins, Dez Fitzpatrick and Tutu Atwell, Notre Dame’s Ian Book, Wake Forest’s Sage Surratt, and Florida State’s Tamorrion Terry. Following the NFL Draft programming event, ACCDN Confidential will offer basketball programming that wraps up the 2020-21 season, and a look ahead to the 2021 NBA Draft in late June and the ACC players to watch. Later in the year, the channel will turn its attention back to the gridiron with team previews featured in the 2021 football season.
Jack Perry, CEO and Founder of Syncbak said, “We know there is a large appetite for sports on VUit, and being able to work with Raycom to create ACCDN Confidential helps us fulfill that. The new channel also ties to our overall mission of providing a national audience access to local news, sports and culture that has great appeal. In this case we are super-serving access to a sports conference that has a national following.”
