Dish Network better pick it up after the debacle in the CBS contract negotiation.

Just spoke with Dish and she had no idea what I was talking about. The SEC Network will be one new channel, correct? And will all our games be broadcast from that ch or will ESPN, etc still carry them?

Thanks....need to know what to do before Aug gets here.

Any chance they will simulcast usc games on SEC network and on espn3?

Re: SEC Network
 
If they only broadcast the games on the SEC Network, and most major TV providers dont carry it, the only thing they will have accomplished is a lot of angry fans. I would think they know that...

Re: SEC Network
 
I read that all sec network games will be on espn3

Re: SEC Network
 
I'm guessing that since there are NFL, MLB, Big10, and Pac12 networks and their games are also on other networks then the SEC would too. Plus all of those are carried by Time-Warner so I would expect them to carry SEC. I just don't care to have an increase in my cable bill to watch future Carolina games.

Re: SEC Network
 
I agree. Unless the major carriers like dish, direct and major cable companies carry the station, how is that going to benefit the fans? And isn't ESPN3 on the Internet only? Some of the older fans just don't have the knowledge or means to watch that.

It is on the internet, and only certain internet providers carry it. I sure hope dish picks it up the network.

Re: SEC Network
 
I am sure the major cable companies are in negotiations with ESPN.

Re: SEC Network
 
SEC games will still be on CBS and ESPN. The games that normally come on Saturday at noon and the games on Fox Sport South and Sport South will be on the SEC Network. My understanding is there are no more PPV games. All football games will be televised.

yazoo 01-13-2014 08:44 AM

Re: SEC Network
 
The SEC Network is broadcasting the Tier 3 games for all SEC schools, which includes some football and a lot of baseball, BB, and other sports. There is one Tier 3 game each week in football, plus highlighted games to attract demand in the southeast for the network. The network is a joint enterprise between the SEC and ESPN, and probably one large cable provider. The negotiations will likely extend past our opening game with Texas A&M for most of the cable/satellite companies. Therefore, it is really very nip and tuck whether we will be able to see our game on our normal cable or satellite networks. That's just way the game is played.

ESPN does not want a repeat of the Longhorn Network where it had a lot of trouble moving the network to local cable providers.

In all seriousness...we probably won't know which additional carriers pick it up until sometime in August. That's how things go, they wait till the last minute as a negotiating tactic.
