I have it, and I keep requesting they get it. Not much else we can do really. Also heard Direct TV is going to be bought by another provider.

Direct kept giving me the same runaround so I dumped them for Uverse.

If direct does not get it together, I too will change

I contacted my cable provider; they would like to be contacted by the SEC network - asked me if I had any affiliation.
Does anybody know - I'm just starting to search now- a programing manager or some such title and I'll try to hook them up.

AT&T Universe has made bid to buy out Direct.They already have deal w/sec tv. Hope deal goes thru quickly or at least be4 season starts. contract default is expensive plus you are responsiable 4 cost of returning equipment..

Got Charter Communications here in the upstate and I swear I will drop them like a bad habit if they don't get on the ball and pick up the SEC network. This is one thing I will be very serious about.

Well I read At&t now owns Directtv. I have Dish Network and they know where their bread is buttered and that is in the South. They were the first network to make sure that the new network would be included. Now I don't trust the corporations and they will fee the cost out of me somewhere I already know just a smart business decision by them to at least look like they cared. lol

There was a thread a couple of weeks ago on this and I emailed Directv and got this response:

"Subject
SEC Network
Administrator
We strongly believe every SEC fan should have access to the SEC Network on DIRECTV and customers can rest assured that is our goal as we continue our discussions with the owners of the channel. Contract talks happen on a different timetable with each TV provider, so unlike our competitor, we have really just begun our discussions and hope to have an update on status as we move closer to the network's launch in August.

For more information please visit directvpromise.com."

It sounds pretty promising they will reach a deal in time for footbally season.

TWC seems to be the biggest hold out, does anyone have info on the status of negotiation between them and ESPN ?

I will be very surprised if they do not get it. They have a large presence in North and South Carolina. Pretty sure they are based in charlotte (Time Warner Cable Arena). Interestingly enough, SECN studios will be in charlotte...

Still no word on Direct TV picking up the SEC Network or ESPN3 online. Which is strange considering it was bought out by AT&T and AT&T have both of these.

I imagine this is because the deal with AT&T will take at least a year to complete... maybe longer than that.

Well I sure hope at least the SEC Network is picked up, or I am looking else where.
