Re: response from charter about sec network
yep, this will entail renegotiating contracts between the content provider (ESPN) and the individual TV systems (Cable and Sat providers)
from what I have seen at this point, dont expect the SEC network to be carried on the same "Basic" tier that normal ESPN and ESPN2 are on for most carriers. This means that if your provider allows you access to the basic tiers without having to have any equipment (cable boxes) then you will likely have to pick up and rent a box from the provider in order to receive the SEC network.
To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.
