Default AT&T buys Direct TV, impact on SEC network

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/...rectv/9247795/

It will be long after the SEC network launches that this deal is finalized, and until then these are two independent companies. But does it say anything about a DirectTV move to get the SECN?

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...or-sec-network

I know the bleacher report is not known for being a great newsource but this is a pretty good article. Some interesting points:

1. The Big10 network was available to a little over 16 million homes at launch. The SEC Network is already available to 19-20 million, and the carriers are still signing up.

2. The month between SEC Media days and the college football kickoff is crunch time for your provider if they aren't carrying the SEC Network. If they don't have it by then they will not be a part of ESPN's major push on all fronts to get people signed up. And when ESPN has an agenda, it gets noticed...
