This year we played Miss State and Arkansas which were on the SEC TV channel.

Default Re: Explain the SEC Network to me, please.

Hah just checked their site and as stated it's not yet available through DirecTv but they asked what my favorite team and sport was (no choice for "all" or even baseball, just football, mbb & wbb) and I got this "personalized" letter


Dear Cliff,

On behalf of my entire staff, I'd like to thank you for your commitment to the SEC Network. You've made a great choice, because it's a wonderful time to be a Gamecock! Our football team finished the season ranked fourth in the nation and half of our athletic teams are ranked in the national Top 25.

We can't rest on your commitment alone, however. By encouraging your friends to also sign up for the SEC Network, we can show TV providers how strong our demand is to watch the Gamecocks play. With more than 1,000 exclusive live events, 45 football games, 160 basketball games, 75 baseball games, 50 softball games and 24/7 coverage of all SEC sports, the SEC Network is a must for SEC fans like you and me.

With an 18-game home winning streak our fans have made Williams-Brice Stadium the toughest place to play in college football for opposing teams. We want you to be cheering the Gamecocks in our stadium. However, if you can't get to Williams-Brice on game day, the next best thing is the SEC Network.

I hope that you will let everyone know that the SEC Network is a must-have for Gamecock fans and friends. So, call DIRECTV at 1-800-DIRECTV to demand the SEC Network and let your friends know to do the same.

Go Gamecocks!



Steve Spurrier
Head Football Coach, University of South Carolina

But, lo and behold, the week 1 double-header(aTm @ USC is the first game) is on the SEC Network, and I've been getting e-mails from the SEC Network telling me that DirecTV doesn't have it, which is my provider.
Exactly who does have this? And is there a chance that DirecTV will end up not carrying it? Can they risk losing half of the Southeastern subscribers. I know I would pay the fee and go back to Dish Network, if I had to.

thanks.
DirecTV is holding out, along with some others. Chances are they'll all carry it in time for the launch in August, but certainly no guarantees. Charter, Time Warner, Comcast and some others have yet to sign-on as well.

DISH is better IMHO, unless you are an NFL season ticket holder on DirecTV.

It's all about inventory. Each school is now required to provide a certain amount of inventory to be broadcast on the new network. This includes all lesser sports plus some editorial shows.

The football inventory will be taken from archived games (there is some dispute as to whether all games will be taken down from YouTube, or not), and future games which will be determined by ESPN. (Because they will continue to broadcast their ESPN Game of the Week on the main four letter channel. )

You'll also still have CBS getting first pick.

Bottom line is that EVERYTHING not broadcast on the main network and cable channels, will now go on the SEC Network. A ton more basketball games and baseball games, softball, golf, swimming, gymnastics, everything.

A few more dominoes will fall soon I think. There is no way they will be the only ones without it, the negotiations are ongoing and it wouldn't surprise me to see some go into early Summer without being on board yet.

It is highly unlikely that the major tv networks will hold out since one of them has already made a move.

Looking like TN vs. Utah St is going to be moved to Sunday night opening weekend and will be on the SECNetwork as well.

When I move into my new house in late May I am going to have to make a decision of what provider to go with. Looks like U-Verse has a leg up as of now.

Just saw this on Direct TV's site.

Quote:
Will DIRECTV carry the SEC Network?

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 competitors, 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.

Default Re: Explain the SEC Network to me, please.

Not terribly concerned - each side will proclaim how much they want to provide you the viewers with the quality programming you've come to expect, but the other party is being greedy and looking to take more of your hard earned cash and keeping us from satisfying your viewing needs.

Then a couple days before launch they'll come to an agreement with the photo op handshake with clenched teeth

It might be a moot point come August...
