It's my opinion that these "delays" and the alleged anxiety of fans is part of the plan.

People may not like Mike Slive and they may disagree with some of his decisions. One thing they can't discount or argue against is he's a pretty smart fella.

I've suspected we'd see a lot of announcements in July. I've also suspected we'll see these announcements coincide with SEC Media days. What better venue to announce additions like DTV, Comcast, etc.?

Hope you are correct Terry. I don't want to switch from DTV, but I will if they don't get the network.

I am in the same boat, but even if comcast just got the network, I would rather switch to Dish or AT&T Uverse before I ever go back to that crap they call Comcast. I just hope DTV gets it. Been a customer for many many years.

With all the big wigs, AT&T, Dish and now Comcast in the mix, DirecTV has no option right now but to get the channel. Or they will lose a lot of customers. This is southern football here, are they insane?

No, how about you post a link? SECN is supposed to get to second pick after CBS every week. You'd think they'd get a good game just about every week.

"Texas A&M at USC" "Temple at Vanderbilt" on Thursday and Saturday "UT Martin at Kentucky" That is all I see right now, but that is only the first week. Maybe they pick up more games that saturday, but they aren't done adding games. http://secsports.go.com/

That is really the only somewhat watchable game. Auburn/Ark won't be close. The others are awful.

It sounds like the SEC network will mostly have the games like Furman, Troy, South Alabama, etc.

Didn't you read the article above. Comcast and the SEC have agreed in principle. They are just working out minor details. Besides. Everyone in the southeast is going to be carrying this channel. Everyone is worrying for nothing.

Yikes, sure you didn't want to schedule someone a little easier for the first game? Not being sarcastic either.

A bit of confusion here...I'm talking about the Comcast/TWC merger.

Yes...the Comcast/SECN deal is pretty much done.

But earlier you said Comcast owns TWC and that's not true...therefore your next statement concerning who Comcast is "in bed with" and whether they also get the SECN is moot right now.

Default Re: SEC Network getting nervous

http://forums.timewarnercable.com/t5...p/27570/page/3

a Moderator from TWC posted this on their forum today, regarding the SECNetwork:

"The SEC Network is launching in August 2014. We are in discussions with SEC Network, but we don’t have an agreement at this time. Keep watching our website for more information. -Stephanie"

So what this means:
TWC is still trying to figure out the deal with the SECNetwork and Comcast, they don't want to do a deal with the SECNetwork that will jeopardize the Comcast purchase.
They still may not have a deal done by the time our 1st game is played, or at all.
They are stalling for time with their customers, but their customers know it takes several weeks to switch providers. So unless they announce soon, they'll probably lose 10's of thousands of customers in the next month.
