Default Explain the SEC Network to me, please.

OK, the SEC Network will be a separate channel, like the B1G Network, right? How are they getting intra-conference games, when ESPN signed a 15 year deal with the SEC to carry all the intra-conference games, except the ones that CBS got?
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.

ESPN is partners with the SEC and is running the SECN. So, ESPN can put a SEC game on it just like ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc. CBS gets first pick, but no longer has the exclusive right to their time window. Third tier games that were owned by the schools are now owned by ESPN to be broadcast.

as far as the rest, I don't know.

What I'm confused about is are we people going to have to pay extra to get the channel or will it be with most cable and satellite providers?

I heard it will cost extra, but I really don't know. The only provider that has it now is DISH and there still isn't even a lot of information about that.

Directv will get it and you will have to pay extra for it.

Just let them play their contract negotiations game for the few months while we all save up to afford it.

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

The SEC is trying to get it to not cost extra on your cable bill as a premium channel while maximizing the amount of money they get for it. They will get more ad revenue with it being available in more homes. I expect the negotiations to come down to the wire on some of the outlets.

What would be considered "third tier games"? Would that be along the lines of like SC-ECU or SC-CCU?

Also- will the syndicated SEC TV channel still run?

The Big 10 network is free with my package on Directv so hopefully the SEC network will be too.

I think there is not such thing as third tier games anymore, but those were the bottom of the barrel ones that some schools used for PPV only, like UF-Furman.

AT&T U-Verse was the first to announce that they would carry the channel and that was done when the channel was announced. Not sure what package would be required to get it. Dish Network has renewed it's contract with Disney/ABC/ESPN and will carry the channel at launch time. (ESPNU and ESPNEWS was added in HD thankfully.) It will be part of the Amercica's Top 120 package.These are the only two national carriers that have announced contracts. From my understanding, those carriers that offer the SEC Network and WatchESPN will also have it streaming.

During football season, one of the SEC games conference wide is tier 3. Those are the games we usually have to buy on ppv to watch on tv. Now, if we have SEC Network, those games will be on it. We also can watch Alabama play Troy if we want.

There will be a ton of baseball and bb games on tier 3. Right now, you can watch the tier three games on the CBS stream. Those will be carried by the SEC network.

I don't know what the syndicated SEC TV channel is as I have never heard of it until your post.

It used to be called SEC Network. It wasn't its own channel- only showed up when there was a game. Mississippi St. And Arkansas game were on that this past year. Sorry if it's not a good explanation!

What channel? ESPN, Fox Sports South? If so, those are just part of the ESPN SEC contract games I expect.

SEC Network is for the remaining trash game in football, and lots of the other non revenue sports, many more hoops games, and baseball. IMO, ESPN is going to make a ton of money with this Network. The baseball alone is worth the price.

Unlike the Big10 network and others, the SEC version is pretty much all profit for the SEC. We don't have to invest in the infrastructure and advertising like others did. This really has nothing to do with your getting it, just saying that as far as the money goes it will be a bigger share for us with less liability.

I think he's referring to what many of us still call the "JP/Raycom Game of the Week" that is usually on one of your local channels at 12:21 pm Saturday.
