Default SEC Network Poised For Blockbuster Launch

http://msn.foxsports.com/college-foo...-launch-070914

Really good piece. I think these numbers seem overstated a bit for the first few years, but long term, this will he huge for us. What kind of improvements/debt service can we handle each year with an additional 15-20 million per year. Take a look.



"Several years ago the SEC made the decision not to launch its own network because league officials were concerned that a protracted hold-out from cable and satellite companies would anger SEC fans. That's why the league decided to partner with ESPN and not follow the Big Ten's lead and create its own network. All of that changed when Texas A&M decided to jump on board with the SEC. Missouri soon followed. By adding just two teams the SEC added 50% more cable and satellite subscribers to its regional footprint, making it clear that the league's new television strategy would include a network."

I don't really mind the trough. Imagine how long the lunes will be with only half the amount being able to pee at one time.

There are some that just can't grasp how much money this is going to be (aka Skeeter) but think of it this way: we already make more than Cl3m5on from tv revenue and we're about to surpass the amount needed to build their indoor practice field, PER YEAR. Yes, per year.

I thought about moving to dish, since it's cheaper and would have it, but after seeing the reviews of dish, no way I'm doing that.

Charter is dragging their feet with this. It's ridiculous but we don't have many options. Just Dish and U Verse pretty much and I can't even get U Verse in my area.

Directtv will have it. Of course I'm relying on the CSR I spoke with on the phone last week. So take it for what it's worth.

It would surprise the *%&$ out of me if DirecTV, owned by ATT didn't have it when U-verse will carry it...

I emailed DTV asking when they planned on picking it up. This was the response which I received aprox 7sec later.

We’re in the middle of productive discussions with Disney over ESPN’s new SEC Network and hope to be able to provide it as soon as we possibly can. Both DIRECTV and Disney understand and appreciate the unique bond between SEC teams and the communities they represent, many of which lack any professional teams. We are working cooperatively to ensure that everyone can still see their favorite SEC team play at the most reasonable value to all SEC fans and the rest of our customers throughout the Southeast.

For more information please visit directvpromise.com.

Sincerely,
DIRECTV Customer Care

DTV likes to negotiate till the very end. They did it with the weather channel. Just hope they have it by the time season begins.

I've never used DirecTV. However, they always seem to negotiate until the last minute. So why is it their prices are still higher than everybody else even with all these negotiations? Unless you're an NFL fan, I don't understand the appeal of DirecTV.

You can always switch to Dish and then switch back once Charter, TW, Direct, or whoever, get off their asses and get the SEC Network. If you are an SEC fan, you probably should do it just to penalize their asses for being slow.
