Charter to Carry SEC Network Upon Launch [Updated]

SEC_Network_ESPN_LogoCharter says they will carry ESPN’s SEC Network when it launches on August 14, 2014. The company is the latest provider to finalize a deal with ESPN to carry SEC, following announcements from Bright House Networks, Comcast, Cox, and Time Warner Cable last month. AT&T was the first provider to strike a deal with ESPN back in January.

SEC Network will be dedicated to coverage of the Southeastern Conference of college sports, starting with live broadcasts of Texas A&M vs. South Carolina and Temple vs. Vanderbilt on August 28. The network plans to cover approximately 45 football games, 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games, and 75 baseball games throughout the year.

AT&T, Bright House Networks, Charter, Comcast Xfinity, Cox, DISH, Google Fiber, and Time Warner Cable are among the television service providers who have already made deals with ESPN to carry the network. DIRECTV and Verizon have yet to announce any plans to carry SEC when it launches this month.

So far, channel locations including HD broadcasts have been verified for AT&T (Ch. 1607) and DISH (Ch. 408). SEC Network will broadcast in 720p( HD) and 480i (SD).
