You’re still missing the Atlanta Braves if you have DISH, but you’ll be able to watch the SEC Network this fall.
Disney, which is ESPN’s parent company, and DISH signed an agreement to show the new network.
Here’s SEC commish Mike Slive:
“This is an important day for the SEC Network. We are pleased to welcome DISH to the SEC family. More than five months ahead of the network launch, it’s exciting to have a national distributor and our first satellite provider on board. Now SEC fans from across the country have another way to show their conference pride and sign up to get the SEC Network.”
The SEC Network will show 45 SEC football games among more than 1,000 sporting events in its first year. That total includes more than 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games, 75 baseball games, 50 softball games and events across all of the SEC’s 21 sports, according to a release.
DISH and AT&T U-verse are the first providers to sign deals to show the SEC Network. They have a combined 24 million subscribers.
The network is scheduled to debut on Aug. 14, and the first football games are scheduled to be Texas A&M at South Carolina and Temple at Vanderbilt on Aug. 28.
