Some clarification from the author:

SBD: Verizon Fios agrees to carry SEC Network; 9 of top 10 distributors carry the week-old channel. http://t.co/z7NswD5V1r

@Ourand_SBJ Re: Fios and SEC Network. To clarify, will people outside the SEC footprint have the channel on a higher tier package?

@jtmathwig Correct. I don't know what tier it will be on outside SEC territory

I live here in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia which is full of SEC graduates and fans since it is a hub for the military. I am constantly seeing SEC school stickers and tags here. Verizon please {please keep your posts courteous} offer it nation wide for all of us before I have to go back to Cox or shift to Direct or Dish.

Our local school in the Hampton Roads area - Old Dominion University - has a game this fall at Vanderbilt.  Though it's far enough out that TV coverage has not been announced, you can bet $$$ it will be on the SEC Network.  Even if you're not a fan of an SEC school, if a team you like plays a game at an SEC school, you need the SEC Network to see it.

It will be offered nationwide, just on a different tier. I don't understand why it wouldn't be offered on the same or lower tier since they are charging less for customers outside the SEC footprint.

I live in Maryland and am on the Preferred tv package...hopefully this will be high enough for the SEC Network.

Would love to see the SEC Network offered nationwide on the same level.  Just because we are outside the SEC doesn't mean we don't have ties to the Southeast.  A huge fan myself with one daughter at Georgia and one daughter at Bama.  I have been calling Comcast today to get switched over and grateful to learn the news today.  There are many households just like myself in the Philly, Jersey, DC/VA that have kids going to school down at SEC schools.  Verizon.....do the right thing and offer viewership at same level nationwide for a super sports channel.  You can already see how strong it is within the lineup for ALL sports networks.

I'm in Maryland also flying the UT colors but have the basic package and have no problem upgrading if that's what it takes.  I know and see numerous fans from all the SEC schools so I know the SEC is well represented in the Balt/DC area and other major metropolitan areas in the northeast.
