Is anybody in the tampa area actually able to watch the SEC network yet? It was not available on my guide when i left the house this morning. If you are able to watch it, did you have to reset the box or anything?
I'm in Tampa and it is showing up for me on channels 75 and 575. I first saw it early this morning (around 5am). It is not showing up in the guide yet, so I couldn't channel surf up or down. Had to enter channel 575 manually with the remote. Not sure how they roll it out for everyone though. I didn't have to reset the box or anything. It was just there. I am not able to access it on WatchESPN yet.
Thanks a ton for this info. I may actually run home during lunch to see if i can get it to work. I'm like a kid on christmas. I have to say, although im not happy about how Verizon went about this whole process, it almost made it that much sweeter once eevrything was worked out. Kinda like if you had to watch the Gators go down by three thouchdowns late in the second half only to actually pull out a win.
I know it doesnt help those outside of florida or maybe even texas, but i went home for lunch and without rebooting or anything i was able to watch teh SEC network on 575. They were showing the Missouri-South Carolina game from last year. While 575 showed on the guide, there was no logo on the left by the channel number and there was a title of what program was showing, but no description. Just thought i would share in the hopes it helps somebody.
I'm in the Dallas area and it's not even showing up here although the channels are intact, just a blank screen even after rebooting twice.
Same thing in Tampa FL except I dont even get a blank screen. Whatever channel I was on prior to entering the numbers just freezes.
