Not so much for the "physical" space, but they do like to keep channels together.  Therefore, it makes more sense to put SEC Network in the 90/590 range, closer to ESPN, than it would to just randomly assign it to wherever there's a spot on the guide, and it ends up between Oprah and Church.

I am down to my last week with FIOS if they don't get the SEC Network.  Sorry to go but can't see paying this amount of money and still not getting to see my Aggies.  Mys deadline is Friday the 15th.  Get it done FIOS!

WOW at that list of providers that are carrying the SEC Network...and Verizon even has a market in TX and FL which are two SEC states. 

 

They better announce something this week or I am GONE!!

I see that the FXX channel has been moved...and that spot sits right in the mix with ESPN, FoxSports, Big10 network.

 

Better move quick so I can cancel my Brighthouse installation.

Some major competitors are willing to pay cancellation fees for Verizon customers to switch over to them.  That is definitely the route I will be taking come Friday.  It is a travesty that they have let this go on this long and are willing to lose customers in major networks.

Yes, but it only needs one channel in that range and as long as there is at least one channel there, they don't have to move anything to make room for it.

KAM2523 you are wrong.  UK Basketball plays summer ball on day one August 14th.  That's a huge fanbase to tick off.

 

 

I'm signing up elsewhere, Verizon doesn't give a crap about it's customers

Exactly right. The first live event the SEC Network is showing is a UK basketball game in the Bahama's this Friday. I would like to see that game and the other two the SEC Network is showing. I don't know how much of a presence Fios has in Kentucky but if its much at all people will be jumping ship really fast. Basketball is a religion in the state and the people do not want to miss their UK basketball games.

But there really weren't any available channels in that range prior to the adjustments that are still coming out.

That spot is where Fox Sports 2 is moving.
