Let me make it clear! Come August 30th and Auburn vs. Arkansas is not televised on Verizon Fios. I will move to Bright House and will never come back to Verizon Fios. It is absurd that you are the ONLY hold out for all your SEC costomers.

As the only major provider that has not yet signed a contract for the SEC network, can anyone from Verizon tell me when they ar egoing to pull their heads out of their caboose and get this done?  Seriously.

In DFW, there were at least 6 alternate providers that carry the SEC Network...

Right but I don't think ESPN 360/Watch ESPN will work for SEC Network content unless Verizon carries it. 


No it does not work. Your TV provider has to be carrying the SEC Network in order for you to see on ESPN Watch.

Looks like good news for those of you in the SEC footprint, but still sucks for me in Rhode Island!

Thank you for that information!  It would be beyond stupid for them not to have it available to everyone.

I would agree that this would be beyond stupid if its not offered to everyone. It just would not make any sense not to offer it nationwide. Appreciate you sharing with everyone. We need to continue to let our voice be heard until an offical announcement is made by Verizon / SEC Network.

Does this mean Verizon will offer the network in ALL markets? If not then this does me no good.

After reading it again, the article says that SEC Network will be on an expanded Basic tier within SEC states. Perhaps, outside of this area, SEC Network will be available on a higher tier package. That's what I'm thinking (hoping) will happen.
