SEC’s new network with ESPN to debut in 2014

ATLANTA  — The Southeastern Conference and ESPN have announced a 20-year agreement to operate a SEC network that is scheduled to debut in August, 2014.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said today the SEC network will produce 1,000 live events each year, including 450 televised on the network and 550 distributed digitally. Slive says the network will carry approximately 45 SEC football games “and a depth of content across all sports” each year.

No financial terms were released for the deal, which continues through 2034.

The announcement came at a news conference attended by Slive, ESPN President John Skipper, 32 SEC coaches and each of the league’s 14 athletic directors.

ESPN senior vice president Justin Connolly says AT&T U-Verse has signed on as the network’s first distributor.
