After leaving many of us worried it may never happen, Time Warner Cable and the SEC Network announced today that they have agreed to a deal. TWC and Bright House Networks will carry the new channel when it launches on August 14, adding another 60 million households nationwide.
“We know we have customers who want the SEC Network, and are pleased to bring it to them,” said Andrew Rosenberg, Senior Vice President of Content Acquisition for Time Warner Cable, in the official press release. “This deal will help ensure that fans and alumni of SEC universities won’t miss any important games.”
The deal leaves Direct TV as the last major entity to not to take the SEC Network, but it is expect to happen soon, before the launch.
