SEC Network reaches deal with Comcast cable
The SEC Network worked its way into a lot more homes after reaching an agreement with Comcast Cable.
When the SEC Network launches in August there's a good chance that, if you have cable, you'll have the SEC Network. The network announced Friday that it had reached an agreement with the largest cable distributor in the United States, Comcast.
"With more than three weeks still to go before launch, we are pleased to add Comcast, the largest cable television distributor in the country, to the growing list of providers that will bring the SEC Network to millions of fans nationwide," said SEC commissioner Mike Slive in the announcement.
By adding Comcast to the fold, the SEC Network will now be available in 46 million homes across the country, and that number could grow as there are still a couple of major cable companies that the network hasn't reached an agreement with: DirecTV and Time Warner Cable.
There's still time for an agreement to be reached with both of those companies, though, as the network won't officially launch until Aug. 14.
