SEC Network to be announced Tuesday 4/16

1

The SEC has bought back it's third party TV and digital rights from IMG College, Learfield Sports and CBS Collegiate Sports Properties, "the three rights holders that work with the conference’s 14 schools. Those third-tier TV rights represent one football game, eight men’s basketball games, baseball, women’s basketball and all other nonrevenue sports that are not picked up by ESPN or a syndicated partner." Link to Sports Business Daily article is above. This is good news, as it should put more basketball, baseball, women's basketball, and other sports that are currently shown over the internet from each school under one umbrella on TV, and hopefully free on ESPN3 as well. It's been a pain the past few years to have to pay $10 to LSU or Alabama to watch a 3 game baseball series on their equivalent of "GTV," then turn around and drop another $10 two weeks later to Mississippi State or Auburn to watch the games they're hosting, only because those schools have different rights holders. Good job by the SEC joining the 21st century in this regard.
