Report: Verizon will carry SEC Network as part of FiOS TV package
The SEC Network will be carried by Verizon as part of its FiOS TV service, Sports Business Daily's John Ourand reports.
Verizon will include it in an expanded package in SEC territory, but its availability in other regions is not known. Details could be announced this week, according to Ourand.
Earlier this month the SEC Network reached an agreement with DirecTV to carry the ESPN-owned channel which launched last week. Comcast reached an agreement with the network last month. The Verizon agreement will bring the SEC Network's total subscriber count to more than 60 million nationwide.
Ourand reports Cablevision is the only top 10 distributor that hasn't completed a deal to carry the SEC Network.
