To get the SEC Network, contact a cable or satellite provider to add it to a current account. As of 2015, the SEC Network is available on AT&T U-Verse, DirectTV, Dish and Verizon FIOS, among other providers.
The SEC Network works in collaboration between the Southeastern Conference and ESPN. The network airs SEC-based content 24 hours a day, which includes annual broadcasts of almost 50 football games, 100 men's basketball games, 60 women's basketball games, baseball, softball and other sports. The network also features original programming and studio shows, and it airs more than 1,000 live events each year.
Some of the current programs include "SEC Live" and "SEC Nation." Dari Nowkhah hosts "SEC Live" and discusses all of the SEC news of the day with his panel. Joe Tessitore hosts "SEC Nation," a program with game previews, features and highlights. "SEC Nation" often features athletes and contributors who are familiar with the SEC, including Paul Finebaum, Tim Tebow and Marcus Spears. Finebaum also has his own show on the network, where he shares his opinions about SEC football and other conference-related content.
For subscribers of the SEC Network, in addition to watching these programs on a television, it is also possible to watch the programming on a mobile phone or tablet. For those who subscribe to a cable provider that does not offer the SEC Network, the network suggests contacting the provider to request it.
