Did you know the SEC network was available in these places?
« on: September 30, 2011, 10:59:22 am »

I've gotten the 'early" SEC game (The 11:20 CST kickoff game, no longer a "JP" game, but an ESPN production) on a local channel here in DFW (Ch. 21) since the new SEC TV contract kicked in 2 years ago.  Just for grins, I looked at the latest line-up of places outside the "SEC footprint" that can now receive the early SEC "game of the week' (the one we used to call the "Jefferson Pilot" game) on local stations, without having to buy anything, and it includes:

Dallas/Fort Worth
Houston
San Antonio
Lubbock
Corpus Christi in Texas

Beyond that . . .

Spokane, Washington
Los Angeles, California
Sacramento, California
Detroit, Michigan
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Indianapolis, Indiana
South Bend, Indiana
Charlottesville, Virginia
Chicago, Illinois
Honolulu, Hawaii
Cincinnati, Ohio
Columbus, Ohio
Anchorage, Alaska
Denver, Colorado
New York City, NY
Oklahoma City, OK
Tulsa, OK
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Charlotte, NC
Raleigh/Durham, NC

I'll bet some of you have access to that game and didn't even know it!  We haven't been on it yet this year, but likely will before the season is over.  I know we were on it a couple of times last year.

Yup, even in Honolulu.  Downside is the game starts at 6am Hawaiian time on a Saturday morning.  Drunk as a skunk by 9am.  CBS SEC game comes on at 9 or 9:30am and the ESPN late game at 2 or 2:30pm.  And still time to go to the beach to watch the sun set afterwards.  Aloha and Go Hogs Go!

This was a part of ESPN Region TV's (ESPN+) appeal over staying w/ Raycom.  ESPN+ contract was to continue with the same SEC footprint markets that JP/Raycom had used for years, but to go nationwide w/ the syndication.  Goal is to be on either a local station or a local RSN in all top 20 markets plus SEC markets. 
ESPN+ also took the ACC syndication package away from Raycom beginning w/ this season.  However, to avoid either conference thinking that the sales department or the syndication department was favoring one conference over the other, ESPN sublicensed it back to Raycom w/ the understanding that they were to go nationwide.
So both conferences are syndicated nationwide in HD on local stations as a part of ERT in Charlotte.

I'm in Spokane Wa and last week I was flipping through the channels before the Hog game and i ran across the Ole Miss Georgia game.  Never even crossed my mind that I would have acess to that game every Sat.  Been going to the sports bars the last couple of years when the Hogs were playing that game.  Needless to say I was super stoked to know that I can now watch it in my living room!  Go Hogs....Beat A&M!!

Not only is that great for out of state fans, but also it can only help in recruiting to get exposure across the entire nation like that.

We watched the ole miss-Vandy game at our troy tailgate on directv on the Madison Square Garden channel in HD. It was on the locals but I got kick out of watching the SEC on the MSG channel with the ticker being mainly Yankee crap.

And while this year they have been pretty good to carry it, Springfield, MO a mere 125 miles away from Fayetteville has frequently failed to carry it over the years.  Do you know how frustrating it was to know that places like Sacramento was showing Arkansas, and I could not see it because I had Dish, lived in Arkansas and yet was forced to get my locals from a city that does a whole lot to pretend like we aren't right next door to them.
