ATLANTA (AP) - The Southeastern Conference and ESPN have announced a 20-year agreement to operate a SEC network that's scheduled to debut in August, 2014.
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive says the SEC network will produce 1,000 live events each year, including 450 televised on the network and 550 distributed digitally. Slive says the network will carry approximately 45 SEC football games "and a depth of content across all sports" each year.
No financial terms were released for the deal, which continues through 2034.
