SEC TV (formerly SEC Network) was an syndicated package featuring live broadcasts of college football and basketball events from the Southeastern Conference. It was owned and operated by ESPN Plus and shown in more than 50 percent of households in the United States, mostly Southeastern United States markets.[1] SEC TV's football games typically aired in the noon eastern slot that was former home to the Jefferson-Pilot/Raycom Sports SEC game of the week. Games were shown locally on broadcast stations, regional sports networks,[1] as well as on ESPN GamePlan, ESPN Full Court, and WatchESPN.

SEC TV was discontinued after the 2013-14 college sports season, as ESPN launched SEC Network—a 24-hour cable network devoted to the conference. The new network would assume the duty of broadcasting football games in the "early" window used by SEC TV, among others.[2][3]


It began in 2009 as the SEC Network after Raycom Sports (formerly Jefferson-Pilot and Lincoln Financial Sports) lost the syndicated broadcast rights to ESPN Regional Television after 22 years of broadcasting SEC basketball games and 17 years of SEC Football. [4]

The first SEC televised game by the syndicated SEC Network was the Tennessee Volunteers football team’s 63-7 blowout win over the WKU Hilltoppers on September 5, 2009. Dave Neal (an original Jefferson-Pilot/Raycom play-by-play football commentator) and Andre Ware were the play-by-play commentators, and Cara Capuano was the sideline reporter.

Unlike Jefferson-Pilot/Raycom Sports, SEC TV also carried some regular season Women’s basketball games in syndication on Sunday afternoons during basketball season.

SEC TV was available through 102 over-the-air television stations in the now-11-state SEC footprint, and beyond into the rest of the United States. Game telecast by SEC TV was also available through seven regional sports networks serving areas outside the SEC footprint (just like Raycom and Jefferson-Pilot used to do). In addition, SEC TV’s broadcasts were also made available via ESPN GamePlan, ESPN Full Court, and ESPN3. Since WPCH-TV in Atlanta (a.k.a. PeachTree TV) also carried SEC TV-syndicated games, and because of that station’s status as a national superstation and its availability in Canada, those broadcasts could also be viewed in Canada via cable and satellite, as well as certain U.S. markets without a station carrying SEC TV in their home area.

In 2013, with the announcement that ESPN would be launching an SEC cable network under the same name in 2014, SEC Network was re-branded as SEC TV on September 7, 2013. The syndication package was duly canceled following the 2013 football season and the 2013-2014 basketball season because of the 2014 launch on the new SEC Network. The quarterfinals of the 2014 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament on the night of Friday, March 14, 2014, was the last SEC TV syndicated telecast. The new SEC Network was launched on August 14, 2014 at 6:00 PM Eastern Time (5:00 PM Central Time/4:00 PM Mountain Time/3:00 PM Pacific Time). [5][3]
