SEC Network broadcasts events over the 21 sports that are approved by the conference; within its first year, the network and its digital outlets planned to air at least 1,000 live events, with at least 450 on TV. Yearly, the network will air about 45 football games, 60 women’s basketball games, 100 men’s basketball games, and 75 baseball games.
For football, SEC Network broadcasts three Saturday games per week in the early, afternoon, and evening, typically the least essential sports of the week. While CBS keeps its first pick of games for its afternoon telecast, it no longer has an independent broadcast window for SEC football games, allowing the SEC Network to broadcast games alongside CBS. SEC Network declared plans to air football games featuring all 14 of the conference’s feature schools within the first month of the 2014 season.
Events not aired on television are streamed online through SEC Network’s website and the WatchESPN service under the SEC Network Plus branding. ESPN team worked with each SEC member school to ensure that they have in-house production facilities able of originating programming and live events for SEC Network. These games also cover home Conference USA men’s soccer matches highlighting the two men’s soccer playing parts of the SEC.
