FiOS SEC Talks

Premium Content

It sounds like an SEC Network deal with Verizon FiOS could be announced any moment now. Both sides indicated productive conversations are underway, and Sports Business Daily quoted sources saying a deal would include expanded basic carriage within the SEC territory (it’s unclear what happens outside the SEC footprint). We’re told nothing official had been signed Thurs, but things were looking good. Assuming the deal is a go, it will leave Cablevision as the only top 10 MVPD without a contract for the net. Next Thurs is the big day to watch, when SEC Net shows its 1st football games (6 pm ET, Texas A&M at South Carolina; and 9:15pm, Temple at Vanderbilt).
