The SEC Network makes its highly-anticipated debut on Aug 14, but how can DISH Network subscribers find the new channel in their lineup?
DISH announced on Monday that it will air the SEC Network on channel 404 within the Hopper Whole Home HD DVR’s channel guide, according to their press release. Current DISH customers who subscribe to the America’s Top 120+ package and above will receive both SEC Network and Longhorn Network at no additional cost.
“Saturday is the new Sunday and DISH is proud to deliver the best in college sports with SEC Network, Pac-12 Networks, Big Ten Network and Longhorn Network,” said Joseph P. Clayton, DISH President and CEO. “DISH was the first nationwide provider to secure rights for SEC Network when we announced our deal in March, and we have been welcoming college football fans for months. We cannot wait for kickoff.”
The SEC Network will air its first of 45 games this season on Aug 28 when the Texas A&M Aggies take on the South Carolina Gamecocks.
For those looking to add DISH Network as their provider, if you sign up for the Top 120+ package by October 21, you will get the Multi-Sport package included through the end of the year that includes the Big Ten Network, Pac-12 Network, ESPN Goal Line and NFL Red Zone from NFL Network.
For a die-hard sports fan, that’s a pretty nice deal and unlike their satellite competitor, DirecTV, they don’t offer the Pac-12 or Longhorn Networks.
If you were on the fence before about your cable/satellite provider, the addition of those two channels may be enough for you to make the switch.
