Report: Comcast, SEC Network near agreement

This is big news in a lot of Mississippi communities including Tupelo. The Comcast exec quoted in this Fox Sports report seems to be pretty optimistic.

    Hallelujah!!! I have CommieCast. They just saved many a customer by making the decision to carry the SEC Network.

      Beeze, I felt the same way when I read that, but slow down. The Comcast exec in the story sounds very optimistic, but you never know what happens with these talks in the final stages.

        You’re probably right. I’ll wait on pins & needles. :))

    I am a Direct TV guy. I also do not have the SEC network at this time. I wrote Direct TV and ask them if they were going to risk losing the SEC viewers to Dish network. As soon as my contract is up I will move to Dish if Direct TV does not get the SEC network this August, even if they get it before my contract is up
