The announcement about the new TV contract was to be made Tuesday, along with the announcement about the SEC Network, but it was postponed due to the events in Boston. It's done, just not announced.

Probably this week, as it was supposed to have been announced last week, but it was postponed. SEC has bought up all the third-tier rights from its member schools, and an SEC Network is on the way.
