    SEC Network is getting $1.30 Per Subscriber....WOW!

    That is a lot more that I ever thought that they would get.

    If you are sitting in the ACC offices right now in Greensboro and you see that number, you have to be wondering why it is taking so long for you to get this thing together for the ACC. That money is a lot for the SEC schools to be getting in your own back yard.

    By the way...that is $1.25 inside SEC markets and $0.25 outside SEC markets.

    Remember when we were trying to define the ACC markets and why that was so important?

    Is the network typically part of a more basic package or a higher priced premium sports package? As a comparison, I wonder hov many "subscribers" the B1G Network has compared to what the SEC Network will have.

    Could the people in Greensboro privately be asking themselves whether they have a product that they general populous would be interested in watching? I am not talking about just a few sports, but all the sports sponsored by the ACC since in theory they could be televised on the network at some point. Another possibility is they are trying to determine the impact to any other contracts that may be currently in place.

    i think we're just waiting for ESPN to sit down and develop a plan with us, and they've been to busy with the SECN...

    Apparently this has been agreed to by Dish Networks.

    I have zero confidence in anything coming out of Greensboro nowadays. The B1G has been making big bucks for years and the ACC is just now "looking into" a network. Ridiculous. And also, those guys just recently relarsed the long term 14 team schedules with their chests all puffed out, yet any mb poster with a clue saw them as garbage instantly. FSU in BBurg every 12 yes? As someone said earlier, the one thing you can expect from the ACC is that they'll screw this up.

    Starting a cable network out at $1.30/subscriber is huge. Just imagine how much they will be charging per subscriber over the next decade. In 5 years they'll charge $3/sub. In 10 years it'll be $5. The SEC Network will make far more money than the Pac-12 Network or the B1G Network could ever dream of.

    Totally depends on the number of subscribers. SEC is in smaller markets than B1G.

    I haven't actually run the numbers, but I'm not sure that is true. Texas and Florida are huge states, and the B1G has some small states thrown in (Iowa, Nebraska, Indiana). If anyone on here wants to take the time to add up the populations of B1G and SEC states and compare them to each other, it would be interesting to see what the actual difference is.

    Also, population will likely continues to shift out of the B1G rust belt states and into the SEC sun belt states for the next few decades at least.
