What is considered by many to be the best college sports conference in the country has found a home on FiOS TV following an agreement reached between Verizon and the SEC Network.

Verizon will begin airing the channel prior to August 28 on channel 75 and 575. It will be available on those channels to all FiOS TV customers in Florida and Texas that receive ESPN in their FiOS TV package and to FiOS Extreme and Ultimate customers on channel 75 in all other markets at launch.

The agreement also includes live viewing rights and additional live and on-demand content scheduled for SEC Network + across other platforms like smartphones, tablets and laptops via WatchESPN and SECNetwork.com. In addition, the deal also includes rights for the FiOS Mobile app, which will be available to FiOS customers in the near future.

The first year of the SEC Network will feature 45 football games, including the Texas A&M versus South Carolina and the Temple versus Vanderbilt kickoff doubleheader on Aug. 28.

Other games airing within the first year include:

  • More than 100 men's basketball games
