I know that down south SEC Network is offered; however, considering you offer the Big 10 network and the Longhorn network nationwide I don't see how a network for such a huge fanbase isn't offered.  Especially for the Ultimate Package.  Can we please get more sports channels, especially in HD?

The overflow channel for the football games this week on the SEC Network will be channel 332 per this article. They are carrying two games at the same time at noon,4 pm and 7:30 pm.

Plan to use a friend's Verizon account info to get access to WatchESPN.  Not giving them another red cent while they are urinating on their customers.

Not on in Northern Virginia as of early this morning. I may try to reboot if it isn't showing up this eveinng. But I"m thinking if you live outside of Florida or Texas this isn't going to show up until tomorrow the 28th.

Also no authentification on the ESPN Watch app. Still says to contact Verizon for access to the SEC Network.

Still not seeing it here in the DFW area and still getting the message on WatchESPN that Verizon does not carry the SEC network.

Pretty sure you can't log in to WatchESPN for the SEC Network games without first subscribing to a plan with the SEC Network.  I hope I am wrong.  SD is total crap.  I don't watch SD anything.

Is anybody in the tampa area actually able to watch the SEC network yet?  It was not available on my guide when i left the house this morning.  If you are able to watch it, did you have to reset the box or anything?

Apparently the same people than handled the rollout of Obamacare are also heading up Verizon's release of the SEC Network.

I'm in Tampa and it is showing up for me on channels 75 and 575.  I first saw it early this morning (around 5am).  It is not showing up in the guide yet, so I couldn't channel surf up or down.  Had to enter channel 575 manually with the remote. Not sure how they roll it out for everyone though.  I didn't have to reset the box or anything.  It was just there.  I am not able to access it on WatchESPN yet.

Thanks a ton for this info. I may actually run home during lunch to see if i can get it to work. I'm like a kid on christmas.  I have to say, although im not happy about how Verizon went about this whole process, it almost made it that much sweeter once eevrything was worked out.  Kinda like if you had to watch the Gators go down by three thouchdowns late in the second half only to actually pull out a win. Smiley LOL

I'm in the Dallas area and it's not even showing up here although the channels are intact, just a blank screen even after rebooting twice.

I know it doesnt help those outside of florida or maybe even texas, but i went home for lunch and without rebooting or anything i was able to watch teh SEC network on 575.  They were showing the Missouri-South Carolina game from last year.  While 575 showed on the guide, there was no logo on the left by the channel number and there was a title of what program was showing, but no description.  Just thought i would share in the hopes it helps somebody.

Here in Richmond, VA, the Verizon Fios people said, yes, we'd have both channel 75 and 575 by Thursday Aug. 28th.  Just looked and it's not showing up now (though maybe, just maybe) it might show up earlier.  No such luck.  Just hoping they have it by tomorrow like they said they would.  We'll see.

I thought HD was only going to be available in TX and FL?? If they are going to have HD in VA then I would hope that would be true for every market.
