Ch. 38 will be the go-to network for SEC sports in Tampa-St. Pete
The new network is part of the groundbreaking 15-year agreement between ESPN and the SEC. In markets outside of the nine-state area, the programming will be carried on either local television stations or regional sports cable networks.
Coverage will include extensive football and men's and women's basketball games. The SEC Network will feature an SEC football Game of the Week for 13 consecutive Saturdays, beginning on Sept. 5. Those games will kick off at noon ET with the live SEC Studio show, followed by the game at 12:21 ET. Matchups will generally be determined six-to-12 days in advance.
More than 54 million households are expected to be served by the SEC Network. The ESPN-SEC agreement runs through the 2023-24 season.
Here is a list of the other stations in Florida:
Ft. Meyer-Naples (WXCW); Gainesville (WOGX); Jacksonville/Brunswick (WJXT); Miami-Ft. Lauderdale (WSFL); Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne (WOFL/WRBW); Panama City (WJHG); Tallahassee/Thomasville (WCTV/WCTV-DT2).
