SEC Network Alternate channels

SEC Network Alternate channels

The SEC Network is televising two games at 4:00 Saturday September 6, 2014.  They, on the air, say one will be on the alternate SEC channel. Some friends of mine with another system in Orlando have this alternate channel in their line up.

 

Does Comcast have this alternative SEC channel. Here is the programming

Eastern Michigan at Florida – 3:00PM (CT) – SEC Network
Nicholls State at Arkansas – 3:00PM (CT) – SEC Network

 

I am in zip code 32065 (Orange Park, FL)

ComcastTeds, could you please tell me the alternate channel for the Shreveport, LA area (71118)? I've been on the phone for what seems like all day and no one could help me. Most had no clue what the SECNETWORK even was. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If not you, help from anyone else would also be great. All I can find is the SD channel - 745 and the two HD channels -516, 1738 and I don't think that any of those are alternate channels. Thanks again.

 

Yes, Channel 761 is the SEC Network alternate channel in your area


***Verified Accurate Solution on 09/2017***

 

All - the SEC Network Channel Finder tool has been updated to include the alternate channels (where available)  

 

http://getsecnetwork.com/channel-finder

 

To quickly locate the SEC Network and-or the SEC alternate channels (where available) –

 

  • Using the silver Comcast remote control and traditional blue on-screen guide, press the Menu button twice, then select Find Shows, then select Sports, then select All Sports – you should be able to scroll through that list up and down to locate the SEC Network in SD or HD.
  • X1 customers with our black on-screen guide. Using the black Comcast remote control, enter in SECN (numbers 7-3-2-6) and the SEC Network should appear as an option near the top of the list. Select and press OK. Or search for the team you are looking to watch.

 

As a reminder, Comcast also provides digital access to all SEC Network and SEC Network + events on the WatchESPN app and SECNetwork.com.

 

An update from earlier is that some areas will be offering the SEC alternate channel in HD.

 

The SEC Channel Finder link above should have that information.

Re: What Channel is the SEC Network

Is there an update on this?  Two games on 9/6.  When I look at DirecTV, Dish, ATT, I see they have the SEC Alternate channel to carry both games.  What about Comcast?  My ZIP is 37067.

What channel is it for Fresno?

Re: What Channel is the SEC Network

According to http://www.getsecnetwork.com for zip code 37067 the SEC Network will be on channel 718 and 1738 HD.

 

I haven't heard Comcast say anything about an alternate SEC Network channel. That is not surprising since it has been a challenge for them to even get one channel going for some people.

 

ESPN has the followng listed for Saturday, September 6 for the SEC Network:

12:00 PM   Arkansas State @ Tennessee
12:00 PM   Florida Atlantic @ #2 Alabama
04:00 PM   Eastern Michigan @ Florida
04:00 PM   Nicholls State @ Arkansas
07:30 PM   Lamar @ #21 Texas A&M
07:30 PM   Sam Houston State @ #13 LSU

 

If I look at Comcast's channel guide it says for each of the three time periods I will be able to see one of the two games played then. I guess I will have to wait until airtime to see what is shown. Of course for the people like me that live in Alabama we will be quite upset if the Florida Atlantic @ #2 Alabama game is not shown at noon.

Re: What Channel is the SEC Network

I'm wondering the same thing.

 

What is the alternate SEC Network channel for HD? And why is it not already listed? You guys probably know by now that SEC fans are a bit crazy about their football and need to plan every watch party weeks in advance. This 'not listing the channel until the day of' thing is very frustrating.

 

Thanks.

Re: SEC Network Alternate channels

Thanks ComcastTeds.  Will it be available in time for this Saturday given that 3 sets of 2 games each are being broadcast simultaneously?  (one set at 12n, one set at 3pm and one set at 6:30pm)?

 

I'll check my guide Saturday morning again just in case.

Re: SEC Network Alternate channels

What is this? Is Comcast the B team or C team? Why is it that Dish, UVerse, etc. are always laping Comcast? Is this Comcastic? I'm starting to wonder if all these "issues" are worth staying with Comcast. If my game is not accessible on my system come Saturday, you can bet I'll be headed over to one of the A team outfits.

In Houston there is an alternate channel (142) but it's in SD. We have don't have DVR's on these DTA devices. Why isn't there an alternate sec network channel in HD? This is silly....

Re: What Channel is the SEC Network

You're kidding, right?  You can't possibly want to watch the bama game vs. the UT game scheduled for broadcast at the same time.

 

Hey I'm kidding of course. I've got the same issue in Atlanta in trying to figure out which game will be broadcast on the main channel vs. the alternative. I did find what is portrayed as an alternative channel, but it doesn't appear to be HD. Hopefully Comcast will come through for us..... soon!

Re: SEC Network Alternate channels

I'm sure I'm wasting my time even asking, but how about alternate channel for Boston (02115)?

 

Also - you do realize when Dish and other national carriers do make both available, it's just one more nudge for us loyal customers to leave.  It was already bad enough you guys don't include this in the Sports Package and had to go to digital preferred just to get one channel.

Re: SEC Network Alternate channels- *** TRY THIS ***

I think I might have found the alternate channel for Atlanta- you may want to try it for your area (of course, I would like this to be confirmed before Saturday).

 

> I had the channel set on the SEC Network

> I pressed the info button

> Then I selected the "clock" icon, and 3 channels were shown (for Atlanta, channels 300, 1738, and 792)

     > 300 is the standard SECN channel

     > 1738 is the HD channel

     > I am assuming/hoping 792 is the alternative HD channel (now it shows the same programing as the designated HD channel)

 

As a sidenote, I also tried the SEC Network website, and it indicated the two primary channels consistent with what I've been watching; however, it indicated 281 as the 3rd..... and there's 2 problems here: this channel is already assigned to unrelated programming and it is not HD. Here's the website- enter your area code and provider.

Good luck!

Re: What Channel is the SEC Network

There is still some confusion on which Channel the SEC network is on. I am in Alabama area code 35805.

If I now check http://www.getsecnetwork.com/ I get this:

Comcast XFINITY offers the SEC Network on channel 740/532 and 1738 HD

 

I just checked the Comcast program guide for my TV and found this:

740 SECN SEC Network
746 SECNA SEC Alternate Channel
747 SECNB SEC Alternate Channel
1738 SECND SEC Network HD

 

That indicates two SEC Alternate Channels where I live! Also there is nothing on channel 532.

 

The Comcast program guide still does not indicate what will be on the primary SEC channel and what will be on the alternate for Saturday. Hopefully that will be worked out by Saturday.

 

BTW, I only expect channel 1738 to be in HD. That is because where I live only channels above 1000 are in HD.

We get the channel in Boston (02129) but there's no info on the alternate. Are we getting the alternate channel too?


SEC alternate channel for your area is channel 138.

We are working with SEC Network to update their online channel finder tool to also include the alternate channel for locations where that channel is available. Link below:

SEC Network determines which game will be available on their primary and alternate channels in each area.

The alternate channel may be "active" earlier but there is no programming scheduled until Saturday.

Is there anyway that you could tell me what game they will show on their Primary Channel 5:30 in the Denver CO area

Re: SEC Network Alternate channels

I live in 37659 zip code. SEC only listed 2 channels. Other providers have alternates. Will that change on game day possibly?
