I wonder if it will go the way of the PAC-12 on the D* side. I also forsee Full Court and Gameplan going away at this rate. Between the sports pack for all of the RSN's and the continuing 24 hour conference channels, I see the value declined for both of the college sports subs.

On the brightside, more nationally televised UK B-Ball games is always good news!

Having the sports pack does not give you access to the games that are on Full Court or Gameplan...those games are blacked out unless you buy the packages.

I wonder if this could start the decline of ESPN the way we know it. With the addition of all the Sports Network, (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, Golf, Tennis, Big Ten, Pac. 12) and now the SEC, one could actually enjoy a number of sports events and never have to watch the World Wide Leader.

That's definitely not true during football season. MSG always carried GP games in the clear.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Highly unlikely... ESPN will continue to carry the marquee games and the BCS games.

Living in SEC Territory we use to get the SEC Basketball tournament on Fox Sports South in the clear. But since they created the SEC Network you have to guess which sportschannels are carrying the SEC Tournament games. MSG+ carried the first day of the tournament then the second day Altitude network from Colorado carried 2 Tournament games but not the evening games. You have to guess where your game is. The SEC is finally getting it right if they create 1 dedicated channel. I just hope they get a deal with DirecTv to carry them & don't go the way of the Pac 12 Network.

If the SEC allows individual subscriptions they shouldn't have a issue. If they don't it will be like the PAC12 network when you tune in. (snow)
BTW I'm going back to Dish in Sept. (Directv contracts up August) should a deal not be made by football season. I know at least 4 other co workers talking about doing the same so they don't miss Pac12 football season again.
I really preferred Dish's version of Redzone when I had it, so won't miss ST at all and save $. That's where the Dish advantage ends I would prefer staying with Directv other than that.

Enjoy going back. I could not go to dish they do not have MLBEI.
I have talked to many dish reps and they say they get ml network and that's just as good... That's when I laugh and walk away from them.

I can assure you, that it does. I've seen it first hand multiple times. :) ESPN3.com on the other hand, seems to wonkify some things.. though I think the few UK BBall games blacked out on RSN's were due to it being shown on local's here that DTV doesn't carry, as we live close to the Kentucky border.
--
I've never seen such an issue with College Football games though.
--
Either way, i'd much prefer a national, fulltime SEC channel, a la the Big 10/Pac 12, than the current 'which channel's comprise it' mode the 'SEC Network' operates under. I also believe the ACC currently operates that way. I'm sure they'll be next on the 24 hour conference channel wagon.
--
I'm actually somewhat surprised the SEC wasn't the first, and especially ahead of the PAC-12 in doing so.

Difference between the soon to be SEC network and the PAC-12 Nets is that SEC is doing it right and partnering with someone like the Big10 does. That's why I think this lands on D* . IMO PAC-12 got too arrogant doing their network the way they did.

SEC network right now is in the clear on C band.  And they are using widescreen SD (and even analog satellite transponders on occasion).  They will need to beef up their distro if they plan on going big time.
