So football has started on the SEC Network. First day, a game goes to the alternate channel. Guess what, Directv does not carry the alternate channel. Geeeezzzzzz.

It's already being discussed here:

ESPN told providers it wouldn't be needed until next weekend so a lot of providers didn't have it, even Dish who had a slot for the alternate in their EPG didn't carry it.

Yeah sounds like ESPN dropped the ball, I'm not sure if anyone with any provider was able to get the alternate feed. Rest assured a lot of angry fans took to Twitter, and I'm sure everyone will have things figured out in time for next weekend's games.
