    Yep, the Gary and Doctor J thread is great for the details.

    Don't they get launched from Russia? That could be tricky with what's going on over there.

    If this year to date is any indication then it's a pretty good assumption. I don't have any source at all, just past history.

    Yeah, this is an month old post, but I don't regularly read this thread, and I wanted to reply to it (forgive me if it's been addressed in the SEC thread). I'm not trying to turn this into a DirecTV vs. DISH thread (each provider has their strengths and weaknesses).

    Here in the Southeast, DISH has been running ads touting the launch of the SEC network for a while now. They refer to themselves as "The Best In College Sports".

    Is Sixto not reporting channels in testing (i.e. SEC Network) anymore or did I miss his post?

    Is it possible that we may get one or two additional new channels now that 3net is off the air. I know that 3D Channels use more bandwidth than regular hd channels.

    No they use the same bandwidth. Its just a standard 1920x1080 feed either side by side or top bottom split. The 3D processor in the TV does the processing on this to expand it into two 960x1080 frames or two 1920x540 frames depending on top bottom or side by side format.

    One channel will not make up for more than one. They will have to juggle things as they always do. But they do have a few channels they float for alternates and overflows. They aren't all turned to PPV.

    While this does not mean anything to me, I did check and yes SEC Network is coming in here in HD. I do not have the Sports pack. Is this not going to be on cable and satellite operators sports pack? Did SEC Network demand carriage on lower tiers like Big Ten or NFL Network did when they came out? Or is this a free preview on DirecTV? I'll have to check what other providers are doing like Comcast, TWC, AT&T, Dish, etc...
