SiriusXM and the SEC will partner to launch SiriusXM SEC radio in early 2018. The two already have an agreement to live broadcast every SEC football game along with an extensive schedule of basketball games. Now, SEC fans will gain added coverage of the conference.
“College sports have always been an important part of SiriusXM’s lineup, and the launch of a dedicated SEC channel breaks new ground and brings our college sports programming to another level,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “SEC fans have tremendous passion for their colleges and universities and we are focused on giving those fans the kind of access, news and analysis that keeps them connected to their teams, wherever they live and wherever they go.”
The new SiriusXM SEC radio will include content exclusive to the channel, as well as simulcast select SEC Network shows. Weekly college shows, press conferences, media days, highlights, classic SEC games, and live events from a variety of sports will all be part of the channel’s programming.
“SiriusXM’s new SEC-dedicated channel results from our fans’ loyalty and passion, which demands we continue to expand the reach of the Conference in new and innovative ways,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “SEC fans have an interest in news and information, which they can now access through a SiriusXM channel that provides another opportunity to access timely, reliable and entertaining content about the Southeastern Conference.”
SiriusXM SEC radio will be channel 374 which is only available on select satellite radios, but all SiriusXM subscribers will have access to the channel through the SiriusXM app.
