There was a lot of controversy when the Longhorn Network and the SEC Network were launched. Most cable and satellite companies couldn’t provide the two networks to their customers. Suddenlink customers will soon be able to enjoy the two networks real soon.

Most college football fans, coaches and media consider the SEC o be the best conference in the nation. The launch of the SEC Network comes just two years after the Texas A&M Aggies left the Big 12 to join the SEC.

“A number of our customers have expressed interest in the SEC and Longhorn Networks, and a sizable majority have told us how much they value Disney networks like ESPN and ABC Family,” Kathy Payne, Suddenlink senior vice president and chief programming officer, said in a prepared statement. “We’re very pleased we can provide those customers what they’ve said they want, and we’d like to specially thank the SEC and Longhorn fans who contacted us for their enthusiasm and patience, as we worked with Disney to complete this comprehensive, long-term agreement.”

The networks will be launched on Suddenlink Aug. 14 in time for the 2014 college football season. The networks will also be available on DirecTV and it will be available in approximately 87 million homes.
