Post Peachtree TV is the SEC’s new home in Atlanta

Thursday June 4, 2009

Last month we learned that Comcast would add ESPNU before the football season, bringing the SEC television lineup into focus for many in metro Atlanta. Now the AJC confirms the speculation that Peachtree TV will be the outlet of choice for regional ESPN-produced broadcasts. The deal also includes a lot of SEC men’s basketball on Saturdays and Wednesdays starting during conference play in January as well as eight Sundays of SEC women’s basketball.

The national broadcasts will still be on CBS, ESPN, ESPNU, and ESPN2. Think of it this way – instead of WATL 36 or wherever else you used to look for the regional JP games, they’ll be on Peachtree TV now (only at noon instead of 12:30 – oy). The enhanced basketball coverage is especially welcome. It’ll be a double-header every Saturday during the conference schedule as well as one game each Wednesday (in addition to national games on ESPN as before).

Peachtree TV is available in standard and high definition format on major cable and satellite providers in Atlanta. Keep in mind this is for the Atlanta area only – Peachtree TV is a local channel and not a superstation or national network. Fans in other markets will find the games on different stations or as before on Gameplan. We’ll be happy to post those stations here as deals are announced – just send word.
