The SEC is the best sports league in college athletics, so of course it deserves its own radio channel.

That is finally coming to fruition, as SiriusXM and the SEC have partnered to launch SiriusXM SEC Radio. It will launch in early 2018 and will be available to SiriusXM subscribers.

It will include radio broadcasts of SEC sporting events, so this could turn into a way to listen to UK games on satellite radio.

Here are more details via the press release:

The new channel's programming lineup will include exclusive new shows as well as simulcasts of SEC Network programming, and will give listeners access to weekly college coaches shows, press conferences, classic SEC game broadcasts, coverage of SEC Media Days, as well as curated, SEC-specific highlights.

SiriusXM SEC Radio will also feature live play-by-play broadcasts of conference events from several men's and women's sports including football, basketball, baseball, softball and more. (Live SEC game broadcasts will be available on satellite radios only.)

SiriusXM and the SEC recently signed a multi-year extension of their play-by-play broadcast agreement, which will continue to give SiriusXM listeners access to live play-by-play broadcasts of every SEC football game, an extensive schedule of SEC basketball games, as well as events from other SEC men's and women's sports.
