The SEC will have a 24-hour-a-day home.

On Thursday at a news conference in Atlanta, the SEC and ESPN announced the SEC Network would launch in August 2014, an agreement that will run through 2034.

What’s it mean for fans?

Well, you’ll get your fill of SEC football, basketball, baseball and other sports on the 24-hour network, including 45 football games. There will also be special shows for such events as national signing day and pro timing days.
