ESPN’s New 15-Year Deal With SEC Includes Live Mobile College Games

ESPN (NYSE: DIS) has the right to simulcast Southeastern Conference (SEC) games on mobile under a new 15-year deal with the powerhouse athletic conference. The deal, reported by SBJ to be worth $2.25 billion, includes simulcasts of live games — including football and basketball — on ESPN Mobile TV. As was the case with the groundbreaking agreement with MLBAM announced last week, ESPN’s rights extend to emerging platforms, such as XBox, iTunes and Zune, and to new platforms. The SEC includes 12 schools: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
