— The Southeastern Conference will launch its own network in August 2014.

SEC and ESPN officials announced the formation of the SEC Network on Thursday in Atlanta. ESPN president John Skipper said the agreement between the two sides runs through 2034.

As part of the agreement, the SEC Network will air at least 45 football games, more than 100 men's basketball games, 75 baseball games and 60 women's basketball games each year, SEC commissioner Mike Slive said. Original content and specific school content will also be developed for the network.

AT&T U-Verse is the first TV service provider to agree to distribute the network, according to ESPN.
