Comcast adds SEC Network to programming

Comcast (CMCSA +0.5%) announces it signed a deal with the new SEC Network (NYSE:DIS).

The company will also offer up access to authenticated pay TV customers on its Xfinity service and through the WatchESPN app.

The big picture: Though financial terms weren't disclosed, the apparent ease with which the new sports network is adding carriage fee deals is a testament to the leverage Disney has with its ESPN juggernaut. Trying to chip away at ESPN's sports rights dominance is at least a small part of the rationale behind 21st Century Fox and Time Warner joining forces.
