I wonder why they didn't do this earlier today. A lot of useless hang-wrangling would have probably been avoided.

hang-wrangling ?

What hang-wrangling ?

The SEC network didn't have any issues, Directv didn't have any issues, they did what they said they would.

Only hang-wrangling came from those impatient people here.

This may be far left field here, but perhaps DTV held back on lighting the channel up to try and gage just how big a deal this was for their customers. By withholding it, they can see just how many people complain about 'DIRECTV not having SEC Network working yet'. Just my marketing background taking a guess.

For those of you recording, it's been really really cool the opening so far. It shows the advantage of having ESPN resources behind it. And I'm not even a SEC Alumni! :)

I'm thinking they (SEC) just made a desigin to wait till there were more people available, 6 pm, people are or are getting home from work and then they can run programming right into the Prime time.

I completely agree in regards to the ESPN choosing to launch at 6pm. My post was more referring to DTV waiting till 5:30p to make the channel tunable.

Hand-wringing maybe?
