I dont currently see any SEC overflow channels. I do see the BTN overflow(alternate) channels. I wonder where the SEC overflow channels are at? I have the choice package but I'm sure that doesnt matter. I've used the SEC overflow channels during CFB season for years. Thanx for any help.

Maybe they do. I currently see games showing up on the onscreen guide for all other channels on Sept 1 but there is no SEC alternate in the guide for that day and there are games that will be on SEC alternate channel on Sept 1.

I also noticed the ESPN alternates are gone. They were right after ESPN2.

Were BTN 610.3 & 610.4 EVER used? My cable provider has two BTN alts, and I don't think I remember ever seeing the second alt get used. I'm sure it has happened, but I've just seen the rare uses of the first alt for when two Big Ten football games have the same kickoff time. I think they only do that for the early 11/12 kickoffs, I don't remember seeing two games scheduled for 2:30/3:30 kickoff.

NBCSN alt - They used to use this during hockey season, showing an alternate game for people in the markets the main game was from (which was being shown locally by an RSN) but I do not recall it being used last year at all.

NHL alt - DirecTV always takes down the NHL alt during not hockey season and MLB alt during not baseball season.

SEC alt. 611-1. Shows up in my guide.

ESPN alts. These were only used for the "reverse mirror" when ESPN would show a Big 10 game regionally in places ABC did not. Are they still doing that?

ESPN (the 700s channels) these showed minor games, mostly G5 and I-AA, from ESPN3. Is this now behind the ESPN+ paywall?

For the BTN, if needed, more will pop in.
Remember, the BTN is Not the network that most of the big games are on. Its more designed so the other sports get shown qnd some of the lower teams play on it regularly .... your top teams will be on Fox or ABC or ESPN ....
All BT teams are obligated to have 2 games a year on the BTN ....

For the Buckeyes, the Rutgers game will be on BTN and if i were to guess, probably Maryland .... the TV portion isnt completed yet.

They will show up closer to game day.

The NFL ST is the same way, they don't show up till somewhere during the week coming up to game time.
