How Much Walt Disney Company’s ESPN Could Make From SEC Network

by TheStreet 1:03 mins

Disney’s ESPN is set to launch SEC Network Thursday evening, its dedicated channel for collegiate sports union, The Southeastern Conference. ESPN, the number-one U.S. sports network, is charging a premium for the privilege. Average carrier fees of around $1.40 per subscriber a month is 40% higher than Fox’s college sports channel, Big Ten Network. SEC Network could generate a total $770 million within the first year, according to Barclays forecasts. With an estimated 50:50 split between Disney and the SEC schools, that equates to nearly $270 million in profits for ESPN, around 12% of the unit's total income over 2013.
