BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Comcast Cable has reached a deal with ESPN to carry the SEC Network.

The network, which launches Aug. 14, was already set to be carried on cable and satellite providers like DISH Network, Cox Communications and AT&T U-Verse.

The addition of the nation’s largest cable provider announced Friday means the SEC Network will be available in at least 46 million households nationally.

The SEC Network will carry at least 45 football games this season.
