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

The channel, which launches on 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 a total of 46 million households nationally, with other negotiations continuing.

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