Current DISH customers who subscribe to the America’s Top 120+ package and above will receive both SEC Network and Longhorn Network at no additional cost.

“Saturday is the new Sunday and DISH is proud to deliver the best in college sports with SEC Network, Pac-12 Networks, Big Ten Network and Longhorn Network,” said Joseph P.

We cannot wait for kickoff.”

To celebrate the upcoming football season, new DISH customers who subscribe to the America’s Top 120+ and above package by October 21, 2014, will also receive the Multi-Sport package included through the end of the year.
