According to Outkick the Coverage’s Clay Travis, DirecTV has no plans to carry the SEC network and have begun sending out emails to customers to inform them:
DirecTV is emailing SEC fans who have requested @SECNetwork that they "have no current plans to carry the SEC Network." Be forewarned.

I give it exactly one week before they change their minds. There will be a lot of angry SEC fans coming after them very soon. I don’t think DirecTV has any idea what it will be like if SEC fans start missing games.
