SECSports.com Redesign and Regaining Copyright

Just in time for the upcoming foootball season, SECSports.com has been given a facelift. The site appears to be a joint venture between XOS Technologies and AmericanEagle.com. AmericanEagle.com did the layout of the site, while XOS will be involved in the digital media aspects of the site, including the SEC Digital Network.

The digital network's creation was part of the SEC's agreements with ESPN and where the SEC regained their copyright from those two entities. Viewing content could be free or cost a nominal fee. Folks who want that content available via offline means like a DVD or having the media permanent available on their hard drive are expected to pay an additional cost.

The Big Ten also regained copyright of their games in their latest TV contract and used it for their Big Ten Network's Big Ten Greatest Games series that airs on the network with older episodes now available on Hulu.com.
