Based on research by SNL Kagan, AL.com reports that the SEC Network is valued at more than four times what the Big Ten Network, and absolutely swamps the fledgling Pac-12 Networks.
The SEC Network is valued at $4.692 billion — a slight dip from its 2015 valuation of $4.77 billion — while the Big Ten Network is at $1.142 billion and Pac-12 Networks lags behind at $305 million. In 2015, SNL Kagan valued the Big Ten Network at $1.59 billion.
There are two Power Five conferences without a network at this time: the ACC and Big 12. The linear ACC Network, which like the SEC Network will be under the ESPN umbrella, is still scheduled for a 2019 launch, despite the parent company’s recent highly publicized layoffs. The Big 12 does not have similar plans for a network, likely complicated by the Longhorn Network, another ESPN property.
