SCSouth (formerly SportsChannel South) is a regional sports network that airs sports programming in the Southern United States. It's part of the larger SportsChannel group of regional sports networks. The network carries professional & collegiate sports coverage from across the region, along with other sporting events & programming from SC

HistoryEdit

SCSouth was launched in 1994 as SportsChannel South. In 2003, it became SCSouth.

SCSouth formerly produced the SCSouth Sports Report in their Midtown Atlanta studios, when the "regional sports reports" were a prime focus of the collective SC networks. Other SC networks also received their local sports reports from the Atlanta studios, often with the same hosts. The Southern Sports Report was discontinued in 2004 & SCSouth produced a similar program, Around The South, that focuses on sports stories in & across the region. It has been replaced by SCSouth SportsCenter

Viewing areaEdit

The viewing area includes Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina & Tennessee. It's by far, the largest SC network by area & viewership. As such, the feed is often broken down into several sub-regional feeds for the purposes of adhering to the "home turf" rules belonging to the various professional leagues. For example, Memphis Grizzlies & Nashville Predators games are only seen in Tennessee, most of Kentucky, northern Mississippi & northern Alabama, while Charlotte Bobcats games are only seen in North Carolina. Neither are seen in the remaining portions of SCSouth's coverage area, though Predators games occasionally re-air in North Carolina.

In October of 2008, SportsChannel decided to break up SCSouth into 3 separate feeds to offer more localized coverage to subscribers, dubbed SC-Carolinas & SCTennessee. SC bills these feeds as separate networks from the main SCSouth feed, which only serves Georgia & most of Alabama, Kentucky & Mississippi. SCSouth has 2 overflow feeds on DirecTV, to avoid additional coverage conflicts

SC-CarolinasEdit

SC-Carolinas serves 4 million people in North & South Carolina. It produces games of the Charlotte Bobcats (NBA) & the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL). It also features Atlantic Coast Conference basketball & non-revenue sports. The Bobcats are available in limited areas of North & South Carolina that are in close proximity to Charlotte

SCTennesseeEdit

SCTennessee serves 2 million people in Tennessee, northern Alabama & northeastern Mississippi. It produces games of the Memphis Grizzlies (NBA) & the Nashville Predators (NHL). It also carries the Cincinnati Reds (MLB) (via SCOhio), the St. Louis Cardinals (MLB) (via SCMidwest) & Southeastern Conference sports
