New SEC and XOS Sports Channels Give PS3 Owners Pre- and Post-Game Coverage and Classic Footage

on January 10, 2012 7:00 PM

It may be too late to watch Alabama meticulously take the BCS championship over LSU, but starting today PS3 owners will have access to games transmitted over the SEC Digital Network and XOS College Sports feeds. Live feeds aren’t provided by the service, but it’s a start, isn’t it?

The applications are available for download immediately on the PlayStation Store and provide pre-game analysis and post-game highlights courtesy of the XOS network. Full games can be purchased the day after they air and users can buy footage and documentaries dating back to the ’50s. Both apps are free, but it seems to me that providing pre- and post-game content without airing the competitions that day almost seems like you’re getting a sandwich but have to wait 24 hours after you’re given the bread before you’re allowed anything else.
