DIRECTV and ESPN Enter into an Agreement for DIRECTV to Provide the New SEC Network

DIRECTV and ESPN have entered into an agreement for DIRECTV to provide the new SEC Network to fans and followers of the Southeastern Conference when the network launches Aug. 14. The first college football game on the new network will air Aug. 28 featuring #20 Texas A&M vs. #9 South Carolina. The depth of SEC competition and the quality ESPN brings to game production and complementary programming makes SEC Network a valuable addition to its sports programming lineup. The agreement with DIRECTV continues to push the SEC Network towards one of the most successful network launches when it debuts on August 14, 2014. The SEC Network will deliver at least 45 exclusive SEC football games this season. Recently released pre-season polls rank seven SEC teams in the college football preseason top 25, ensuring consistently close, competitive match-ups on SEC Network. The network will also serve as an all-access pass to nationally competitive events, news and information, expert analysis, classic games and in-depth features on the most storied conference in college athletics.

Cash paid for property and equipment was $255 million compared to $193 million a year ago. The company continues to generate strong free cash flow as it increased 24% to $652 million in the quarter, driven by higher OPBDA, lower set-top box cost at DIRECTV U.S. and the timing of set-top box purchases at Latin America.

This excludes the Venezuela devaluation charges in first quarter Of 2013 and 2014. The company also continues to expect free cash flow growth to increase approximately 10% over 2013 levels as the negative impact from the Venezuela devaluation is anticipated to be offset by lower full year CapEx spending at both the U.S. and Latin America. The company expects to generate $1 billion of revenue in 2014.
