AT&T picks up Longhorn Network
Today, AT&T announced that it will carry the Longhorn Network.
I’m thrilled that the Longhorn Network is now more widely available to the UT family. The high-quality programs – showcasing both athletics and the life of the greater university – will give fans and the general public an exciting new window on UT. AT&T has been a long-standing friend of the University in many ways, and we’re delighted that they will be joining our distribution network. Over the past year, we kept our focus on the long term and trusted our great partners at ESPN. Now we can begin to realize the full potential of this powerful new communication channel.
I also want to thank all the providers who have been carrying the Longhorn Network throughout the past year, including Verizon FiOS TV, Grande Communications, Consolidated Communications, En-Touch Systems, E-Tex Communications, Bay City Cablevision, Mid-Coast Cablevision, and Texas Mid-Gulf Cablevision.
While we realize this won’t help all fans immediately, it is a big breakthrough that will encourage other major distributors to carry the network.
Finally, let’s wish the Horns a great season opener against Wyoming tomorrow night.
Hook ’em Horns!
