LHN officially adds AT&T U-verse to carriers

David Ash AP

The Longhorn Network didn’t get much of a jump out of the gate last August. To the contrary, the Texas-ESPN, third-tier TV partnership  sort of  stumbled out for a moment, spun around once and promptly fell on its face.

But that was to be expected; the LHN was still figuring out how to use its legs since no program had ever launched a network of that magnitude before.

Verizon FiOS was the first big carrier to pick up the network, but on Friday it was officially announced that AT&T U-verse had joined the partnership as well. Orangebloods.com reported earlier this week that AT&T could be the next big carrier for the LHN, which is still without a deal with Time Warner Cable.

U-verse customers began tweeting photos early Friday morning that they had the LHN, though the announcement wasn’t official at the time.

Texas’ game against Wyoming will be broadcast on the LHN, with the Sept. 8 matchup against New Mexico also appearing on the third-tier network.

Still, the LHN isn’t available on Time Warner Cable or any major satellite provider.

    Uverse subscribers in TX and OK can get the LHN on almost all packages. Subscribers out of those previously mentioned states have to upgrade to top tier U450 to get the LHN. There is no additional charge going on the bill. There have been many fans of other teams (Aggys mostly) that have been moaning and whining (get used to it SEC) about dropping Uverse because of a channel they dont have to pay extra for. They are an extremely rational bunch, after all.

    College football fans are rarely rational, myself included. However, I would be more than happy with extra football on my tv for free.

    Nobody expects Time Warner to pick up the LHN anytime soon. TW still does not carry the NFL Network.

    Big deal. Now ESPN isn’t losing as Mitch money with a few more subscribers. DeLoss got his money and doesn’t care who can see it.
