Longhorn Network adds major provider in AT&T

The Longhorn Network has added a major television provider just

in time for its second season of Texas football.

AT&T Inc. said Friday it was carrying the network with its

U-verse TV service. The company said customers would have the

network in time for Saturday night’s season opener against

Wyoming.

The Longhorn Network is also carrying the Longhorns’ second game

Sept. 8 at home against New Mexico. It isn’t known whether the

network will get more games this season.

AT&T said the network would be available on computers and

mobile devices at a later date.

Financial terms of AT&T’s deal weren’t disclosed. The

Longhorn Network is a 20-year, $300 million partnership between

ESPN and Texas athletics.
