Longhorn Network - Just say 'No'

I greatly appreciate the value provided by AT&T in bundling tv/wireless/internet services.  Similarly, the bundling of channels allows customers to access a variety of programming at substantial savings.

 

However, occasionally, programming comes along that is so expensive and directed at such a narrow, niche market that it deserves to be left off of the programming options or ordered solely as an 'a la carte' option.  If the reports about the price tag  to cable providers  to offer the 'longhorn network' (by ESPN) are accurate, the only way it could be added to current bundled programming packages is at substantial cost to MANY people who have no interest in the programming. 

 

Please AT&T, keep prices low, by either not offering or charging ONLY those who desire this programming option.

 

Thanks!

I will not continue my service with ATT U-verse when I have to subsidize the athletic department at Texas.  If someone wants that service and is willing to pay for it, then they should be able to add it separately.  But someone that does not want the service should not be forced by ATT to pay for it.

 

I am not willing to continue my U-verse service even if ATT reduces my monthly bill by the 40 cents per month they have to pay to Teesipper Network.

 

If this service is not removed by the end of November, then I have no choice but to find a replacement for U-verse.

I'm a SOONER fan and here's a suggestion, don't watch it.  It's only on U450 outside of Texas and U200 in Texas.  ANY new network is always a good thing.

Why don't we have a bake sale, and sell cookies for 40 cents each. We can collect the money, and send it to Not a Teesipper to cover his expense for the Longhorn Network. If we sell 12 cookies, Not a Teesipper is covered for the next year.

 

Not a Teesipper, I hope you are not a one and done one post wonder, and reply to my suggestion.
