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!

Are you serious?  If you are having trouble forking over $4/yr then maybe you should prioritize your spending.  I pay more than that on late fees.  Pulling the 500% argument is stretching it at best.  I'll gladly pay a whopping $10/yr to get the OU, OSU, or ORU network on board if that makes you feel better in exchange for the LHN.  I'd pay for A&M to have a channel too, but none of the networks want to strike a deal with A&M.  It doesn't matter if the Big 10 carries a whole conference.  I don't watch Big 10 games, and I was never given an option to include or exclude it from my programming.

Maybe the providers should start offering a true a la carte option that way some folks can get more programming that is suited to their personal tastes rather than this "ram it down your throat" option. I would love to watch the LHN, but until U-verse plays ball I'm left to watching the game at the bar.  Boo!  In all honesty, I don't think the LHN advantage is that great in comparison to other schools.  A&M was making a stink about nothing.  With all the supposed best talent in the state, Texas still consistently lost to OU and KState in football.  Good athletes help, but it's really all about coaching.

This has become the most tiresome thread ever!

 

Is there a single argument, pro or con, that has not been voiced ad nauseum?

 

Mods, for heaven's sake put an end to this one and kill any new variations.

One day you wil finally wake up and realize that you probably watch 20-30 channels on average per month. That means that there are TONS of channels that are being "forced down your throat." But if all of those other channels were not there, you would be complaining that your bill was too high. Cable companies are about content. Niche or not. I dont watch soccer, and I dont speak spanish. Should I come on here and bash spanish speaking americans and soccer lovers because I am "supporting soccer and spanish speakers" by paying a little extra on my bill? I would be banned for hate speech if I came on here and said some of the things some of you are saying. RELAX everyone and enjoy 100's of channels you pay for, but dont watch. 

 


Thank you.  A voice of reason from a new poster. KUDOS to you.  I bleed Crimson and Cream, but I'm all for the LHN.  I may actually get to see my Sooners play UT in other sports besides Football and Basketball.

This sounds like a done deal to me.

 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M has notified the Big 12 it will withdraw from the conference, according to a newspaper report.

You are correct.  The Big 12 Conference agreed to allow Texas to create their own network last summer as part of the agreement that kept the Big 12 Conference together.  The 10 remaining schools also signed an agreement that they would remain in the Big 12 Conference for the next 10 years.  I think some of you may be aware of the fact that Texas A&M is now trying to get out of that agreement and move to the SEC.

I will just throw my two cents in...not that anyone at ATT cares as my conversation with customer service made clear this morning.  If they do not pick up the Longhorn Network before the Rice game on Saturday, then I will definitely take my $300 bill (and my $200 cell phone bill which I was thinking of moving to ATT) and go elsewhere.  Even if no one picks it up, I will move because ATT's customer service is and has always been horrible.

 

I have probably hundreds of channels that I could care less about and do not ever watch but I'm sure I'm paying carriage for them.  I haven't complained about that and now I can't get one more channel added.  I knew two years ago moving to ATT was a mistake but I thought I would give them a chance based on that 6 month intro package.  Should have moved when my year was up but have been just lazy.  Now I have a real reason to do it.

I'm not following your logic.  If you think AT&T Customer Service is horrible, why would you stay if the Longhorn Network is added by September 3rd, but leave if it is added after September 3rd?  It seems to me that you should already have left U-verse, and that what channels are carried would not be a factor.

In that case, see ya! The only TV provider that has picked up the longhorn network so far is Verizon FIOS and AT&T and Virizion aren't in competing markets. Have fun with Comcast/TWC/Dish/Direct TV, whose customer service is regarded as worse than U-Verse's.

Starting new threads won't make it come any faster. In fact, all that does is annoy everyone.

The "new thread" button is fragile. If you hit it too many times, it could break.

You can take the shorthorn network and stick it somewhere besides my service please.  I don't plan on paying for it and if it shows up then that part of my service that carries it will be downsized.

I don't  want the LHN added to my service.  If it is added I will drop every single movie channel to more than compensate for the charge or I will change carriers all together.

Please let me know when you begin carrying the lamehorn network so I can promptly drop U-verse.  If the Dirty Orange Crowd wants it, fine for them; let them subscribe. But DO NOT ask me to support this garbage.

Heaven Forbid if ATT ever would carry Longhorn Network . But if they did made the wrong decision, will it hopefully only be made available as an RSN network but not an national network.

As a passionate St. Louis Cardinal fan, I am very disgusted that ATT U-Verse is carrying WGN which telecasts many Chicago Cubs games. I should not have to pay one cent for a channel that telecasts a team I am very much against.

 

In addition, ESPN, the Saturday Fox Game of the Week, and the MLB Network have telecast Cub games on occasion. Again, I do not want to pay even one cent for channels that carry this disgusting baseball team.

 

Unless ATT U-Verse drops WGN, ESPN and ESPN 2, my local Fox station, and the MLB Network, I may need to change providers.

I see your Texas Rangers logo. Suppose ATT notified you of its intent to broadcast the NYY YES network and charge you extra each month for it. I use the Yankees as an example because I don't know who the Rangers most hated rival actually is.

 

The problem is not the network itself. I doubt I'll ever watch it. Sounds pretty lame from what I'v heard.  It's the principle of being forced to support this endeavor financially. If it comes to that, there are other options to U-verse and I will explore them. Not one dime of mine will go to support ut.  If that's childish, so be it.

The problem is not the network itself. I doubt I'll ever watch it. Sounds pretty lame from what I'v heard.  It's the principle of being forced to support this endeavor financially. If it comes to that, there are other options to U-verse and I will explore them. Not one dime of mine will go to support ut.  If that's childish, so be it.

Well, that actually happens now.  I receive YES as part of my HD Premium Package.  Thus, the cost of this network is included in my monthly fees.  I have no problem with it.   I do hate the Yankees, and I would only watch a Yankees game hoping that they lose.

 

There are lots of channels included in my subscription that I don't want, don't watch and don't like.  Yet the cost for the channels is included in my monthly fees.  Thus, I help to support those channels.  So what, that is how it works with a paid TV service.  You pay for a package of channels.  You don't get to pick and chose what channels you want to include in your package.  My remote is in great working order, and I know how to not tune to those channels that I do not wish to view.

 

Childish?  Well, I won't comment on that.  I will let others reading your comments come to their own conclusion.

I too will drop AT&T Uverse and all of the other AT&T services including my DSL and cell phone service if the Longhorn Network is added to my Uverse package.

When will we get the Longhorn Network?  Please do not make me change cable providers in order to follow my Longhorns!  You have a state full of Longhorn Fans. What are you thinking? Hurry up and get on-board!

Sorry I didn't see existing forum either.  I do not spend much time living on the internet learning forum etiquette.  I have better things to do.
