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!

The funny part about all of this is that even if a deal with LHN were announced tomorrow with the holiday weekend and what could be a heavy demand for install most of these "converts" would not get to see the first two games anyway.

This guy actually thinks that they are going to send installers out to everybody tomorrow so they won't miss the game. On labor day weekend yet I'm sorry but I just can't believe....

 

[Please keep it courteous]

Until I see it show  up somewhere between channel 600 and 790 (1600-1790) I wouldn't put any faith in those posts.

Doubtful.  Those will be used for PPV college football games.

I'm seeing that as well (Off-Air, Press OK for Rental Info).

 

In my HIDE CHANELS, both of those are now checked (new), and I hide all sports.

I'm seeing College Football HD PPV 1 & 2.

 

No interest in this channel, but will be happy to check things for you in the Houston area. Smiley Happy

Please understand that since AT&T never formally announces channel additions prior to the actual appearance of them in the channel lineup, any and all claims that are posted that a channel is coming have to be treated as unsubstantiated.

 

While I'm sure there are many Texas Longhorn fans who are very happy that this channel has actually arrived, be aware that in the history of this forum, most of the predictions and claims of soon-to-be-here channels that have been posted have all been eventually revealed as false.  Thus the skepticism.  It's not personal, it's just probabilities.

"This is another example of how we continue to deliver the content customers want.”;

 

Please excuse me but I have a real problem with that statement. I have a feeling that Disney Jr, Hallmark, NHL, BBCAmerica, Beinsports and Pac 10 fanns will agree. I'm happy for Longhorn fans but this is not what I want. Up here in Ohio that channel will probably have a zero rating. Yes I definelly have a problem with that statement.

I think what finally made this possible was the split tiering.  TX residents get it on U200.   Others have to subscribe to U450.  That way Uverse has to pay ESPN for a much-reduced number of subscribers vs. it being available to everyone in the country.  Uverse may actually pick up one or two subscribers for U450 this way.

You are probably right. I believe I read that TWC has split tiering for the Pac 10 network.

I have a soon to be 4yr old and I'm a hockey fan so both Disney Jr and NHL network would please me.  Definately not a fan of the university down in Austin, but if OU is playing them in other sports besides football then I may venture over there to watch.  Glad one hurdle has been jumped, now to quite the left coasters and get the Pac-12 network(s).

Same here. Don't know if there's any other college teams which have their own separate network? Believe it's mainly leagues like the BTN (1650) channel here. Heck, the high schools here can barely get by financially, with lots of cutbacks, let alone building a $60M HS stadium in Allen, a suburb of Dallas. This story has been all over the national news and a 800 member HS band to boot! But the voters wanted it, willing to pay for the bond issue, so it's not being supported through an education/school levy.

 

Oh well, I remember visiting my mom years ago where she retired in NC and they would pull prime-time OTA programming to show local HS basketball!

 

Sorry for going a little off-topic.

Being that I grew up in Texas and Friday night football is ingrained into my brain, I didn't realize that local football (High School and/or college) would raise such ire.

 

I worked with an Aggie who lived and breathed the maroon & white.  I didn't get it but I knew to NEVER mention them and UT or Texas Tech in the same breath lest you get an entire lecture on the subject.

I'm pretty annoyed that Uverse decided to pick up this albatross of a network that destroyed the Big 12 and the best rivalry in college sports. I guess they figured people really wanted to watch a .500 team with no QB and follow it up with women's college volleyball and softball the rest of the year.
