    I'm moving into a complex that lets me use either AT&T U-Verse or Grande. I assume Grande will have LHN before U-Verse?

    You should be able to get that for free if you've been a customer for a least a year. Sports pack is probably one of the easiest subs to get added for free (or receive credits).

    FYI from SA Express News. This high school stuff could have done something for demand in Texas.

    Coverage and insight from Austin.
    Longhorn Network high school plans on hold again
    Posted on 08/22/2011 by Mike Finger
    AUSTIN — Four days after announcing plans to show high school football highlights as part of its news coverage, the Longhorn Network has hit another snag.

    An NCAA spokesman said Monday after a summit meeting on youth sports coverage that “nothing has changed” regarding high school content on university- and conference-affiliated networks. The NCAA’s board of directors is expected to issue a final ruling on the topic in six to nine months, but in the meantime, the ban on youth sports content stands.

    “Youth programming, which would include highlights, is not allowed,” the NCAA’s Erik Christianson wrote in an email to the San Antonio Express-News.

    Last week, an ESPN spokesman said highlights “in the context of news coverage” were “obviously a completely separate matter, and we plan to report on high school athletics in a way that is relevant to the audience.”

    But in Monday’s meeting of representatives from several conference and institutional networks, including UT and LHN, they did not receive the go-ahead to do so.

    Previously, LHN had plans to broadcast more than a dozen live high school games before the NCAA issued a ruling earlier this month placing a moratorium on such content.

    Since this thread is tl;dr, I only want to know: I have comcast in houston. But I don't have a box, it is included in my rent and I get all the SD channels. Am I wrong in assuming that I won't be getting the network?

    Not necessarily, but the odds aren't really in your favor. Maybe 60-40 against. From what it sounds like above and elsewhere, screw in the wall Grande cable for me in Austin will have it. There's a good chance H town will as well

    Let's see you do something about it, Erik. You guys have always had such a great time fighting against the evolution of television.

    All of this dis-info and not knowing who has what is frustrating as the game is less than two weeks away. I know for a fact here in Houston, if you have ATT-UVerse with the U200 package, you'll get LHN at no add'l charge.

    That's a form letter from DirecTV. If you write them with any complaint, 3/4 of the letter is the same every time. If you are an old customer they say, "I see you are a loyal customer.... ya ya ya" and if you are a new customer they say, "I see you are a new customer, welcome! ya ya ya", and then everything else is the same. You can write them and ask them to provide you with a ferret to put in your pants while you're watching Oxygen and they'll send you that same letter.

    The part in the middle is the creative part, but, as someone already said, the "no plans at this time" is going to be the standard response from any cable provider until the channel lights up.

    That video is $#@!ing awesome.

    I said it before, but "The Season" is going to be the tits. I cant wait to see all the behind the scenes stuff from 05'. If I remember correctly, our motto that year was "Take Dead Aim". If you watch that clip, it shows Mack in the locker room with a confidence and swagger that I have rarely seen out of him. He and the coaches knew that the 05' team was special. No one was beating around the bush about the idea of Texas winning it all. The coaches were direct and made sure everyone knew that they weren't going to settle for anything less but a National Championship. They definately bought into "Take Dead Aim".

    That is the kind of mentality I wish all of our teams would have.. but that is unrealistic. Im not even sure that the 09' team had that same amount of swagger that 05' did.

    I wasnt sure what the LHN would be exactly.. but after watching the "show line-up", its going to be the ultimate fan-service. Its taking every facet about Texas and putting it in a documentary/Friday Night Lights fashion with Explosions In The Sky (same music as FNL) as the score.

    It cannot be better than that. I can definitely handle another 19 years of shows like those.

    Definitely.

    So I have ATT UVerse in Dallas and I just called and spoke with a CSR and asked if they were going to carry the LHN. After putting me on hold to speak with the "network team" she finally returned to tell me that UVerse had "extended a contract to carry the network but it was not accepted, and that her supervisor advised her that unfortunatly they did not see the LHN being offered this year". But on the good side she offered to no longer charge me for HD and take $7 off my internet monthly charge and another $5 off my phone service to stay a Uverse cutomer. So i took it while i search for another provider...

    I'm so glad the CSR has such intimate knowledge of AT&T's negotiating process.

    Yeah, in the mother$#@! city the Longhorns are located in, almost all the city can only get TW cable (or ATT DSL). FIOS and Grande and $#@! are available for almost no one. I know because, when I lived in Austin (for seven years, up until Spring 2010), I tried my damndest to get something else.

    The NCAA needs to tell the LHN that they either can or can't have high school games, highlights, news shows, etc. That is the sticking point right now. Without the HS programming, the providers can tell ESPN to shove it with their asking price. With it, they will have to suck it up and pay ESPN what they want.

    I wouldn't.

    But I'll watch the hell out of old football games, current football games, current baseball games and then any documentaries they do about old football and baseball players.

    Anything else they put on the network will get a pass from me.

    It would depend on the game and what else I had going on. I'd like to see Jonathan Gray in a game. If my old high school was on, especially if it was a rivalry, I'd like to see that too. Can you imagine if Reggie McNeal and Vince Young had met in a televised game their senior years in high school? That would have been great to watch.

    That said, I'll still watch the $#@! out of the channel.

    Computer-generated Canned Response Via Email(Florante O(racle). - IP Address - 100.16.5784) - 08/22/2011 03:37 PM
    Dear Mr. 210816horn,

    Thanks for writing. I see that you're one of our loyal customers and we appreciate the opportunity to take money from you regularly. It's hard for me to understand your concern about the availability of the Longhorn Network channel on DIRECTV, as I am a BC "fan" and try myself to avoid watching them play at all costs. Your wallet, however, is important to us so I want you to read this email and come away thinking that we will actually address your concern. We will spend just enough energy in our "efforts" to keep your dollars coming our way.

    Please be advised that we are being greedy and want a piece of the take, so we can't currently come to a consensus with ESPN. I have, however, forwarded your comments to my trash folder, where all suggestions, inquiries and complaints from our most important customers go. While DIRECTV Management will not follow up individually with any customer, rest assured that they care little about your UT fandom, and are instead focused on their bottom line and will ultimately do what is in the best economic interests of DIRECTV.

    As a reminder, you can stop pestering us, as we clearly stated in the fine print of the 26th page of your contract that, when we add new channels, we release a statement to the press, so keep refreshing the directv.com website and leave us alone.

    On a related money-making note, I see that you may be eligible for a special offer in which we might be able to extort more money from you. This offer is available for a limited time that will last until we determine it won't, and only by calling us at 1-800-531-5000 or by reaching out with your money in any other way. Please call us at your convenience between 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM to see what special offer is best for you.

    Thanks again for writing Mr. 210816horn. We respect our time, hence the canned response, and I appreciate that you've given us the opportunity to have our expensive computer system serve you.

    Sincerely,

    Florante O(racle). IP Address: 100.16.5784
    DIRECTV Customer Service

    P. S. Football season is here! Just because you can't have the LHN, you can still pay us money to catch up to 14 games every week this fall with NFL SUNDAY TICKET, now available at directv.com/nfl.

    I'd be very inclined to watch a 30 minute show made up of all the weekly highlights of Texas' recruits and targets. As to why we're pushing it, we don't get to make those decisions, but I think ESPN continues to push it for some kind of leverage with the carriers, even if both parties know it's not at all likely that it will be allowed.

    Would I watch full games? Some of them. For example, I'd have watched Brandon Williams or Malcolm Brown last year, and I'd watch Trey Williams or Jonathan Gray play this year. As for the highlights, my understanding is that the highlights would be in some sort of a news/sportscenter format focusing on sports in the state of Texas. I'd watch that sort of a program from time to time, and if the program had a clip of Jonathan Gray running the length of the field for a TD on Friday night, I'd watch that, too.

    The mysterious "source" of my facts is simply ATT-UVerse customer service. It was as simple as calling ATT with our account number and requesting LHN...no charge and I'll see the Rice game on the 3rd...not sure of the other carriers...neg rep? Please...

    Chill y'all.

    NetworkProviderAttorney: "Ok Network Provider, when you are contacted by your customers, you tell them, that you offered a contract, that ESPN did not accept and that the likelihood of having the LHN this year was unlikely, at best. This will increase our negotiating posture to ESPN and will send a message that you are prepared to proceed along without it. Under no circumstance, express optimism that it will be put in place until the signature are dry on the contract. Now, pay me my $750 per hour."

    Network: "uh.. ok."

    Ahh ok. I read that as the install would have cost you $268.
