    When the answer to the question is "Rosie O'Donnell," perhaps that question need never be asked.

    Just got an email from ESPN about calling TWC to demand the network. I take it that's not ironing itself out? booooooooooo

    Seems the providers(collectively) have decided to play hardball with ESPN. As long as one of them doesn't take it at the current price they don't have to compete with each other to get it out there first.

    Just called to request the channel and was told TWC and ESPN are still hammering out an agreement. "But at least they haven't said 'no'." If I end up without LHN on top of NFL Network then this aggression will not stand.

    TWC does not offer NFL network? Cable One did not for the first year, but added it last year.

    They are the only ones to announce as of yet. I think more will jump on soon now that we know a second football game is coming and the programming is fairly set.

    The analogy I have used in the past is:

    Imagine going to a car dealership and the sales guy is trying to sell you a new car for $40,000. He is asking a pretty penny but he can't tell you what kind of car it will be and what the options look like yet because it hasn't been determined.

    Now that some of the details about the network programming is getting set then it will help with negotiations.

    Yeah, but in this case you know more or less what the car is going to look like and you're guaranteed to get some hot pussy in the back of this car at least twice in the next 4 months, and your target audience is a bunch of $#@!ing credit card millionaires anyway...pull the $#@!ing trigger dude, it'll all work out...

    TWC on their Facebook page:

    Regarding the Longhorn Network, we have to reach an agreement with the programmer, and in this case it is ESPN. We have had discussions with ESPN about the Longhorn Network and at this time we do not have an agreement in place. It is our understanding that as of today, no other major video provider has committed to carriage of this ESPN channel either.

    Dish Network needs to get off their asses and get this fixed. I'm still under a 2 year contract because I signed up for a free HD upgrade, now I wish I'd paid for the upgrade so i could threaten to leave Dish if they didn't get LHN, right now it kind of rings hollow.

    Yeah, I wrote an email to DTV yesterday and they responded back with "After reviewing I am sorry to tell you that DirecTV has no plans to carry the Longhorn Network..." Good thing that I do not have a contract with them.

    The 2nd game will help. If I was ESPN I would be approaching UH, SMU, UTEP, and Rice about appearance fees for their blacked out games in CUSA. There are supposedly only 20 games (out of 49 per season) on CUSA's contract. Getting additional leverage in Dallas and Houston would be aided by getting this content.

    without a doubt it will be streamed, but this situation is pissing me off.

    I guess I'm naive but I thought ESPN and Belmont would have lined up all the major providers to announce around the same time that it would be carried.

    A friend of mine who is connected to the athletic department at Rice said this exact thing - that Rice originally approached Texas/IMG/ESPN about some of the excess bandwidth and that some of the other CUSA schools in Texas were doing the same thing. Granted, I had this conversation with my friend 6 months ago and nothing has happened yet, so maybe it's so late now that it's not going to happen this season.

    One thing I wonder about is whether the name "Longhorn Network" turned them off. Aggy Butthurtedness is certainly a unique and overwrought thing, but it still might be at least a little humiliating for fans of other schools to have their games televised on Big Brother's own network.

    Considering that Entouch is not a "major provider" this still may be the case... My experience is that Entouch is a crappy little local outfit that buys monopolies in new developments in Fort Bend County (like the one I used to live in) and then overcharges Indian and Chinese immigrants for telephone service.

    That's exactly what they are. My BIL in Katy has Entouch and that's his only option in his development. Don't think there any Indian or Chinese immigrants there, though.

    Im willing to bet that TW is one of the last people to get it if they do at all. Seems like TW and ESPN hate eachother. I cant even get $#@!ing ESPN on my xbox because TW refuses to set up a deal. Its been like this for a $#@!ing year now.

    The company is filled with ignorant tools.

    ESPN and LHN will make sure it is on TV for most viewers, including DirecTV. Of course, it will most likely be via PPV, but it'll be on TV.

    Barry Horn's column in today's DMN mentions that he expects Direct TV to be first with others to follow. I hope he is right...

    I am moving, so I plan on having a conversation with Direct TV tomorrow. I plan to push the LHN for nothing else to make sure Direct TV gives me a lot of free stuff.

    I have Grande and was flipping channels today and on the ANNOUNCEMENTS channel they were talking about a change happening on 08/26 involving ESPN classic moving to a different channel number and sports packages, but didn't mention LHN specifically....good news?????

    That would seem to be the case since LHN launches 8/26.

    For what it is worth, I went ahead and took the bait and called TWC. The operator was pretty nice and said that a lot of people had been calling and he wanted it himself. I got the same line that negotiations were ongoing. He told me that he would send a survey call after we hung up and that at the end I could leave a recorded message that I wanted LHN. He also suggested that I do so as all the messages were reviewed.

    I do. The service is usually fine and the price is good. But I've been out of contract for a while, and if TW doesn't get LHN by Rice and another carrier in the area does, I'll switch over that.

    On TWC's Facebook page: "Regarding the Longhorn Network, we have to reach an agreement with the programmer, and in this case it is ESPN. We have had discussions with ESPN about the Longhorn Network and at this time we do not have an agreement in place. It is our understanding that as of today, no other major video provider has committed to carriage of this ESPN channel either."

    That doesn't sound promising but at least they're getting the message.

    888-844-1983. Keep driving them nuts.

    So basically.. they arent going to carry it unless someone else does it first. Great job TW. Way to be proactive.

    Sports Business Journal is saying that Grande and Verizon Fios will be carrying LHN in Austin starting 8/26. These are big enough carriers to start the domino effect at least in the Austin market.

    I love how you won't even venture to rank #1, yet you'll give a ranking to #3 and #4.

    The question for me is whether TW will get its $#@! together by 9/3. It would be classic TW for them to wait until 9/1 or 9/2 to ink something, run into technical problems, and have everything up and running by 9/4.

    Just days away from its Friday launch, ESPN’s Longhorn Network has cut several deals with small distributors in the state and is counting on several more this week. Late last week, ESPN executives were in final negotiations with Verizon and Grande Communications. While at deadline...
