Will Directv pick up the Longhorn Network by Friday when it launches? Also, will it be launched in HD? It seems like all the cable and satellite providers have waiting way too long to negotiate and we might not get to see the Rice game. Texas fans would go bonkers if they don't see that. Directv better hurry their a** up.


Yes it will be in HD. I honestly don't see many, if any, picking up this channel. ESPN's demands for the channel are too high. Believe it's somewhere around 40 cents a subscriber. Actually I can see Austin's cable company picking it up last minute but that's it.

Well at 40 a sub basic in the longhorns area and sports pack out side of it may work.

Yeah, a game against Rice which they will win by at least six touchdowns. Then what?

At this point, ESPN better pay D* to carry the lhn, or allow Gameplan and Full Court HD as a D* exclusive.

I believe they are asking for it to be on a basic package in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Sports tiers outside those regions. Just don't see most providers doing that at over 40 cents a sub. Could be wrong though.

According to Matt Sarz website:

"•Big Ten - Games that appear on ABC may be shown in outer markets on ESPN/ESPN2. Starting in 2011, both games in a reverse mirror situation should be available to all of the country in HD."

Yes they will. They have been wanting them and gameplan in HD for a while now. So as long as ESPN provides the feed DirecTV will have them. And ESPN is going to provide them this year so DirecTV will have them. :)

All part time HD channels with the exception of Sunday Ticket are appended with a -1 so I would expect the same for ESPN HD alternates.

We are 5 days away from the debut and I think this network already says bust on it unless a miracle comes which I doubt so Texas fans be prepared to listen to the radio for those two LHN games or hope they are streamed somewhere because I feel noones gonna want to buy into this networks concept.

I wonder if UT still gets paid?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
