AT&T adds more TVE options for Longhorn Network
AT&T and ESPN announced that AT&T subscribers can now access the Longhorn Network’s live video content online and on their iPhone and iPod touch devices.
AT&T customers that have the Longhorn Network as part of their video package can authenticate themselves with their member IDs and passwords. The Longhorn Network, which covers University of Texas sports, is accessible on multi-screens via a free app in the iTunes store, or on the Longhorn Network’s web portal.
“We are excited to offer our AT&T U-verse customers access to Longhorn Network virtually wherever – and whenever – they like, on the screen that they choose,” said Aaron Slator, president of content and advertising sales, AT&T.
The Disney-owned Longhorn Network also has distribution deals in place with Charter Communications, Grande Communications, Cox Communications, Google Fiber and Verizon, among others. Time Warner Cable and Comcast currently don’t carry the Longhorn Network’s programming.
ESPN launched the Longhorn Network in 2011 after reaching a 20-year, $300 million deal with the University of Texas.
