Also, from the press release:

Verizon FiOS and Grande Communications Team Up with Longhorn Network for All-Access Weekend
Longhorn Network Broadband Simulcast Available Nationwide November 11-13

(Austin, TX) – Beginning Friday, Nov. 11 at 9.a.m. CT and running through midnight Sunday, Nov. 13, a broadband simulcast of Longhorn Network - the 24/7 channel dedicated to University of Texas athletics - will be available to fans nationwide as part of All-Access Weekend presented by Grande Communications and Verizon FiOS. During this time, fans with a broadband connection, regardless of their provider, can visit to enjoy three days of UT athletics programming.

All-Access Weekend coincides with several high profile UT sporting events, including men’s and women’s basketball season tip offs and a Big 12 matchup of the school’s No. 8-ranked women’s volleyball team. Additionally, fans will see the network’s content-rich studio and original programming such as Longhorn Extra, re-airs of Game Plan with Mack Brown and Texas All-Access, as well as Texas GameDay’s pre-game women’s basketball show and exclusive pre- and post-game and halftime football shows.

We also got a Rick Barnes quote:

"We urge all Texas Basketball fans, and really college basketball fans in general, to call your cable provider and ask that they carry Longhorn Network. Their behind-the-scenes look at our program should help our fans get to know our players and their individual personalities. More important, it will give everyone a much better understanding of what it means to be a part of the Texas Basketball program. It should provide great insight into how hard our guys work, both on and off the court, and the pride they have in representing The University of Texas."


"The product is A-rate. It's worth seeing," said Chris Plonsky, women's athletics director and senior associate athletics director for external services. "The quality is astounding."

I'm sold!

With the football games already aired, I have to think the MSO negotiations are not going as well as Bellmont might have wished. I still think they've made the right moves. Also, I'm on record, I'll pay for it. Let's get it done, one way or the other.

Also, lots of glossy pictures here.
