Beginning in January the Longhorn Network will be available the more than 20 million customers of DirecTV.

ESPN's parent company - Disney - has sealed a multi-year pact with the satellite carrier for all of its channels. The key to the deal is that both companies are interested in ensuring in-home and out-of-home delivery and video on demand. That means you will be able to get the LHN on various digital video platforms though WatchESPN.
