With 2 days to go for the launch of the Longhorn Network, I thought I would look up who was carrying it. Jokes on me, you, Austinites, Texans, sport fans, the NCAA, the Texas Aggies, the BIg 12 and everyone else.
According to the Longhorn network web site, no big pay services are carrying it. Like a tree falling in an empty forest, is it a network if no one can watch it?
The web site has a schedule of shows, for what purpose? no one can watch them. Maybe this is some e-mail scam,
Please MR X our Broadcasting license are being held up by the Nigerian sports federation if you could just send us 5000 dollars US we could purchase licenses to put our network on the TV, we would then make mounds of cash on advertisements with which we can repay you a hundred fold.
Maybe it's some kind of Bernie Madoff type Ponzi Scheme. Put in $10,000 and we will pay you $100,000* in one Year.
Then it could always be the faithful drug money laundering operations for a world wide drug cartel.
The one good thing is the launch is so big it covers the entire US, you will not be able to watch the Longhorn Network any where or at any time you want.
