ESPN revealed early Monday afternoon that the Longhorn Network will carry a third football game this season, the home contest against Iowa State on November 10th.
At least the broadcast will save the game for what could have been an 11 am CST start, as well as provide a little bit more incentive for other carriers to pick up the network.
Here is the remainder of the press release:
Longhorn Network will be the exclusive national distributor for the game, except within the state of Iowa and surrounding areas, where the matchup will be televised on six ABC affiliate stations: WOI in Des Moines, KCAU in Sioux City, KETV in Omaha, KCRG in Cedar Rapids, KAAL in Mason City-Austin-Rochester, and WQAD in Quad Cities.
Longhorn Network’s mobile app will also launch in November in advance of the Iowa State vs. Texas game. Fans can download the free app in the Apple App Store to get 24/7 access to the network, streaming live to mobile devices. Access to the Longhorn Network video stream is determined by the TV service provider and is currently available to Grande Communications and Verizon FiOS customers. The Longhorn Network App version 1.0 will include a live stream of LHN, GameCast (where available) and event alerts. Future releases of the Longhorn Network App will include more in-depth content for UT fans.
The network is now available on Grande Communications, A&T U-verse, Verizon FiOS, Cablevision, and the numerous small providers in the Houston area and south Texas. There has been no recent news regarding Time Warner Cable or DirecTV.
