Grande Communications to Carry Longhorn Network

Just in time for the Texas Longhorns’ opener with the Rice Owls, Grande Communications announced Friday it will carry the Longhorn Network.

Grande Communications serves the Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, Midland/Odessa, Waco, Corpus Christi and Dallas markets.

“As a Texas-based company, Grande understands the passion our customers have for Texas sports,” said Matt Murphy, president of Grande Communications. “We are pleased and very excited to make Longhorn Network available as part of our cable television offerings.”

The Longhorn Network is now available to customers of Grande Communications, Consolidated Communications, Bay City Cablevision, Mid-Coast Cablevision, Texas Mid-Gulf Cablevision, En-Touch Systems, E-Tex Communications, and nationally on Verizon FiOS.

Negotiations are ongoing with AT&T, Time Warner, Dish, and DirecTV, ESPN officials said, but it’s unclear whether any of those major carriers will add the Longhorn Network in time for the Rice game.
