The Longhorn Network now reaches 13 million people after they reached an agreement with Cablevision this past week.
The Longhorn Network signed a deal this past week with Cablevision, which is the nation's ninth-largest cable provider. This deal comes just one month after AT&T U-verse agreed to pick up the network. This new addition gives the Longhorn Network a reach of 13 million subscribers. The details of the deal were not disclosed, and it's unclear what level of service one has to order from the company to get the network.
As of June, Cablevision boasts 3.2 million subscribers, who are on the East coast in New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
Texas has already broadcast two football games on the network, and there is the possibility of a third game, which would likely be against Iowa State.
The Longhorn Network is now available on Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse, Grande Communications and several small cable companies, which are mainly out in East Texas. This could just be the beginning of a snowball effect for other larger carriers to pick up the young network.
