Longhorn Network Is Free This Weekend Online

It's November 10 and the controversial Longhorn Network is still available on only Grande Communications and Verizon Fios among medium to large carriers. With two proprietary football games already in the books, it seems unlikely that ESPN is going to reach agreements with DirecTV, Dish Network, AT&T UVerse, Time Warner or Charter any time soon. Add in the Big 12 mess, and LHN has a shot at going down in history as one of the worst executed concepts ever. With all of that said...

Verizon and Grande are sponsoring what is being called an All-Access Weekend where everyone can check out LHN this weekend online for free, regardless of your provider. The free content will stream starting Friday morning at 9:00 CT through Sunday night at midnight. The headlining content looks to be Texas' second basketball game of the season against Boston.
