Cox to begin carrying the Longhorn Network
Cox Communications plans to begin carrying the Longhorn Network in Oklahoma as part of a new distribution agreement with The Walt Disney Co., which owns the network.
The Longhorn Network in Oklahoma? It might seem like an unlikely pairing, but Cox Communications plans to begin carrying the Longhorn Network in Oklahoma as part of a new distribution agreement with The Walt Disney Co., which owns the network.
Cox spokesman Christine Martin said the system has not yet decided on a channel position for the network or start date, but it would be available on the sports tier.
After launching in August 2011, the Longhorn Network has struggled to gain subscribers in Texas and across the country. The network aired three Texas football games this season.
As part of the new multiyear agreement, WatchESPN also launched as the first of Disney's existing authenticated products being made available to Cox customers. The companies also announced that ESPNEWS and ESPN Classic will be added to Cox TV Connect, Cox's proprietary app that allows customers to watch live TV on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch from anywhere in their homes.
