Re: Longhorn Network and Dish Network [re: applewhite52]

Come on Dish.... as of now I already made plans to attend the game because I don't want to miss the game. I can't imagine satellite providers not carrying it because of tailgating and bars. I just can't wait around and risk not being able to watch it at home where I am most comfortable. Already have a great tailgate to attend so the heat will not feel so bad after a few brews.

Re: Longhorn Network and Dish Network [re: applewhite52]

I won't post the entire conversation, but the only potentially useful information I got from Dish Network was this:

"We are getting large number of request for the Longhorn Network, I am sure they will consider the customer demand." This was the response when i asked if they would have an update by the end of the week. They also stated they would submit my programming request.

Probably wasn't even worth the time I spent on it, but who knows, maybe it will help get this finalized by the end of the week.

Re: Longhorn Network and Dish Network [re: applewhite52]

for what it is worth, and this is purely speculation:

The Fox Soccer Channel (FSC) has been on channel 149 just above the ESPN channels for some time. The guide says "This channel is moving to 406." That would put it in the channel range for the other Fox sports channels on Dish.

Could 149 be the future home of the LHN ON Dish? Hmmm...
