What is the Longhorn Network?
Created in 2011, the Longhorn Network was a bit unusual in that it aligned around a single school and not a conference. Like the ACC Network and SEC Network, the Longhorn Network has ties to ESPN.
It promises its viewers at least two regular-season football games. In normal times, it also offers about 25 basketball games, with slightly more women’s games than men’s games. It also carries a great number of baseball and softball games, and pretty much all the home volleyball and soccer matches.

These three services carry Longhorn Network.
If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
There’s also a Sports Extras option for Orange + Blue subscribers, with MLB Network, NBA TV, and NHL Network part of the plan. There’s also a Sports Extra add-on for the Sling Blue package, and another one for the Sling Orange package. For Longhorn Network, Sling Orange plus the Sports Extra package gets you in, as does Orange + Blue with Sports Extras.

AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Ultimate and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. Take it to the Max (tier or above) to stream Longhorn Network.
For under $40 a month, Vidgo brings more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), NFL Network, and Longhorn Network at even the Core level.
It’s also one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. Like Fubo, it started out for streaming sports but carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.
Vidgo has two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.
