    It amazes me that they convinced themselves that the nation just wants to get non-stop coverage over their average athletic program and especially their declining football team.

    Theyre trying to compensate for their shitty performances over the past several years

    I don't care. It is a bit little to late compared to what the Sooners have with Fox Sports.

    This is fantastic news!

    I understand that Mack has agreed to reveal Sally's super secretive recipe for ****e-pecan cookies.

    Goodbye, Oprah! I'm moving to LHN!

    I've had LHN for quite a while on my U-verse in Lubbock. Don't recall ever tuning in for the crap they show. LHN = Giant fail!

    Its actually not a bad channel to have. It was quite fun watching it OU week and especially the week after.

    Watching Mack, Harsin & Diaz have to do shows recapping the game was gold.

    Their postgame show after the butt kicking in the Cotton Bowl was worth watching! But that is about it.

    to hell with cox, mack and the lhn, if cox was the only carrier in town I would listen to the radio. They screwed me for the last time. Have been with direct for about six months and I'am saving about 20 dollars a month. cox can suck it.

    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.

    Interesting to see the spin from the Texas people and LHN. Reality is the deal was through Disney for their literally hundreds of different media properties. Of course I'm biased but it looks to me like the LHN was a throw in.. Kind of like the car dealer guy who throws in those back seat floor mats. You know they're not worth shit but you have no reason to say no.

    It mentions that it will be on the air in OK, Ark, Kansas, La. Does this deal involve any Texas markets?
