Charter Expands Longhorn Network Access for Texas Customers

| August 23, 2013 | |

Three more communities gain service, online app launches 

FORT WORTH, Texas –  With channel additions in multiple cities and new online access, Charter is giving the eyes of Texas more ways than ever to enjoy University of Texas Longhorn sports.

Beginning Aug. 27, Charter customers in three Texas communities – Duncanville, Rockwall and Spring – will find the Longhorn Network (LHN) in standard definition (SD) on channel 299 and high definition (HD) on channel 801 of their Charter channel lineup.

The channel additions come just in time for the Aug. 31 season-opening football game against New Mexico State, a game telecast exclusively on LHN. The Longhorns’ much-anticipated Sept. 14 matchup with Mississippi and the Nov. 2 game against Kansas will also be carried exclusively on LHN.

Charter customers in Fort Worth and 40 surrounding communities gained LHN access and more than 80 additional HD channels earlier this year as part of the largest HD channel launch in Charter’s history. And now, they can take the action beyond their television sets with access to the LHN website and Apple iPhone app with OS 5.0 or later. That means Charter customers have unprecedented, 24/7 access to their favorite Longhorn sports with the ability to watch at home or on the go.

“The timing couldn’t be better for us to bring the Longhorn Network and the LHN website and app to more Charter customers in Texas,” said Kevin Allen, vice president and general manager for Charter in Texas. “We’re thrilled to bring the excitement of Longhorn athletics to screens both big and small. It’s a chance to support the home team and provide additional value to our customers.”

Customers can watch LHN online content, including live streaming events, at or download the app from the App Store. Customers must choose Charter as the designated TV provider and sign in using their Charter credentials to begin watching Longhorn Network programming.
