With PlayStation Vue shutting down it had removed one of the few services to offer the Longhorn Network to cord cutters. Now cord cutters have one more option to access this popular RSN. For now, it seems that the Longhorn Network is only offered in the greater Texas area as a regional sports network.
“Today, we’re adding the Longhorn Network (LHN) to Sling’s lineup, bringing University of Texas (UT) fans access to the university’s official channel – and all things Texas Longhorns. Sling Orange customers can begin streaming the 24-hour network now by subscribing to Sports Extra for $10/month. Talk about a slam dunk!” Sling TV said in a statement on their website.

Sling TV subscribers are now able to record programming from ESPN, ESPN2, ACC Network, SEC Network, ESPN Bases Loaded, ESPN Deportes, ESPN Goal Line, ESPNEWS and ESPNU. So if they want to watch their favorite team winning an epic bowl game over and over, now they can!
