Sling TV announced today that they have added Longhorn Network, the channel dedicated to University of Texas sports, to their Sling Orange Sports Extra add-on. With PlayStation Vue shutting down in January, this couldn’t be more timely. Besides Sling TV, AT&T TV NOW is the only other service that carries the channel — but unlike Sling TV which is carrying it nationally, it is only available as a Regional Sports Network in their $80 AT&T TV NOW Max plan.
