I have been watching it to. It is nice to be able to watch all of the Longhorns games this year. But prior to the LHN, all of these games were televised anyway. This is just an unnecessary ploy to milk consumers out of more of their hard-earned cash. I kind of wish that the LHN would just fold up shop and go away.
Look at it like this: before the LHN you had to buy that one game a year on pay per view. Now you have to spend 40 cents a month for LHN. It's cheaper to pay 40 cents a month for multiple games in every sport than it is to pay 20 or 30 bucks for one football game.
