Dish Network subscribers will get to tune in on the Longhorn Network, ESPN’s 24-hour network devoted to The University of Texas, tonight for the first time.

The service will be available to Dish customers on channel 407 in the America’s Top 120+ and higher packages nationwide, beginning Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m. The launch follows the far-reaching pact the No. 2 DBS provider reached with ESPN parent, The Walt Disney Co., back in March.

Coming out of the gate, Dish subscribers will see a marathon of award-winning Longhorn Network programming May 28 and 29 that includes the debut of two Texas football specials, the best of LHN’s exclusive All Access series, games and features, plus live daily news and information shows.

LHN will also carry live coverage of each Texas baseball game from the NCAA baseball regional round, starting on Friday, May 30 at 3 p.m. (CT), when Texas takes on Texas A&M.
