Texas sports on TV now as close as your laptop
If you can't get enough of last year's Rose Bowl victory or last month's triumph in Columbus, Ohio, or you want to know what Coach Mack Brown thinks of the game only minutes after the final gun, then TexasSports.TV is for you.
For the Longhorns faithful, TexasSports.TV is Christmas and birthday rolled up into one.
It is an opportunity to see exclusive interviews, live action of select UT Athletics events, classic games and more -- all on your computer.
Subscribers also will have access to delayed replays of football and men's and women's basketball games.
And if a Texas basketball, baseball or football game is not televised, it is available on TexasSports.TV.
"Generally, our sports teams receive wonderful exposure through the Big 12 Conference network and television partners -- ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports Net and CSTV," notes Chris Plonsky, women's athletics director and senior associate athletics director for external services.
"But with Host Communications, our multimedia rights partner," she continued, "we have taken some bold steps recently to expand production and sports events programming on a variety of media platforms.
"TexasSports.TV is our outlet for events we may self-produce, including our Jumbotron footage from home games in football, basketball and, soon, baseball. We also can produce Olympic sports home events -- soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball -- for Internet viewing."
A year of TexasSports.TV is only $79.95. There is also a $9.95 monthly option. To be able to enjoy TexasSports.TV, you'll need cable, DSL, or T1 access.

In addition, subscribers will receive replays and exclusive offers for baseball, soccer, softball and volleyball.
"This is a great supplement to the conventional means by which most games and events are delivered," Plonsky said. "TexasSports.TV provides a unique outlet for events that otherwise would not be viewed. Now, we can bring these Texas sports events to all."
