DirecTV is the latest carrier to pick up the Austin-based Longhorn Network.

The satellite provider added LHN to its lineup today.

Customers in Texas who have the Choice package or higher can find it on Channel 677. Outside Texas, subscribers must get DirecTV’s Sports Pack to see LHN.

The deal, announced late last year, marks a big win for the network, which is operated by ESPN as part of a 20-year, $300 million contract with the University of Texas. DirecTV had been one of the last big holdouts to pick up LHN, which launched in 2011.

Other carriers that offer LHN include Time Warner Cable, Grande Communications, Google Fiber, AT&T U-verse, Verizon FiOS and Dish Network.
