Conference network goes national

The Mountain West Sports Network is joining forces with DirecTV and will launch the Mtn. nationwide no later than Sept. 1.

The Mtn. is the nation’s first network dedicated to one college conference, the Mountain West Conference, which TCU has been a member of since 2005.

DirecTV is the nation’s largest satellite-television service provider, available to 16.8 million customers.

Previously, the Mtn. was unavailable in Texas.
