SATURDAY IN THE PARK: In Austin, Gary Dinges notes LHN will “take over Republic Square this Saturday, broadcasting the Texas-Wyoming football matchup on a multi-story video wall.” LHN will also have a “similar set-up" for the New Mexico game next Saturday. The net's video wall “will be 8 feet tall and 18 feet wide,” and a 30-foot-by-40-foot tent “will be constructed at the park, with four more TV screens.” A beer garden "is planned, as well.” Meanwhile, LHN announced that Grande Communications subscribers will be able to watch the net “online using laptops and other devices” (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 8/30).
