Barking Carnival was the first to announce the deal - seemingly before it was even "done."
AT&T "flipped the switch" to start broadcasting the network early Friday morning. Fans started posting pictures of their TV screens as early as 6 a.m.
Then the waiting game began for journalists. The word was out but it wasn't "official" word.
KUT News the first to get confirmation?
Still, hours pass before the true sign of the done deal is revealed... a press release.
With the word out, University of Texas at Austin figureheads make their thoughts known.
