Where is the Hallmark Channel?

I am new to At&t U verus. I was told when I signed up the Hallmark Channel was available.  It took me a week to finally realize you don't have it. Very misleading.

We had horrible service from our previous carrier Time Warner and couldn't be happier with Att, so it wasn't an option to review channels prior to the change, because it wouldn't have made a difference.  I would be happy to pay a monthly charge to watch The Hallmark Channel if offered, did suscribe to Spirt Clips to get a small fix but it isn't enough.  It's stupid that two companies can't resolve this.  In researching AT&T has been steadly growing over the past 3 years probably all those leaving crappy companies,  and one would think that Hallmark parent company would take notice.  So I turn to Lifetime, AMC, and Turner for the classics.   And maybe Hallmark will be offered on other venues like HULU and ITunes.

I am supposed to switch from Directv to Uverse next week.  I have been watching Hallmark all month because of all their holiday movies.  I was surprised when I didn't see this channel on the Uverse lineup.  They have so many obscure channels, you think they could work out a deal with a more mainstream service.  I might have to postpone my switch until after the holidays.

 

They have been at loggerheads for three years.  How sad.

I am sure youre effort is appreciated, but that link to Hallmark is pretty useless. Crown Media, the owner of the Hallmark and Hallmark Movie Channel, is very much aware that U-Verse does not carry their channels.

 

Please continue to post on this forum. You have two very good first posts.

I'm NEW to Uverse - sadly - and enjoyed all last Christmas watching the Hallmark Channel while at home - wonderful movies.  NOW - unfortunately - I find that ATT dropped Hallmark back years ago and because of the lack of forethought on my part - I'm stuck at least for 7 mos and 21 days before I'll be going back to COMCAST.  I am SICK that I ever switched.  Slow internet - problems constantly with TV's - every morning having a blue screen and having to use the tv remote to switch over to tv then back to dmi1 - what the? - THEN...,it works.  Or, unplug the unit for 10 seconds, plug it back in - wait for the ATT bing bing bing circle to reconnect - then.......you get tv.  How, pray tell, is that BETTER.  The channels are totally mixed up - so so so so so so sad I switched,  COMCAST - I love you and I will be back

1.  Yes, Hallmark has been gone for over 3 years.  If it's one of your faves, you probably should've checked before you switched.  No one provider carries every channel.

 

2.  Blue screen means you're turning your TV off but your box is still on and is going into the screen saver mode.  Make sure your box is OFF (all lights off) along with your TV.

 

3.  Channels mixed up?  EVERY provider places channels differently.  I, personally, like the way Uverse organizes their channels.  But there is a learning curve.

 

4.  Comcast=evil at my house....but that's just me.

Unfortunately that is a customer fail, on all levels.  It took them 4 months and 9 days to discover that they did not have a channel that they HAD to have?  It's also apparent that in 4 months and 9 days, they did not learn how to use the equipment (either not fully turning everything off or hitting the 8 hour standby switchover) nor did they learn the channel positions.  I normally side with the Hallmark "whiners" but this one has a funny smell, lol.  

 

7 Months, 20 days and a wakeup!  Tomorrow, they will be so short, they can parachute off a paperclip!

I was pretty admant about HGTV & DIY and verified that Uverse carried BOTH. 

 

Would I have been PO'd if they hadn't?  Yes, but it would be my own fault.

I know a solution has been accepted but I have another to offer. Go to hallmarkchannel.com Go to channel locator at the very bottom of the page. Request Hallmark Channel to add to At&T. We are scheduled to change U-Verse next week but I just realized Hallmark Channels are not available. Now I'm contemplating staying with dish.

On the Hallmark website, they are more than willing to work with ATT on a contract. We pay high dollar for ATT U-verse and ATT needs to do whatever is needed to ensure customer satisfaction.

This is not acceptable. Customers are demanding a service and no attempt is made to resolve this issue. What do they mean, fair deal? Customers pay high dollar for U-verse service and cannot get the one channel we want because AT&T is not willing to put the customer first. My God, bite the bullet and negotiate a deal. Hallmark offers the best Christmas movies and Lifetime (AT&T's alternate) is not satisfactory. I am beginning to think AT&T is anti-Chistmas and anti-christ. AT&T even charges a fee to watch many of the Christmas movies on demand. This is not right. This is the second year I have suffered through this mess and I will not tolerate a third year of this bogus excuse.

AT&T has fancy technology but they are not willing to get the one TV channel that many of its viewers desire, the Hallmark Channel. What is the use in having fancy technology and a thousand TV channels if you do not have the one channel you enjoy watching?

You bet. AT&T is a large company and they specialize in negotiating. They have no problem charging us high dollar. What do they want Hallmark to do, give them access to the channel free. Just as customers pay for what they want, AT&T must do the same to ensure customer satisfaction. On the other hand, if they do not care to satisfy their customers, then other companies are waiting in line for our dollars.

We are subscribers/customers just like you.  What answer/solution do you expect anyone on a message board to provide to you?

 

FACT:  ATT Uverse has not had Hallmark channel in over 3 years.

 

FACT:  ATT states that negotiations were fruitless.

 

FACT:  You can get Hallmark through other providers if it's that important.

 

FACT:  I personally don't give a rat's patootie about Hallmark channel.

 

Thank you.  Drive through.

I am beginning to think AT&T is anti-Chistmas and anti-christ

If they were anti-Christ as you mentioned, they wouldn't have ANY Christian channels, so that blows your theory there.

 

. AT&T even charges a fee to watch many of the Christmas movies on demand.

 

Most if not all providers have an OnDemand section where you pay for seasonal movies/shows.  There are plenty of free ones available if you just check the TV guide. Many of them will be aired at one time or another between now and Christmas as well.  I provided a link in this thread that shows a 26 page list of Christmas/Holiday shows that will be airing between now and Christmas, but I'll provide the link to the list here.

 

This is not right. This is the second year I have suffered through this mess and I will not tolerate a third year of this bogus excuse.

 

Since this the 4th Christmas season WITHOUT Hallmark channel (it was dropped in Aug. 2010 so 2010, 2011 and 2012 were all without it) you've had AMPLE opportunities to change providers if it that important to you.

I figure this is no-win situation, but, is getting really aggravating. I go to DVR Christmas programs for the grandkids coming over for a couple of days and almost ALL of the specials are on HMC or Hallmark!!! Pretty discussing.  Isn't it about time that something was worked out with ATT & Hallmark to get this wonderful channel.  I do like my U-Verse  - except for this issue. I have "gotten" over missing other shows on Hallmark and I guess I will explain to the kids that two big companies keep fighting!

I will be so glad when the holiday season is over, and the Hallmark complaint numbers will go down. As it has been repeated over and over again, Hallmark has not been a part of U-Verse since September 1, 2010. If it was so important for you to have Hallmark, you should have checked the channel lineups before you signed up for U-Verse.

 

How old are your grandkids?  If they are small, you can use sock puppets to explain the situation between AT&T and Crown Media, the owner of the Hallmark channels. One sock can be AT&T while the other is Crown Media. It is a good way of amusing them. Perhaps you can stage a fight between the sock puppets. If the AT&T sock wins, then no Hallmark. If the Crown Media sock wins, U-Verse has to start having the Hallmark channels immediately with no raise in fees.

Is there any chance of someone budging and bringing the Hallmark Channel back? And what "worked"?

Why is it that the Hallmark Channel is not available on UVerse but is available

through DirectTV?

Negotiations between Hallmark & ATT broke down three years ago (9/2010). 

 

No additional progress was made AFAWK.

Why are other channels available through U-Verse and not DirectTV? That is just the way it is. Channel lineups are not identical for each television provider.

 

Just because one provider carries a channel does not mean the others should carry it, too. If you are unhappy with the particular channel lineup of your provider, then switch to another provider. Then you may find there are channels you liked on your former provider that your new provider does not carry.

Can you explain what you mean by "And what "worked"?"

I am also sad that we that ha e Uverse can no longer get Hallmark and HMC. I have switched to watching TVland and an aweful lot of football now. I have also bought a lot of Christian movies at Christian book stores. I also watch a lot of the other Christian channels If I even watch tv. I rrally can't find anything on tv anymore that is worth watching, it's all so gross, immoral or just plan mean that I don't want to watch it and don't want my grand kids exposed to it. I do wish we could get the Hallmark channels back. It does seem a shame that we can't have some really decent shows on some of the more than 300 channels that we are paying for.

As it has been said over and over again, the Hallmark and Hallmark Movie Channel have not been part of the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010. How long have you been a subscriber to U-Verse? If you were a subcriber before that time, and if your are truly that unhappy with U-Verse, then you should have switched to another provider long ago. This is the fourth holiday season that U-Verse has not had Hallmark.

 

You should have checked the channel lineups to make sure the Hallmark channels were part of U-Verse before you signed up.

 

I hope that you are not a One and Done One Post Wonder, and come back to respond.

Seems ATT is only carrier in the area with this problem. Hallmark is on Comcast, Dish, and one other that I could find. Their rates are in line and even lower than Uverse. Guess I will have to start thinking about changing back to Comcast. Maybe leave phone and internet with att and switch tv to Comcast or something like this.

Is that the reason the number of U-verse TV subcribers goes up each quarter and is now 5.3 million making U-verse the 5th largest TV provider in the country? I know if they had the Hallmark Channel, they would be th largest TV provider in the country, right?
