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.

I am getting pressure from my wife to drop ATT and go to Charter to get the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.  I understand the issue with programming costs.  How about adding the Hallmark Channel as a premium channel (like HBO, etc)?  We would pay a monthly fee just to have those channels available - and be able to keep our other great ATT lineup. Otherwise, to keep peace at home, I may have to drop Uverse and go back to cable just to avoid spousal abuse!

 

Thanks for thinking about this option, ATT.   Negotiate a premium fee with Hallmark.  It could be a win-win for both ATT and Hallmark - as well as your customers who really appreciate the Hallmark programming. 


The problem with the premium channel option is that Hallmark probably wants the channel on a lower tier so they can get more money. (x cents times subscribers vs $12.95 times even fewer subscribers.) Putting the channel as a premium option would also make other providers feel hosed..."why can AT&T offer it as a $12.95 option where we have to charge everyone for a low-rated channel?"

Yup, my wife wants them back too.  They may never come back.   I think that either party (or maybe both) do not want to negotiate at this time.  Someone got their feelings hurt, IMHO.

 

I will agree the premium option won't work.

I do not have AT&T for cable TV because they do not have the Hallmark Channel. I will switch once they bring it back. Not everyone wants to watch sports.

Don't hold your breath.  Hallmark has been gone for well over 3 years and no sign of it's return. 

 

Enjoy your cable.

None of us can do anything about bringing the Hallmark Channel back as almost all of us are just subscribers to U-Verse, nothing more than that.

 

You are obviously unhappy with your current provider since only the lack of Hallmark is stopping you from switching to U-Verse. What features are you unhappy with your current provider?

 

Perhaps you should go to the forum of your current provider to express your unhappiness with them since they already have the Hallmark Channel.

 

I hope you will come back to this forum to post answers to my question.

I can't believe there's hundreds of people who are apparently stuck with U-Verse and are moping around because they live the agonizing life of not having Hallmark channel.

Do what I would have done years ago. Drop U-Verse and don't look back. If you came to U-Verse from another provider, that means you have options. Well, I double-dog dare you to switch immediately.

Baseballisback:  OP ssmotes is not a subscriber to U-Verse. He has another provider that he is unhappy with, but will not switch to U-Verse until the Hallmark Channel is back.

My wife and I just got back from her hometown where they carry the Hallmark Movie Channel.  We joined AT&T U-Verse when we moved into our new house last year - in the midst of the holiday programming season - she was quite despondent.  That despondency returned when we came back home from holiday.  OMG, AT&T U-Verse, PLEASE WORK IT OUT!!!!

Welcome! Don't be a stranger on the forums.

 

That being said, the channels have been gone from U-Verse for over three years.  You can reqwuest the channel here or post your concern on AT&T's Facebook page.  In my opinion - the more that do the latter, the more attention that it may bring to the powers that be.

I'll bet there are torrent websites online where you can watch live feeds of Hallmark and the NHL Network somewhere, if you look for them hard enough.

Please let us know your source and how your receive your numbers that indicate how many people say, "Stop!!! my Install-- Worsre when it's done to put back cable when the "No HallMark" refrence comes up!"

 

Can you give us exact numbers? We are interested. The fault lies with those people whom you claim to speak for who should have checked the U-Verse channel lineup before they signed up. Hallmark has been gone from the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010.

 

Your post makes very little sense. When you say, " Louisville!!!", does that indicate your preference for college basketball teams?

 

I do not understand your final sentence. Can you explain?  "Also the (3) KET channels lost in KY as per sey "Local" lose a few too. some persons get Two dishes to get them all!"

 

You might be on the wrong forum. U-Verse does not have satellite dishes. You should post on the Direct TV or Dish forums.

When I had DISH, I had to have two dishes to get all my local channels. And, having spent some time in Louisville, I know that KET is Kentucky Educational Television. KET, just like South Carolina ETV has subchannels that U-Verse fails to carry. I pull them down with an OTA antenna now. But I am still very confused. If the poster is thinking of DISH, it has always had Hallmark and still does. And I am not even sure U-Verse is available in Kentucky. A confusing post all the way around.

Cody: According to this map, U-Verse is available in Kentucky. I would assume that Louisville is included, but I cannot say that it definitely is.

Please pass on my discontentment with AT&T and not carrying Hallmark.  I left Time Warner because they dropped popular channels and I guess I will have to continue my search for satisfaction in my cable provider.

The Hallmark channels have been gone from the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010. You should have checked the U-Verse channel lineup before you signed up. I hope that you are not under contract with AT&T for U-Verse. Otherwise, you will be paying $180 to get out of the contract.

 

All providers drop channels at time. Good luck in finding a new provider that satisfies your needs.

I hated when they took it off...Actually I have been with U-Verse for a long time and before we switch to them that was one of the things I requested and of course then they had those Hallmark channels. I called right after we got the announcement - all the person at the other end could say - we are getting a lot of calls on this topic and we cannot do anything about it because Hallmark was to high for us to offer it...... that they will cut it off. This to me is just who can make ATT the big bucks! I do go visit my relative and watch it during the holidays and wish we had it back!! What makes me upset is that they have lots of channels that we do not watch for a few we like to watch... Some I know are quite bad and also there are so many sponsored ad channels! So really it is just a game of who can make them a profit.. I know personally some friends who have choices and will not switch until that is offered!!! I am using U-verse mostly because we need the internet and also the service is better when you think it rarely goes down like the other providers. We have choices in our area and I have tried most of them except dish since that is not reliable with the weather being a factor for service.

Like the old saying "MONEY TALKS!"  Smiley Happy I remember the days when payed cable would give you mostly non-commercial channels... because we payed for it.... Whow has that changed! I knew that would not last.... Think about it all those sport channels have sponsors and you still have to pay to have them!!! Except for HBO that has kept their word for the sports and movies but you may have to watch them has replays sometimes since those programs have to make money. One of the children program, Disney Channel, use to have no commercials boy that changed too...

I hated when they took it off...Actually I have been with U-Verse for a long time and before we switch to them that was one of the things I requested and of course then they had those Hallmark channels. I called right after we got the announcement - all the person at the other end could say - we are getting a lot of calls on this topic and we cannot do anything about it because Hallmark was to high for us to offer it...... that they will cut it off. This to me is just who can make ATT the big bucks! I do go visit my relative and watch it during the holidays and wish we had it back!!

You state that you have been with U-Verse a long time, even back when they had Hallmark. Yet, you are so very unhappy with everything, even things, that U-Verse has no control over.

 

Perhaps you should find another provider that meets your needs. I doubt you will find what you are looking for.

 

U-Verse is growing nicely despite not having the Hallmark channels since September 1, 2010.

 

This Hallmark stuff is getting so old and boring. Actually, it is not getting so old and boring. It has been old and boring for a long time.

You must work for AT&T... who else would say what you just said... Smiley Happy

 

Anyway  if it is so old request as you mentioned...., why do you hear that complaint that the channel is not available often? It means that some of us do care enough to complaint... Smiley Happy and maybe, maybe it will come back - I think from your previous comments all you care about is sports and if that is true and you work for AT&T ... that is an interesting combination...

AT&T employees carry a moniker stating such.   The "ACE" that replied to your post is not an ATT employee.  That I know.  Does dwinth love sports?  I guess so.  Smiley Frustrated

 

Do we hear complaints about Uverse failing to carry the Hallmark channel?  Practically DAILY!  Especially around the holidays.  Smiley Sad

 

Will ATT pick the Hallmark Channel up after a 3+ year absence?  Perhaps. Who knows what the future holds.  Smiley Surprised

 

Hope springs eternal.....  Smiley LOL

As Skeeterintexas said, I am not an employee of AT&T. Please site some of my previous posts that indicate that all I care about is sports. You will find that my posts are about a lot of different channels and subjects.

 

In reality, the only sports channel that I really care about is Fox Sports Midwest which carries the telecasts of the St. Louis Cardinals.

 

We have been hearing these complaining posts about the Hallmark channels since it was first announced in July, 2010, that the contract would be up on the last day of August, 2010. For the most part, we are are subscribers to U-Verse just like you. As far as I know there are no AT&T employees among the ACE forum members. Only the people in programming at AT&T can do anything about bringing back the Hallmark channels. The ACE forum members and everyone else who contribute to this forum cannot do anything about it.

 

Please do a little more research before you make your accusations.

I have been a longtime customer with ATT mobility and I even worked as a Customer Service Rep for a couple of years because I really liked ATT and believed in the service that it provides.  When UVerse was just coming out, I was excited about it and couldn't wait for it to come to my area because of many of the features.  When we moved into our new house, my hubby and I dropped Time Warner Cable for Uverse mainly due to the sports channels availability for my hubby.  It was my mistake that I did not catch that Uverse did not carry Hallmark Channel.  We were so focused on what channels they had for my hubby and my kids.  I love Hallmark movies all the time but especially the Christmas ones and I really missed them this year.  Honestly, I would happy to pay for the channel like a subscription channel i.e. Disney Movie Channel.  I don't want to leave Uverse, and my hubby would be disappointed to lose the NFL Redzone (He is from Colorado and doesn't get to watch some of the Broncos games here in NC without the channel).  I don't mind sacrificing what I want so my hubby can be happy but I don't think that either of us should have to sacrifice.

Thank you for a well thought out first post. You stated your feelings without making demands or threats to leave.

 

Welcome to the forum, and I hope you post often.

I know that demands and threats to leave don't help anything anyway.  I just wonder if Corporate every considered trying to meet the demands of many of their customers, as seen posted here and other web discussions that I have seen, by asking the public if they would absorb some of those fees in their subscription or by offering the channels as subscription channels.  I think that there are many of us that really love the family friendly programming and inspirational movies that don't even say anything about being unhappy.  I never even thought about voicing my disappointment until now and I have been a Uverse customer since April 2013.  That is partly because I didn't do my homework sufficiently to know that the Hallmark Channel and HMC were not part of the lineup, which made me a little embarassed, honestly.  I normally try to cover all my bases but I missed this one.  Thanks for the welcome to the community.
