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.

That is very disappointing.  I switched from Comcast recently and didn't realize that Hallmark wasn't offered on U-Verse since I didn't think Hallmark would be a specialized channel that not all carriers would provide.  Is there a place to give feedback on the ATT website? 


The Hallmark Channel has been gone from U-Verse since September 1, 2010. Please make your request for that channel here:    http://uversechannels.att.com/

 

Not all providers carry the same channels. U-Verse carries channels that other providers do not have. Always check the most current channel listings before changing providers.

Maybe they watched it at a friend's house, a hotel, on any other provider except U-Verse and so on.

We are new customers that were told Hallmark was in the lineup. We are very very disappointed to see that it is not. With quality programming suitable for the entire family you have to wonder why this is no longer available. New series being developed Cedar Cove and The Good Witch are shows you can watch with your family. It is our hope AT&T recognizes how rare and valuable that is today. Hopefully this will be brought back into the lineup. We would hate to have to go back to Direct TV.

Ok I'm calling you out as Astroturfing.  Hallmark hasn't been carried by U-verse since 2010 and there is NO ONE who would have told you that the channel is carried unless they have really old material or were just outright lying to you.

 

Cedar Coves TV rating is TV-PG which implies ot me that you can't exactly watch this show with all of your family if you have young kids. 

 

If you're looking for Family enterainment for younger kids, check out Sprout.  It has a ton of original programming and carries several PBS Kids Tv shows as well.

Americangame: A very excellent response. I would hope the original poster would respond to your post, but you know how that goes.

 

I wish these first time posters, especially on the Hallmark subject, would look for existing threads so that all of these mini Hallmark threads would be eliminated.

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

However, your post sounds more like a planned, carefully written PR piece than someone who actually has the U-Verse service.  I usually side with pro-Hallmark posters, as my wife really misses the channels.  If you are truly a subscriber who was lied to, well I feel for you, a bit.  You didn't check the line up yourself?  Would you switch Health Insurances without seeing for yourself that your Doctor is not a preferred provider? 

 

At any rate.  Is Cedar Cove a show to watch with your family?  Folks are alcoholics.  Folks embezzle.  Folks have affairs.  Family friendly?  Let's explain to a twelve year old about Grace and Will's adultery.  "Mommy loves daddy but daddy also loves Jennie, on the next block."  I crack myself up!

What an incredibly rude response. I am a subscriber and this is not a PR piece. You sound like an angry person who needs a vacation or a long bubble bath. Relax. If you had Hallmark Channel you could watch some uplifting positive programming. Take care of yourself. AT&T promotes their subscription with the tag line "Break up with cable, not your shows." Not an accurate statement.

Sorry if I came across as being rude @MomsVote, I wasn't, I was just being honest.  No one wants Hallmark back more than I do.  My wife (who is disabled), loves it. 

 

You see, when Hallmark and AT&T could not come to an agreement back in 2010 (FOUR years ago), there were obviously some plants from Hallmark's parent company "Crown Media" who came by and posted carefully worded posts each day, word for word the same.  Those posts went away as it was apparent that neither side was budging.  We do get posts but when I hear "Cedar Cove" and "Family Friendly" in the same breath, I am a bit suspicious, as you could imagine.  You should report the person who lied to you by sending a private message to the escalation team at AT&T Customer Care, and someone will get in touch with you.  For future reference, check channel lineups yourself - no surprise that way.

As for a vacation and a bubble bath - I'll take both, please!

Does anyone know if U-verse will be getting Hallmark in the near future? We had been with Charter for years then about 4 years ago changed to U-verse because Charter dropped Hallmark. I was telling guy installing the U-verse equipment why we had changed. About a month after that ATT dropped Hallmark. When I called to inquire about it, I was told because of cost with the channel they dropped it but were in negotiations and it would probably be picked up again. That was 4 years ago. Charter has Hallmark so I'm considering going back.

How completely disappointed am I that you did not renew the Hallmark subscription. Not all people prefer violent movies or some of the utterly deployable stuff you do pay for subscriptions for. A channel of that quality deserves to be on ATT Uverse network. Why am I paying ATT for such low brow trash that seems to fill the Uverse lineup?

The Hallmark channels have been gone from the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010. It sounds like that you have been a U-Verse subscriber for a while. If this is true, and you are that disapointed with U-Verse, you should have found another provider a long time ago.

 

Perhaps you should give another look at the U-Verse channel lineup. The huge number of channels have something for everyone, and not all of them are low brow trash as you seem to indicate.

No one on this forum can give you a date when and if Hallmark will be returning to the U-Verse lineup. Almost all of us are just subscribers as you are. Why after four years of Hallmark not being part of the U-Verse lineup are you finally deciding to go back to Charter? 

 

Obviously, from your post, you have been a U-Verse subscriber since before September 1, 2010.

Who mislead you? Was it a customer service person that you reached when you called AT&T? Was it someone at an AT&T store? Was it a door to door sales person representing AT&T? Any written channel listings would not show Hallmark as part of the U-Verse lineup. As Skeeterintexas told you, Hallmark has been gone for four years now.

 

I hope that you would respond, and let us know who told you that Hallmark was part of the U-Verse lineup.

 

In the future, please check to see if their are existing threads on a particular subject instead of starting a new one. I would hope that the moderators would add this thread to the existing one.

In fact, I wish the moderators would eliminate all threads pertaining to the Hallmark channels, and ban the word "Hallmark".

@fool58 - so you didn't check the lineup yourself?  This would be very similar to switching health insurance companies and not checking to see if your Doctor is on the plan.

If you were lied to then by all means send a private message to the escalation team at AT&T Customer Care, and someone will get in touch with you.

Is AT&T trying to get them back? It is a very popular channel.
Why would they say they have it when they didn't??

Who is they?  Who EXACTLY said that ATT carried the Hallmark channel?

Last night I was at an AT&T store switching our mobile phone service to AT&T. I tested our sales person by asking her if U-Verse still had the Hallmark channels as part of their lineup. She said, "no". I told her that I was testing her.

 

She indicated to me that people at her store know to tell customers that U-Verse is no longer part of the U-Verse lineup if asked. She feels that the biggest culprits who spread incorrect information in order to make a sale are the door-to-door sales people as well as some of the customer service people when you call AT&T.

I talked with someone in the know and yes, they are trying to get them back.  He said that it almost happened in 2013.  So, it sounds encouraging but nothing is a slam dunk (just ask our local CBS station, who is losing the network after 58 years!). 

As far as the channel being popular - it has only one high rated show.  What it does have is fairly universal carriage - just not on U-Verse.

 

A little background - back in 2010, AT&T U-Verse had a much smaller footprint  and apparently channel providers were taking advantage of AT&T at contract time.  Some channels had territories and would not allow AT&T to carry them in some states, some would not allow AT&T to have HD channels and so on.  They, as a for-profit company, were a bit tired of having no clout.  So when the Hallmark and HMC came up for renewal, AT&T balked at paying Crown Media, double (Hallmark had also just hired Martha Stewart and was paying her a huge sum, so that was Crown's  motivation for trying to get more).  So, AT&T had to use a smaller group as an example, so they did not come to terms to tell others that we will play hardball, just as TWC and Dish do and continue to do.  Long story short, they have been gone for almost FOUR years.  Most reps know this, so it must be that they wanted to make a sale.

The Hallmark channels have been gone from the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010. It sounds like that you have been a U-Verse subscriber for a while. If this is true, and you are that disapointed with U-Verse, you should have found another provider a long time ago.

 

Perhaps you should give another look at the U-Verse channel lineup. The huge number of channels have something for everyone, and not all of them are low brow trash http://www.uversechannels.com/national-legal-description as you seem to indicate.

I'm sure you saw the post (it's probably in this thread somewhere) mentioning that Hallmark had several shows which *could* be "low-brow trash," depending on your definition of the word.

SO FRUSTRATED! Just came back to U-Verse after being gone almost 3 yrs. and discovered Hallmark was gone. My bad for not researching this issue before going through with installation. I watch Hallmark daily for Golden Girls/Frazier; I also like Cedar Code and lots of their movies. I have searched and Frazier is not listed in ANY U-Verse programming. :-(  One reason for changing from Dish was because of programming issues, now I'm stuck with no Hallmark. Submitted about 10 surveys requesting Hallmark, but really don't expect any type of response, especially when I see some of the rude comments received on these posts!

We have had ATT UVerse TV for one day and I am already strongly considering returning to Direct TV.  The Hallmark Channel is my wife's favorite.  I never dreamed it would not be on the channel lineup or I never would have signed up.  Not pleased.   Will be switching back to Direct TV within the week.

Well, if they would not have been asking such a ridiculous high price/subscriber, espescially when the % watching at any time was not that high. :smileywink:

 

You can be requesting it here: http://uversechannels.att.com/
