Re: If AT&T gets the Hallmark Channel back...

Yeah. I also suspect that many of these threads are posted by Hallmark employees or employees of competing providers. If they were AT&T customers, I'm sure they'd want to keep us in the loop regarding their issues. "My AT&T broke! I'm out of here!" ... You all know what I mean.

There *is* a "New to U-Verse" section. It would be heavenly is new users could only post (or maybe just start new threads) in there. Once they pass a certain threshold, they'd be allowed to start new topics elsewhere. When we have four or five threads on the same topic and they're all on the first page...hmmm...

You know, I used to think that and there may have been some of that early on but now, I seriously doubt it.  Why?  Crown is not losing all that much because the channels are not being carried by U-Verse.  There may be some trolling by folks upset that AT&T no longer offers them.  I also see that first time posters do reply and don't stop just at their first post.  Even if they are "two post wonders," it means that they are staying engaged and not a bot making posts.

 

I also think that some pushback of the complainers by long time forum members is a demographic mismatch type of deal.  Most Hallmark viewers are Females and /or older,  at that but many (but not all)of the Forum regulars are male (and some are quite a bit younger) so they easily discount the channels as worthless.  My wife, wjo is disabled, spends 90% of the time at home and I know that she sorely misses the channels, especially movies.  

 

To answer your first question - YES!  If the channels are brought back, the posts would stop, except some Thank you's, for bringing them back.  The posts about AMC stopped as soon as it was reported that the contract was signed.  As for the posts that "they" would just find some other channels to complain about.  That doesn't make a lick of sense.  What channel(s) has AT&T dropped that folks would discuss?

You'd think if there are all these flipping threads ATT would get the message. My wife wants Hallmark and is asking me to switch to DirectTV. ATT may say goodbye tomy $280 per month. The wife wants what the wife wants.

Calling DirectTv tomorrow I may switch but might not. I'd really like to know if ATT considers this a customer issue and if they are doing anything to resolve the issue.

All these threads regarding Hallmark represent less than 0.001% of UVerse customers and less than 0.00001% of Hallmark viewers.  Hallmark has not been on UVerse since 2010 and it has not hurt their growth at all.  Since the channel was dropped AT&T has added over 2 Million UVerse customers.

How are you going to explain this to your wife if you do not switch? After all, you stated that "The wife wants what the wife wants."

 

No one on this forum can tell you "if ATT considers this a customer issue and if they are doing anything to resolve the issue." We are U-Verse subscribers just like you, or at least U-Verse subscribers like you used to be if the wife gets what she wants.

 

How long have you been a U-Verse subscriber? The Hallmark Channel has not be a part of U-Verse since September 1, 2010. You should have checked the channel lineup list before you subscribed.

 

I hope you are not a Two and Done Two Post Wonder, and will post again in response.

We should bump this thread whenever someone posts a H*llm@rk thread.

Better yet, we ban the word Hallmark so no more threads can be started.

Yes!  Can we add "Hallmark" to the word filter?

But if the apologists don't answer, how will they get steak knives?
