    Why doesn't ATT Uverse carry the Hallmark Channel?  It is one of my favorite channels.  Considering changing companies if this channel is not added.

    What does ETA mean?? Also if there are no current plans to bring it back, how does one go about trying to get ATT Uverse to add the Hallmark Channel?

    Well....we're just subscribers who try to help out if we can.  But rumor has it that Hallmark wanted a huge increase in cost to carry that channel and AT&T refused.  But this is just supposition on my part.  You could contact AT&T directly or....even drop a letter to Hallmark.  Perhaps not much help....but it's what I'd do if we really missed any given channel a lot.

    None of us can do anything about getting the Hallmark Channel back as we are subscribers just like you. The reason The Hallmark Channel is not on U-Verse anymore has been rehashed and rehashed over and over again. The Hallmark Channel has been gone since September 1, 2010 due to the fact that Crown Media, the owner of The Hallmark Channel, was asking AT&T to pay a rate higher than the low rate of viewership that The Hallmark Channel had at the time warrented.

     

    You indicated in another thread that you were leaving U-Verse in December anyway.

     

    http://forums.att.com/t5/Features-and-How-To/Where-is-the-Hallmark-Channel/td-p/3606565/page/3

     

    You should have checked the channel lineup to see if The Hallmark Channel was part of U-Verse before you signed up.

    Does Hallmark advertise on other stations? If not then how did you hear about the shows on that channel?

    She could have checked the national or her newspaper weekly TV Guide or the daily listings in her local newspaper for what The Hallmark Channel was showing. Unfortunately, here in the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch no longer has a free weekly tv guide in the Sunday newspaper.

    They may do cross promotions.  Of course it also could be a talk show, as companies that produce shows run their cast to them any chance to promote them.

     

    I have seen print ads for the one hit show in several magazines, too.  Also, the wife is a Hallmark "Gold Crown" member @ the stores and the catalogs have ads for the movies that they show.

     

    Going back more on topic - the link to request channels is touted quite a bit.  I am curious how effective that is and if AT&T does much with it?

    I want to thank everyone for being there.I put in a request yesterday for a triple bundle though it was a bit pricey considering I have more channels where I am. Then looking at the channel line up couldn't find Hallmark or Hallmark movie channel. No one called me bach so I googled those channels finding this forum only to find out at&t let it get away when they aren't cheap for customers. I am cancelling the order for uverse The holidays are coming and love my hallmark. Maybe later if they get it back then I might come back to. I thought it sounded to easy something was wrong again thanks for having a place to get information

    1. I did the same survey from the link they give to have them add back the Hallmark channel last year and it is still not back.  I would like to have someone from AT&T message me so they can review my account and see how much money I send you every month between Uverse and my Cellphone and home phone. I understand that agreements have to be made with various TV providers but when half the programing my family is looking for at this time of year is on a channel that you don't carry then I logon and pay be very high bill I wonder what the heck am I paying for.  You do not want to give people any more reasons to switch to DirecTv or Cable.

    You can reach an actual person and not an automated survey link by sending a private message to the escalation team at AT&T Customer Care, and someone will get in touch with you.  It may be viewed as a backdoor way of getting AT&T's attemtion but it may be effective.  Good luck.

    Really, you may be an employee, but that same line has been posted for over 2 years.  No need to bring that up again.

    At this point I doubt either side is sitting down and talking and it's not hurting either one to the point where either one is begging the other.
