Still no Hallmark channel

Wondering if U verse is ever going to get the Hallmark channel. One reason I switched back to cable after two months. They'd better do something about this because they are losing business and customers.

Re: Still no Hallmark channel

According to your message below, lack of the Hallmark Channel was not the only reason that you are no longer a U-verse TV customer.

That's true, it wasn't the only reason...Bad reception and poor picture also played a part. And the modem failing constantly after being replaced. I got fed up with the slow internet too that I bundled with. I do have an AT&T cell which I am very happy with...but the TV and internet....no thank you! Just what you prefer I guess!

By the way, U-verse TV had 2.7 million TV customers on September 30, 2010 which was around the time that the Hallmark Channel was removed from the lineup.  As of  March 31, 2013, U-verse had 4.8 million TV customers.  I don't see the loss of business or customers.

Based on your comments, I am mystified by your first post.  It would seem that even if the Hallmark Channel was part of the U-verse lineup, you would still not be a U-verse TV customer.  What was the purpose of starting this thread?

Re: Still no Hallmark channel

I was voicing my opinion like everyone else. Not having the Hallmark channel was one of the issues I had with U verse as I said. There were others. Adding them all up, I chose to leave...this is a forum and I am voicing my concern over some of AT&T's services like everyone else. I did not however say it with hatred like I have seen some posts here.  This was my experience. Isn't this what a forum is for? I am not stirring the pot but expressing why I left U verse and internet. You can make your own decisions on what service you want.

If your goal wasn't to stir the pot then why exactly did you post something about it? This is an original topic so you wern't replying to someone's question.

I think what everyone is trying to understand is why you, not being a U-verse TV customer and not wanting to be a U-verse TV customer, would have such a concern about the Hallmark Channel not being in the channel lineup that you would create a thread about it on a U-verse TV forum.

If true, this was an odd comment:  "I do have an AT&T cell which I am very happy with...but the TV and internet....no thank you! Just what you prefer I guess!"

Re: Still no Hallmark channel

I'll offer this up, given that I came here to see if the Hallmark fiasco with Uverse had been resolved and I see the terse attitudes being displayed here. You have sealed the fate of Uverse with THIS customer so yes zoey5552 may be correct in saying that Uverse is losing customers based on the decision to not carry any of the Hallmark Channels because they will not be gaining THIS customer. My better half watches Hallmark more than any other channel so when moving to a new location where Uverse is offered, the decision to NOT go with Uverse is SOLELY based on the fact that they do not have Hallmark in the lineup. Your display of the customer base going from 2.7 to 4.8 million customers proves absolutely nothing with regard to LOST customers or customers that choose to forgo the Uverse lineup because Hallmark is not included. All it says is the customer base has increased 2.1 million for SOME reason. If Uverse had included Hallmark, the customer base could be 6.9 million (for an arbitrary example, much like your 4.8 million correlation to Hallmark vs. non-Hallmark). If texasguy37 is any example of the administrators on this forum, AT&T will continue to NOT get my business. And if the other complaints about slow speeds and modems failing...then all the more reason to stick with Charter who carries Hallmark and consistently provides me with 40-60mbps internet speeds, all over a modem that I have (literally) had running for 16 months without cycling power...that is what I call rock solid performance.
