Where is the Hallmark Channel?

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.

Re: Why is there no Hallmark Channel?

I don't know what you're searching for but when I do a search for "Bridezillas" (don't judge), I get results for "372 WE".

Bear in mind that the search and guide only shows programs for the next 14 days.  Anything beyond that will not show up.

Re: Why do I no longer get the Hallmark Channel? Will it possibly be restored?

I'm guessing she just switched to U-Verse and was conned by a sleasy third-party sales rep...the worst of the worst, IMO.

People really need to look at channel guides the way they look at schools before they switch providers. If I found a good price on a house, would I move before I looked at schools in the area?

Re: Why is there no Hallmark Channel?

Looking for "My Fair Wedding", get no results. They usually run reruns

late at night, maybe it just hasn't been in the lineup lately. Thanks for

the info.

Try again.  It actually shows up twice in the search results.

It would be nice if she would respond to these posts instead of never coming back like a One Post One and Done Wonder. If she would tell us the complete story, it would be easier to comment on the circumstances. Her original post made it sound like she was just posting to put down U-Verse, possibly not even being an actual U-Verse subscriber.

Sounds like a troll or trying to entice people away from Uverse.

This seems to be happening often lately. Too often. And it may be becoming a nuisance.

 

I think the topic matter isn't the problem; the motivation is.

 

I've been on the side that says, "Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel should get returned to the AT&T U-verse channels lineup". But I also mentioned that I won't pretend that I know specifics about the contractual negotiations which apparently fell through in 2010. And I also mentioned that, if it this is a deal-breaker for people, the three years having passed since Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel left the AT&T U-verse channels lineup would have compelled most, who are dissatisfied, to make a personal switch and get their cable television programming from a different provider. This is, after all, a significant amount of time. In addition to it being a significant amount of time for a Hallmark Channel and/or Hallmark Movie Channel faithful viewer to be missing these programmers.

 

This prompts the following question: Who are the people who are posting these threads?

 

In a way, it doesn't matter. If I was moderating this area of the forum, I would close a number of those threads. I would go ahead and merge the topic into just one thread…and allow for just that one thread. Yes, go ahead and sticky it! And for anyone starting yet another new thread on the very same topic…it would get closed immediately. A kindly reminder would be explained to such a thread's OP which would go ahead and refer him/her to the already openly discussed thread. ("Here is the link, OP, and all others: @ … . Please use that thread for all further discussions on the topic.")

The interesting thing is that there was a single thread that was being used to post all of the "Hallmark" comments, but it was closed earlier this year.  I'm not sure why.  I knew that is would only result in numerous new threads being opened on the same topic which is what we are seeing now.

Hallmark has been gone so long the vulture Direct TV sales people at Costco are no longer using that as a reason to switch. 

 

From the sound of the OP it looks like they have had UVerse for a while and JUST NOW noticed that Hallmark is gone.  Shows how often they really watch.

And, as usual, the OP has never responded back about how they just noticed that the Hallmark Channel was gone. I cannot remember any of the other OP's responding back on the several Hallmark threads that have been opened in the last few weeks. My guess is that most of them are posting just to see what type of responses they get, and are  not even U-Verse subscribers in the first place.

I would think that all of us are on the side that wants the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel returned to U-Verse. The more channels, the better. I do not see any reason why anyone would not want those channels to be returned, cost not being a factor.

 

The two sides, in my opinion, are the side that wants the channels returned no matter what the price may be, and those who want the channels returned only if the contract is reasonable so that our subscription fees are not raised as a result.

I have to wonder if these people are Crown Media (aka the owners of the Hallmark Channel) employees that are posting this stuff.

 

Am I that cynical?  Yes.

I'm more likely to believe that it's a case of people who are pro-Hallmark coming in to post about the fact that U-Verse doesn't carry the channel even though they don't have U-Verse or are even in an area of the country that has it as a provider. 

 

It's similar to the people who want the Blaze on U-Verse (Now that I've said that they'll show up asking for the channel and to cancel CNN)

To come here and open up new threads, multiple new threads, despite the fact that there are existing threads seems to lend some credability to the statement I made above.  It almost seems like an act of desparation here.  Make for as much attention as possible just of the sake of making that much attention.  I have to wonder what's going on in Crown Media to make them think that they need to do this.  Are they that desparate for people to watch their channel?

 

Most, if not all of their content isn't original content.  They didn't make the content that shows on their channels.  95% of the content that Hallmark Channel shows is syndicated content that's been around for ages.  You can find most if not all of it on either Hulu or you can rent the stuff on DVD from NetFlix.
