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.

We are subscribers/customers just like you.  What answer/solution do you expect anyone on a message board to provide to you?

 

FACT:  ATT Uverse has not had Hallmark channel in over 3 years.

 

FACT:  ATT states that negotiations were fruitless.

 

FACT:  You can get Hallmark through other providers if it's that important.

 

FACT:  I personally don't give a rat's patootie about Hallmark channel.

 

Thank you.  Drive through.

This is not acceptable. Customers are demanding a service and no attempt is made to resolve this issue. What do they mean, fair deal? Customers pay high dollar for U-verse service and cannot get the one channel we want because AT&T is not willing to put the customer first. My God, bite the bullet and negotiate a deal. Hallmark offers the best Christmas movies and Lifetime (AT&T's alternate) is not satisfactory.

 

I am beginning to think AT&T is anti-Chistmas and anti-christ

 

Channel 560 - Trinity Broadcast Network

Channel 562 - Eternal Word Television Network

Channel 563 - Daystar Network

Channel 564 - Inspiration Network

Channel 565 - The Church Channel

Channel 566 - Family Net

Channel 567 - BYU Network

Channel 570 - JCTV

Channel 575 - The Word Network

Channel 578 - Family Entertainment Network

Channel 580 - Son Life Broadcast Network

 

If they were anti-Christ as you mentioned, they wouldn't have ANY Christian channels, so that blows your theory there.

 

. AT&T even charges a fee to watch many of the Christmas movies on demand.

 

Most if not all providers have an OnDemand section where you pay for seasonal movies/shows.  There are plenty of free ones available if you just check the TV guide. Many of them will be aired at one time or another between now and Christmas as well.  I provided a link in this thread that shows a 26 page list of Christmas/Holiday shows that will be airing between now and Christmas, but I'll provide the link to the list here.

 

This is not right. This is the second year I have suffered through this mess and I will not tolerate a third year of this bogus excuse.

 

Since this the 4th Christmas season WITHOUT Hallmark channel (it was dropped in Aug. 2010 so 2010, 2011 and 2012 were all without it) you've had AMPLE opportunities to change providers if it that important to you.

Re: Where is the Hallmark Channel??

I figure this is no-win situation, but, is getting really aggravating. I go to DVR Christmas programs for the grandkids coming over for a couple of days and almost ALL of the specials are on HMC or Hallmark!!! Pretty discussing.  Isn't it about time that something was worked out with ATT & Hallmark to get this wonderful channel.  I do like my U-Verse  - except for this issue. I have "gotten" over missing other shows on Hallmark and I guess I will explain to the kids that two big companies keep fighting!

I will be so glad when the holiday season is over, and the Hallmark complaint numbers will go down. As it has been repeated over and over again, Hallmark has not been a part of U-Verse since September 1, 2010. If it was so important for you to have Hallmark, you should have checked the channel lineups before you signed up for U-Verse.

 

How old are your grandkids?  If they are small, you can use sock puppets to explain the situation between AT&T and Crown Media, the owner of the Hallmark channels. One sock can be AT&T while the other is Crown Media. It is a good way of amusing them. Perhaps you can stage a fight between the sock puppets. If the AT&T sock wins, then no Hallmark. If the Crown Media sock wins, U-Verse has to start having the Hallmark channels immediately with no raise in fees.

 

We are all subscribers just like you on this forum, so there is nothing we can do.

Why is it that the Hallmark Channel is not available on UVerse but is available

through DirectTV?

Negotiations between Hallmark & ATT broke down three years ago (9/2010). 

 

No additional progress was made AFAWK.

Why are other channels available through U-Verse and not DirectTV? That is just the way it is. Channel lineups are not identical for each television provider.

 

Just because one provider carries a channel does not mean the others should carry it, too. If you are unhappy with the particular channel lineup of your provider, then switch to another provider. Then you may find there are channels you liked on your former provider that your new provider does not carry.

Can you explain what you mean by "And what "worked"?"

Re: Where is the Hallmark Channel??

I am also sad that we that ha e Uverse can no longer get Hallmark and HMC. I have switched to watching TVland and an aweful lot of football now. I have also bought a lot of Christian movies at Christian book stores. I also watch a lot of the other Christian channels If I even watch tv. I rrally can't find anything on tv anymore that is worth watching, it's all so gross, immoral or just plan mean that I don't want to watch it and don't want my grand kids exposed to it. I do wish we could get the Hallmark channels back. It does seem a shame that we can't have some really decent shows on some of the more than 300 channels that we are paying for.

As it has been said over and over again, the Hallmark and Hallmark Movie Channel have not been part of the U-Verse lineup since September 1, 2010. How long have you been a subscriber to U-Verse? If you were a subcriber before that time, and if your are truly that unhappy with U-Verse, then you should have switched to another provider long ago. This is the fourth holiday season that U-Verse has not had Hallmark.

 

You should have checked the channel lineups to make sure the Hallmark channels were part of U-Verse before you signed up.

 

I hope that you are not a One and Done One Post Wonder, and come back to respond.

Re: hallmark

Seems ATT is only carrier in the area with this problem. Hallmark is on Comcast, Dish, and one other that I could find. Their rates are in line and even lower than Uverse. Guess I will have to start thinking about changing back to Comcast. Maybe leave phone and internet with att and switch tv to Comcast or something like this.

Is that the reason the number of U-verse TV subcribers goes up each quarter and is now 5.3 million making U-verse the 5th largest TV provider in the country? I know if they had the Hallmark Channel, they would be th largest TV provider in the country, right?
