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.

When I recently inquired into getting Uverse, I gave the sales person a list of the channels that we presently had and wanted to have if we switched. One of these was the Hallmark channels. I was told by this person that they were in negotiations with Hallmark. I don't know if this was actually true or if he was just using that for sales leverage. We decided against Uverse anyway because he didn't sound very convincing and no Hallmark was a deal breaker.

If this was recently, he's been telling the same story for 3 years.

Re: Hallmark

Wow, two more One Post Wonders regarding the Hallmark Channel.  Gotta wonder how many times this person is creating a new account?  Hallmark has not been on UVerse for over 3 months, it's not on any channel line up, written or on the web.  Do your homework people.

This saga sounds like a line from "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean...."

 

Bring Back, Bring Back

Bring Back my Hallmark to me

(or I'll Leave)

(or not sign up)♪

 

This thread of Hallmark Lovers and Hallmark Lover, Haters reminds me of my first day on the job, where I work at now, (way back in 1987).  These two women were arguing and their only comebacks to each other were; "well, you're uglier than me" and "you're just as ugly."  Seriously. Smiley Very Happy

What other channels does U-Verse no longer have anymore due to a contract dispute other than The Hallmark Channel, The Hallmark Movie Channel, and the NHL Network? I am not counting Al Jazeera America since we never had it in the first place.

 

As far as I can remember, the only other channels no longer on U-Verse were channels that changed their names and possibly their formats or those that simply went out of existence.

 

Of course some people lost channels due to the fact that new carriage agreements placed them in different tiers. I am not counting those channels since they are still part of U-Verse.

I just realized there were three other channels that U-Verse dropped on July 1, 2012, the three Root Sports Channels- Pittsburgh, Rocky Mountain, and Northwest.

 

Doing some additional research, I found a post by Texasguy from July 30,2012, where he listed all of the channels dropped which also included ESPN 3D and The Soundtrack Channel.

 

http://forums.att.com/t5/2013-and-Earlier-Relevancy/All-Three-quot-Root-quot-Stations-Are-Now-Gone/m...

 

According to Wikipedia, The Soundtrack Channel is still around. ESPN 3D was shut down on September 30, 2013.

 

I do not see any major players on it's list of providers for The Satellite Channel. Insight Communications was completely absorbed by Time Warner last year so this November, 2013, Wikipedia article is incorrect. I do not know if Time Warner carries The Satellite Channel anywhere.

Re: Hallmark

Uverse will not be in my home any time soon. I may sign up for a one year contract and one month in find out that several of my favorite channels have been dropped.

What the heck are you talking about? Did you not read the list of channels that I posted along with the date that those channels were dropped?

 

The Hallamrk Channel and  The Hallmark Movie Channel were gone on September 1, 2010. The NHL Network was gone on October 1, 2011. The three Root Channels were gone on July 1, 2012. ESPN 3D is no longer in existence while The Soundtrack Channel is a very minor channel on only a few American outlets.

 

What channels can you name that U-Verse has dropped since July 1, 2012 that are still in existence? None, I bet.

 

Lord help your provider if they should ever drop a channel.  We have heard on everyone of your posts that you do not want to sign up for U-Verse. We get the idea. None of us want to sign up for your provider, either, since we have chosen to have U-Verse as our provider.

So you seriously believe that AT&T Uverse is the ONLY provider that has contract disputes?  I guess you missed the last one TWC had with CBS where it was off the air for a couple of weeks until a contract was signed.  Last I checked Direct still has not resolved the contract issue with The Weather Channel, so you see, it's not exclusive.  For all you know you may wake up tomorrow and you may be missing several channels on your current provider because they are "negotiating" with the network.  Heaven forbid it's one of the major networks as they own several of the other channels.  ABC/Disney/ESPN etc.
