Re: Hallmark Drama

A little over a month before Hallmark launches its third network, Hallmark Drama. No word whether Comcast/XFINITY will have the channel.  Wish someone would find out.

I'm curious too because if Hallmark moves their original series to the new network then what will they still air on Hallmark itself that can also be shown on the Drama network? Still confused about that part.

Thank you. I have submitted a request so I will keep a lookout for the network. At this time, Crown media does not mention who will carry the new network which I find a bit odd because the launch date is about 2 weeks away.

I understand, and thank you for submitting your feedback to us. I am sure we will get this network on Comcast sooner than later. Please continue to check their website and back with us for more information on when this channel will become available.

I received a response from an employee who says they don't have any info just yet so we just have to wait and see. Hallmark themselves do not list any provider info yet which I find to be odd because how do you launch a new network with no provider info? Who is offering the network?

At this time Comcast doesn't have an agreement with Hallmark to broadcast this new channel.  Actually, not very many companies have an agreement with Crown Media to broadcast it.  No ETA on when Comcast will add it.

Please make sure to escalate our interest in Hallmark Drama Channel to the appropriate department.  I'm sure many more are interested in having it in the lineup especially as you already carry the first two Hallmark channels.  thanks.

Re: will comcast air the hallmark drama channel

The answer I got today from them is evidently not just now they will not.  I think this is too bad as the other Hallmark channels are great, but not sure it is not due to the Hallmark Channel itself.  They have been known to release its programming to only some venues or providers (PIXL channel = only DISH)  and they are very close mouthed about this channel.  If you call you are forwarded to a messaging board and cannot get to a human to talk about it.  

 

I think this is really not a fair thing to those who have supported and watched their programming for years and the two channels they have now on Comcast have gotten progressively worse on their programming (24 hours straight of old shows) and less and less of the wonderful movies they are known for.

Re: Hallmark Drama Channel

Yes, since it appears a lot of the movies will be moving over to the Drama channel.  I don't understand why they need another channel.  I would think the original Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries should be enough.  I feel I spend A LOT OF $$$ for cable and this channel should be included at NO EXTRA CHARGE.  There are a lot of channels I do not need...I do not need the Spanish channels (although I think it is great for those channels to be offered), I do not need the 'adult' channels, I do not watch a many of the channels included in with my subscription...but Hallmark channels are the ones I enjoy the most.  Xfinity needs to step up and offer it or provide a reason why they are not going to offer it.  I am afriad When Calls the Heart and other series may be on that channel as opposed to the ones they are on now.

At this time Comcast doesn't have an agreement with Hallmark/Crown Media to broadcast this new channel.  Actually, not very many companies have an agreement with Crown Media to broadcast it.  No ETA on when Comcast will add it.  And Crown Media isn't announcing who will be able to broadcast this network.  You would think with all of the interest they would have reached out to companies to broadcast this new channel, but apparently they are still considering their options.

Re: Hallmark Drama Channel

I was told today that Hallmark Drama channel is only being seen online, but yet it shows channel 185 as Drama but its showing exactly whats on regular Hallmark. So after getting off phone I got on my tablet and it will not let me download channel, in my searches I saw that it is on Spectrum so why not on Comcast?....and why add channel if your not going to show it?

At this time Comcast has no agreement with Crown Media to carry HDC.  As a matter of fact, few cable providers have a carriage agreement.  Crown Media isn't sure what they really want to do with this channel.

Re: Hallmark new channel

Hi 040 and plpalmer1 -- Thank you for your interest in this channel. Hallmark has said that they have not made plans, or at least have not announced them, to have this channel available for live TV viewing. That said, I have made a channel request for each of you for this channel. Channel requests do not guarantee the channel will be added but it does help us gauge interest and helps us with negotiations should Hallmark want to make this channel available for live TV.

Zach,

            They do plan to make Hallmark Drama live TV because ttheir website here : hallmarkdrama.com provides a channel locator however the channel locator has yet to be updated with channel numbers. It was announced in the news articles that they plan to make it a linear channel. The channel locator provides a submission form to let them know who might be interested in the network however the submission form itself does not appear to have a secure connection so it may not be safe to use?
