Hallmark Drama Channel...?

Hallmark Drama Channel

Any idea when this channel is coming to Xfinity? It’s been available for almost 2 weeks now and as far as I can see it isn’t there.

The channel locator at hallmarkdrama.com now has a feedback form however the submission form does not appear to have a secure connection so I don't know if I would submit my info?

Re: Crown Media Hallmark Drama Channel

Hi cherylwehr -- Hallmark Drama announced that they have not made any plans to have this channel available for live TV viewing. Should they decide to make this available we will speak with them about having this channel added.

As of now Comcast doesn't have a contract with Crown Media to carry this channel - few carriers do, in fact.  There is no ETA on when this will happen.

True, however how do you launch a channel with no providers/carriers?

Comcast currently does not carry this channel and does not have an agreement with Crown Media to do so; very few cable providers carry it because at launch Crown Media wasn't sure how they wanted to distribute this.

You will have to ask Crown Media that.


Is there an email where a consumer can receive a response from them? No provider info doesn't do us any good if you're launching a channel but no one can watch.

Re: HALLMARK DRAMA CHANNEL

People here in an official capacity are posting incorrect information.

 

Hallmark Drama does indeed intend to seek carriage as a cable network, like Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Some providers have started carrying the channel, including Service Electric Cable TV, Cincinnati Bell, Full Channel, C Spire and NorthState Communications. While these are small providers, the channel does exist in both SD and HD.

 

While there may be no announcement regarding this from a major provider like Comcast, the channel is certainly available. Comcast, and others, may choose to not offer it due to cost, bandwidth, etc.

It would make sense for comcast to carry  the new network because they already carry the first 2.

Jessie,

            Some of us have submitted a request because hallmark is asking consumers to contact their provider. Doing so however does not provide us with a status update regarding the requests.

Admin1

Re: Hallmark new channel

Hi RadTV -- Channel requests are used to track channel interest only. These requests do not have status updates since they are for tracking only. They do not guarantee the requested channel will be added as broadcast agreements much be reached first however they do help us with negotiations for adding the requested channels.

DirectTV is telling its customers that they are in negotiations with Hallmark to carry this channel.

Che,

        Customers are asking because Hallmark is running an Ad asking consumers to contact their provider to add the channel.

Comcast does not offer this network at this time.

 

Please note that this is a message board and responses are not immediate.  It is also a primarily a customer-to-customer Help and Support forum with a few Comcast Official Employees posting when needed.

Again is correct. Others and myself have submitted a request however there has been no further news.

Dish is currently carrying the network at the moment according to their website. Why no further progress has been made? I don't know.

Re: Hallmark Drama

To contribute to this topic, I just followed the link on the prior page of comments to this thread to request Comcast/Xfinity add the Hallmark Drama channel.  Pretty frustrating that putting in the request allows for NO application of an email to get a response!

 

it is now NINE months since Crown Media made this channel available to tv providers - NO reason for Comcast/Xfinity to STILL not have it available!

 

And no, I DON’T want to go the route of paying a monthly charge to stream it on my iPad!

 

Comcast/Xfinity - PLEASE ADD HALLMARK DRAMA!  It’s available from Crown Media - where you get the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries from
