DISH Network's New "Heartland Package"

For all of you who have the DISH Network, I thought you might be interested to hear this exciting Family TV News.... According to the DISH Network's TV Blog, they are now offering, for an extra $5 a month, an extra package of TV Channels that includes Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movie Channel, GMC TV, PixL, RFD-TV and, starting later this week, Rural TV.

Wow! Sounds good to me! Come On... DirectTV - we want the same thing now, too! Especially the Hallmark Movie Channel and PixL - both are great stations that play Family-Friendly movies. According to DISH, PixL is the first true family-safe 24/7 premium movie channel. They provide safe programming like original movies, miniseries, and series that inspire and tug on the heart strings. The best part of this channel is the no commercial interruptions.

So, why is it called the "Heartland Package"? Senior vice president of Programming at DISH, Dave Shull, gave this comment. “Parents want to be involved and watch TV with their children, and the Heartland Package brings the whole family together around this combination of family-focused networks.

According to Multichannel News, the Heartland Package -- includes movies, classic TV series, inspirational concert specials and rural lifestyle content. Dish also said the new content package includes GMC TV - home of the original family drama series Heartland... another reason for labeling it the "The Heartland Package".



Please Note: I have heard of conflicting news sources on whether it actually includes the Hallmark Movie Channel or not. If anyone reading this knows anything more regarding this news - please leave a comment below.

  1. Hallmark Movie Channel is available on DirecTV. I guess it's in their HD+ package which is an additional $5 a month. Much of their schedule is day long marathons of Murder She Wrote, Matlock, and the Hallmark Mystery Movies.
