The Hallmark Channel and AT&T U-Verse
I received an e-mail from Amy, one of my blog followers, in regard to AT&T U-verse not carrying the Hallmark Channel. Even though I do not personally have this cable provider, I long to help her and others with their mission to encourage U-verse to carry the Hallmark Channel again.
Here is the e-mail I received:
Thank you for your fun, wholesome blog!
But, many of us don't get to watch all the great movies and shows on the Hallmark Channel because we have U-Verse, and it is very, very frustrating! I spoke with a nice lady from the Hallmark Channel last week, and she said that getting back onto U-Verse is their #1 goal this year. I am so glad to hear that!
She suggested that I try to get everyone I can to click on the link below and fill out the very short channel survey, which lets people request the Hallmark Channel on U-Verse:
Anyone can take the survey it appears - even those who don't subscribe to U-Verse.
Anything you can do to help publicize/support/get the word out about this would be so appreciated!!
The more people who contact AT&T and take the survey, the better. I also emailed the CEO, firstname.lastname@example.org and think that is another great thing for people to do to voice their desire for them to carry the Hallmark Channel.
Thank you, thank you. God bless you! Amy"
Here is a statement from the Hallmark Channel, regarding this issue:
"Attention AT&T U-verse customers, we are stunned AT&T has dropped our networks and has been misleading its customers by telling you they are fighting for you. We want everyone to be able to see our family friendly programming. We would never deny our loyal viewers the chance to enjoy our original movies, series and specials. AT&T needs to hear directly from their customers that they care about family friendly programming. They need to hear your voice on the phone!" (The Phone Number to call is: 1-888-MADE-4-FAMILY)
I hope this is helpful information for all of you who are hoping to have the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel return to U-verse.
Please be certain, to take the survey, here: http://uversechannels.att.com/channel-survey and take a few minutes to give them a call at 1-888-MADE-4-FAMILY, and share with them that you want family programming back... you want the Hallmark Channel to return to AT&T U-verse.
Hope this helps you, Amy, and many other AT&T U-verse Subscribers, in your endeavor!
*UPDATE - Merger News: AT&T has agreed to buy DirecTV for $48.5 million. I hope this means we will get to keep the Hallmark Channel on DirecTV, too!
