They have no distribution rights to the Canadian market. Like most other USA specialty channels. Like SYFY, TRU TV , TNT USA etc..

Hallmark Channel is a family-orientated channel, but also great for other audiences. Every year they create 12 new, original Christmas movies and air them each Sunday leading up to Christmas. I would be VERY keen on buying or having access to this channel that USA has. Thanks!

Think Rodgers has the rights to Hallmark Channel for eastern Canada....so why not available out here ??

CRTC determines what content is necessary for various channels to be available via Canadian distribution services. It is possible the Hallmark Channel does not meet this expectation.

 

Many US sports channels fall into the same exclusion from Canadian distribution.

I called Telus Communications and was directed here by a very helpful individual.  He said this is where I should share my suggestion for Telus to offer the Hallmark Channel.

 

Could you please look into getting this channel in your line-up as they offer very enjoyable movies.

 

Thank you

Unfortunately this channel  has no distribution in Canada and will never come here. The W network usually had some hallmark movies throughout the year though.

I've asked over the last year why we don't have the Hallmark channel.  Please Telus pick up this channel so we can watch all the holiday movies. We use to get a few of them on 4 times a year on ABC but now because Hallmark has created their own channel we don't even get that anymore.

As I posted a year ago, I believe Rodgers has the distributuon rights for Eastern Canada, so why would this channel not be available out here ??  It's a marvelous channel with a lot of family content....we need it !

Hallmark channel isn't distributed in Canada by any carrier. Some hallmark shows did air on Bravo, W etc.
