I would like to have it added to the line up too.  Direct TV already has it.  So what is taking Verizon fios so long

If you want Hallmark Drama (which is on every major provider Except for Verizon and many other providers as well) the best bet to request it through Hallmark Channel using this forum https://www.hallmarkdrama.com/channel-locator.

I really hope they get it soon since they are the only major provider that doesn't have it and there are LOTS of Hallmark fans like myself out there.

I see that Comcast has it.

Cox only has SD and Spectrum doesn't have it.
So a mixed bag.

Verizon has not yet added.

Not sure how many of the majors have either.

I am looking for the new Hallmark Drama channel also and hope it will be added to the FIOS lineup soon. I also watch Hallmark, and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. Love them both!

I would also like to see the Hallmark Drama Channel added to the Fios lineup. In addition, when will Fios add TCM in high definition? It is the only major cable operator that doesn't carry the channel in high definition.

According to their wikipedia page, hallmark drama still has very limited carriage.  Dish does in SD. But basically no one else

Hallmark is advertising a new Hallmark Drama channel and say to contact your service provider to see if they carry it, but I can find no way to send an email or call them.  Hallmark does not give the call letters so I don't know what to ask.

Help.

I am not sure Hallmark Drama has lauched yet.

Most people say when they check their area, no providers are carrying this channel yet.

According to the TV ads, Hallmark Drama launched Oct 1.  Still don't have an email where I can contact Howard County MD FIOS to see if they carry it or plan to.

Verizon does not respond to requests about channel carriage.

And even though they said it has launched, I don't see a single cable company carrying it.

Have tried their  channel locator for various zip codes around the country. Don't see a single cable company listed.

Most wikipedia pages for channels list companies that carry it.

It doesn't list any.

Maybe try reaching out to Hallmark to see what their rollout plan is.

I'm on the same quest to see when Hallmark Drama will come to FIOS.  I found the following locator.   Unfortunately, it appears that none of the providers in my zip code offer it.

Have you read the previous posts in this thread?

I'm getting the impression that Verizon studiously avoids reading these posts.  I just did a search for Hallmark and, in my service area, it shows two:  Hallmark HD and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.  In some facets of calble delivery, FiOS is outstanding.  The ability to get answers on this site is definitely not one of them.  

I wish us all luck.  That appears to be the only thing that will help.

Because this forum is set up as a peer to peer support forum.

Verizon does not monitor or respond to posts here.

I would like to know as well.  The other 2 Hallmark channels are my favorites.

So a quick google search showed the following:
1) Looks like other provider forums are being flooded with people asking when their provider is going to carry this channel. Answer is usually they don't know.
2) Going to Hallmark channel locator, they show NA for all providers. Except they say it is available on Sling Now and DirecTv now.
Looks like it may be a while (if ever?) on traditional providers.

And I saw on another forum someone posted they have SlingNow and it wasn't showing up there yet.
