Hallmark Drama HD is in test mode on channel 564
That might make my wife happy.
why put that in hd extra pack / MOVIES EXTRA PACK?
That's only the channel number, the specific packages haven't been announced. In addition to Movies Extra, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries a while back was added to Premier, and the lesser alternative packages Select, Entertainment and I think Family, chances are Hallmark Drama will get similar treatment.
the Hallmark Drama website says it is SD that is on 564 and N/A for the HD version.
It doesn't matter what their lookup says, it IS their HD feed in test mode:
D14, TPN 11, VPID 1040:
564 *HLDRM Hallmark Drama HD
The newest Hallmark network draws viewers in with its cinematic programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
It says the same thing about the local cable company Fidelity Communications where I live it says it's only available in SD but that's not true cuz it's actually only available in HD here so their site is wrong

what is the heck is cheddar tv?
It's a streaming business news channel that was added to channel 354 today. Check their their website for more info.
It's carried as a genie only app channel the same way 110 Santa Tracker, 799 iHeartRadio, 800 Music Choice TV and 1117 Entertainment Extras are where they all point to the same logo slate on D11/TPN3/VPID 1070, while the actual content comes over your internet connection.
Hallmark Drama HD is now on 564. Any idea as to when we’ll get the rest of the Encores in HD?
So regardless of the content delivery method, is it the content of the linear channel? If so, I'll add it to my HD chart for DirecTV.
for those that can see programming on hallmark drama, what package do you have? I have the pref xtra but cant see it. but I can see the other 2 hallmark channels. anyone know what package its in? on 564 I get a ppv error "this showing is past its purchase window" message.
I have the legacy Choice Xtra Classic (not sure of the wording and spelling). I also have the HD Pack of the programming which begins on channel 565. Hallmark Drama HD has shown up for me.
just chatted with directv. seems for now its only in the hd extra movies pack. I ended up getting it for a 3 month trial. wife is happy....
That movies xtra pack is a racquet. Nickel and dime the customers more why don’t they. I got rid of it. There’s enough other stuff to watch and don’t have time for all of that either. I used to have it for music (mtv live). But between concerts on audience network and music choice app, no longer need it.
DirecTV is far from the only provider who has a HD addon package like this. Dish has many of the same channels in their $10 Dish Movie Pack, locally Blue Ridge has many of these channels in their $12.95 HD+ pack, in the next county over Service Electric has them in their $9 HD Extra pack and RCN has them in their $9.99 Premium High Definition TV Suite, and other providers like Mediacom have them in their HD Pak.
At least this way anyone who wants them can add them no matter what base package they have, instead of being forced to get a higher tier base package like Xtra, Ultimate or Premiere. (i.e. with Optimum in order to get MGM HD and Sony Movie Channel you have to upgrade to their Silver tier that also includes HBO, Showtime and Starz, while many of the other channels are one step lower in a tier that also includes Starz Encore)
anyone get a weird message on cheddar tv? like this channel can't be viewed on HR34, please upgrade to HR54 to view this channel
Like mentioned earlier, it's delivered via a streaming app over the internet similar to the santa tracker, iHeartRadio, Music Choice and Entertainment Extras. The HR34 stopped getting feature updates a few years ago, so it and the Hx2x don't support it.
