Just checked the Directv site and the only package with both the LMN and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channels is the Premier package. The LMN channel is also in the Xtra package but that package lacks the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. The thing is the Select package has every channel I need except for LMN. Is there any add on pack with LMN that can be added to the Select package?

I think Hallmark Movies is part of the HD Extra package that was like $4.99 p/m ... the rest you should already have.

If this might help the OP, according to this post back in 2016 (unless it's changed) HM&M is (also) included in Select, Entertainment, Preferred Xtra, and Premier channel packages without the HD Extra Pack.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in base packages now?
I thought that anything in a package was in the next package up as well .... but when I looked at the channels mentioned, I got them all except for the HM&M as it showed I could order it if I wanted it ... I have the Ultimate package so you would think it would also be available already ....

You have a steaming box? Lifetime movies has an app that is a few dollars a month. Not sure it’s everything on LMN though

That's right, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries is included in the Select package and so is every channel I need except for the LMN channel. Have you noticed the price difference between the Select package at $78 and the Xtra package at $117? I'd be paying $39 just for the LMN channel plus another $5 for the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel that's included in the Select package but missing from the Xtra package. $44 for two almost basic cable channels? I could add all the premium channels for that much. Dish has both of these channels in their Top 200 package which costs little more than the Select package.

You just mentioned this above...HM&M is only 1 example where you CANNOT assume this. Which is why it's even MORE difficult for the "general public" to figure out exactly how to pick out what package meets their needs. ;)
EG: The "hidden" Preferred Xtra pkg, that excludes many sports channels that ARE in lower tiers. ;)

You would think so but the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel is only included in the Select, Entertainment and Premier packages. And the LMN channel is only included in the Xtra package and above.
