Here are all the ways you can watch Hallmark Christmas movies, including if you don't have cable!
How to Watch Hallmark Christmas Movies Live On Television
If you want to watch in real time with your cable provider, check your local listings to see where Hallmark airs in your city. Luckily, Hallmark has gifted us with the full holiday movie schedule so you can plan your movie marathon lineup in advance.
Where to Stream Hallmark Christmas Movies
Hallmark Channel Everywhere is a free streaming service (available on the App Store and the Google Play store). All you need to do is log in with your cable provider info, and you can watch the Hallmark Channel live as it airs on your device. You can also watch a selection of movies and TV shows anytime. Don't have a cable provider? No worries! You can check out the limited selection of programs that are unlocked and are able to be watched without logging in.
If you want unlimited access to the latest Hallmark Christmas movie lineup, we can't blame you. Luckily, there are other ways you can watch Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries without a cable provider. There are a number of streaming services that allow you to watch live TV and recordings anytime, anywhere:
Peacock: For an easy $5/month, you can watch the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama live and on-demand via their app and PeacockTV.com. Test it out by signing up for a free trial.
fuboTV: For $70/month or with a free trial, fans can access to 138 channels, including Hallmark.
Sling TV: The streaming service is currently offering half off your first month. With the Sling Orange service you can watch Hallmark channels, including Hallmark Drama, as a part of the Lifestyle Extra package.
Philo: For the flat rate of $25/month, you can access shows, movies and live channels. And yes, that includes Hallmark channels, HGTV and Lifetime. If you want a quick holiday movie fix, you can test it out with a one-week free trial.
Youtube TV: This streaming service recently added Hallmark TV to the lineup. For $64.99/month you can access over 100 channels, including the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries at anytime.
Frndly TV: This is a great option if you're looking for a cheaper way to watch Hallmark movies and TV shows altogether. The streaming service offers over 40 channels, including all Hallmark options, at just $6.99 a month or with a free 7-day trial.
After the Movies Air
If you missed a movie or just want to watch one again (of course you do!), you still have options!
In addition to catching Hallmark Christmas movies live, Peacock allows you to watch new films on-demand up to 72 hours after their release.
FuboTV offers Lookback, a feature that allows viewers to watch previously aired content for up to 72 hours after the original air time.
With Sling TV, you can check and see if the movie you want to watch is on their On-Demand program, or you can record the movie on their Cloud DVR Plus, but it's an extra $5 a month for 50 hours of storage.
Philo also lets you save your favorite programs to watch up to 30 days later.
How to Stream Older Hallmark Christmas Movies
Unfortunately, you won't be able to find old Hallmark Christmas movies on Netflix or Hulu, but you can rest assured that some of your favorite classics are available to rent or buy through Amazon.
Another great option is Hallmark Movies Now which is a video subscription streaming service that focuses solely on movies. As the website states, you can find movie programming that doesn't air on Hallmark's channels, in addition to movies from the Hallmark Hall of Fame library. But while Hallmark Movies Now does air holiday content, it won't be the same as "Countdown to Christmas." The subscription service cost is $59.99 a year (which breaks down to $4.99 a month), or a monthly subscription available for $5.99 each month. There's a 7-day free trial to explore before officially signing up.
