It’s no secret that millions of people across the United States watch Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies. After all, they make you feel good and put you in the Christmas and holiday spirit.
This year, Hallmark Channel is celebrating its 10th anniversary of having their Countdown to Christmas special. The movies over the years have been on both Hallmark Channel and their Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channels.
Hallmark Channel will be airing 25 new original movies this year. The first original movie for the 2019 Christmas and holiday season (on their network) will air on October 26. To see the full movie list and schedule, see the photo below.
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will be showing 16 other new original Christmas movies for the Christmas and holiday season this year. Those will be considered the “Miracles of Christmas” TV movie series on that channel. The schedule for those films can be found below.
To make it even more fun, there is also a Hallmark Movie Checklist app for those who want to do a checklist of all the movies they want to watch on the network, and to make sure that they see them.
So what are the best ways to stream these movies this year?
Frndly TV: The best and cheapest method is going to be through Frndly TV. This service starts at only $5.99 per month and goes as high as only $9.99 per month.However, the only downside to it is that it currently does not have a tvOS app for the Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K, so in order to watch movies on the big screen from this streaming service, you’ll have to either AirPlay it from your iPhone or iPad, or use a device like an Amazon Fire TV or Roku device, where you will be able to find the app on there. It also includes Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, which will also be carrying mystery-related Christmas movies this year.
VidGo: This is a new streaming service that only costs $14.99 a month and has Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama
Philo: This is another great service that costs $20 a month and includes all of the Hallmark Channel. Where the service shines is through its unlimited DVR, meaning that if you need to, you can record specific movies from your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, and then watch it on one of those devices later.
AT&T Watch TV: At only $15 a month, this is not a bad service either to go with for watching Hallmark Christmas movies this year. It includes both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Mac and Apple TV.
Hallmark Movies Now: With this service, it’s not going to be your Netflix version of the Hallmark Channel. Yes, you can stream Hallmark Christmas movies from it, but they will not be the new ones that premiere this year. Instead, they are movies from the network’s past. You can get a subscription through iTunes too for only $5.99 a month, but the service is not on Apple TV Channels, as of this article release.
PlayStation Vue: To get just the Hallmark Channel, you will have to pay $54.99 a month for Vue’s Core Plan. If you want both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, you’ll have to pay for the Elite Plan, which is $64.99 a month.
Sling TV: This service costs $25 per month, but you’ll have to pay an additional $5 per month for the Lifestyle Extra in order to get both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, making it $30 a month total.
AT&T TV NOW: Hallmark Channel is available on this service for $50 a month. Note that it is different from AT&T Watch TV since AT&T TV NOW does have way more channels to it, whereas AT&T Watch TV does not (only 35 channels).
