Need more holiday cheer? Hallmark Movies & Mysteries adds another nine to the list.
Hallmark has more than one network, you guys, and they’ll be premiering nine additional movies on their Movies & Mysteries station. It’s a little more difficult to get (especially if you don’t have cable) — but it could be worth it for the holiday season. You can get the channel usually as a live TV package add-on, but it rarely comes in a standard package. Also, if you want to see snippets of the Hallmark newbies, go to the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries calendar.
Here’s the lineup for 2023 Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ Miracles of Christmas event:
- Ms. Christmas Comes to Town (Oct. 26)
- My Christmas Guide (Nov. 2)
- Mystery on Mistletoe Lane (Nov. 9)
- A World Record Christmas (Nov. 16)
- A Season for Family (Nov. 22)
- Time for Her to Come Home for Christmas (Nov. 30)
- To All a Good Night (Dec. 7)
- Heaven Down Here (Dec. 14)
- Miracle in Bethlehem, PA (Dec. 21)
If you don’t have cable, you can stream the 2023 Hallmark holiday movies.
If you have cable, chances are you’re already set for Hallmark Channel (and Hallmark Channel Television). But if you don’t, there are a few options to stream the Hallmark movies.
- The best deal we found is getting the $7.99 per month Frndly TV subscription service, which offers 40+ channels with live and on-demand options. This includes the regular Hallmark Channel and the Movies and Mystery sister channel. You’ll also get access to the History Channel, Lifetime, A&E, Lifetime Movie Network, and more.
- Another deal is via Sling TV. You gotta add the Lifestyle Extra package, which includes the Hallmark Channel and the Movies & Mysteries channel. It’s an extra $6 per month on top of the base Sling subscription, which starts at $40 a month.
From Oct. 20 until New Year’s, it’s Hallmark Christmas movies all day, every day.
On the Hallmark Channel, you’ll get a new movie every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8 p.m. ET in October, November, and December. Look for new movies on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET from Oct. 26 to Dec. 21. Christmas everlasting while we prep for Black Friday? Yes, please.
Watch Hallmark’s older holiday hits on their very own streaming service.
You can sign up for Hallmark Movies Now for just $5.99 a month (plus you can get a free trial week). The bummer is that you won’t be able to watch new Hallmark movies, just those from previous years.
If you enjoy Hallmark’s touchy-feely glory all year, sign up for a 12-month subscription for just $59.99 (that’s a 16% savings). Or you can just buy the movies you can’t live without.
Need even more of the Hallmark vibe? Netflix and Lifetime have tons more rom-com holiday movies to add to your watch list.
Netflix even has a shortcut so you don’t have to spend tons of time scrolling. Use the genre code 1394527 or head to this link and it’ll take you straight to the romantic Christmas movies section. You can also cruise to general holiday movies with genre code 107093. There you’ll find a bunch of Netflix originals for the season.
For Lifetime, you can add the Lifetime Movie Club channel for $4.99 on Prime Video or Hulu to access dozens of Christmas movies. I’m keeping my eye out for new-for-2023 “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” films, which haven’t been announced yet.
