When do Hallmark Christmas movies start?

Hallmark starts its Countdown to Christmas early in 2021, with a premiere date of October 22. That’s right, even before we’ve thrown our Halloween parties, Hallmark wants us to start roasting chestnuts and chopping down Christmas trees.

Of course, you can always DVR your favorites and watch them later if the start of the Hallmark Christmas season is a bit too soon for you.

How many new Hallmark Christmas movies will be available?

Hallmark knows that some of its most fervent viewers tune in during the holidays, so the service has announced that it will be introducing 41 new Christmas films this year.

If you plan on watching all 41 films, be sure to stock up on eggnog and popcorn. And, of course, for those of age, a dash of the good-stuff can add to the seasonal warmth.

If you pay for traditional cable or satellite television, or subscribe to a live tv streaming service, you can satisfy your holiday fix by tuning into the official Hallmark Channel.

As the channel number may change depending on your cable provider and region, we recommend using Hallmark’s Channel Locator tool to discover it.

If you don’t subscribe to a live television service, our top recommendation for watching the Hallmark Channel is Frndly TV. For $5.99/month, you gain access to the Hallmark Channel to watch all of your Holiday favorites.

Best of all, with Frndly TV, there is no contract, so you can always sign up just for the holiday season, then cancel your subscription once the new year reigns.

Amazon Video members can also add the Hallmark Movies Now channel to their subscription for an additional $5.99/month.

Download the Hallmark Checklist App

With so many movies hitting the Hallmark Channel for the holidays, you’ll need a bit of help scheduling your popcorn-munching, movie-snuggling time.

Luckily, Hallmark Channel has the Checklist app for iOS and Android.

You can download the app to your favorite mobile device and keep an eye on all upcoming holiday movies for the season.

Additionally, new widgets allow you to place the Hallmark holiday movie schedule right on your smartphone or tablet’s home screen with only a few clicks.

Now that you know what's coming up on the Hallmark Channel for the holidays, check these out next.
