It’s Hallmark Christmas Movie Season! The vacations wouldn’t be complete without the network’s dozens of cozy new vacation-themed movies, but what if you want to watch them without a cable subscription? While you won’t find your Hallmark favorites on the biggest streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu, you can still watch all of the most anticipated Hallmark vacation movies of the year without having to subscribe to a traditional cable plan.
The most direct way to watch original Hallmark movies is to simply sign up for Hallmark Movies Now, Hallmark’s own streaming service. As the name suggests, this is a quick and easy way to get direct access to Hallmark’s film library, as well as TV shows and specials from the Hallmark Channel and its spinoffs. “Films and mysteries”. The only problem? Most new movies don’t appear on Hallmark Movies Now right away, so it’s a great choice for watching your old favorite movies, but not so much if you’re looking for all of this year’s latest movies. You can also subscribe to the Hallmark Movies Now “channel” as an add-on to your Amazon Prime membership.
Another option is to subscribe to a “cut the cord” type streaming service, which offers access to many TV channels that you would normally get with cable, but without having literal cable service. Broadcasters such as Sling TV, Fubo TV and Philo offer Hallmark Channel as part of their packages or as add-ons. These options allow subscribers to “watch TV” live, as well as on demand, meaning even the latest Hallmark Christmas movies are available here!
For those of us who still appreciate the benefits of physical media, some Hallmark Christmas movies can also be found on DVD. As with the Hallmark Movies Now option, however, the selection can be a bit patchy and this year’s new movies certainly won’t be available right away. Still, it’s something to keep in mind. There are many ways to make your movie watching happy and bright this year; just choose the one that suits you best!
