Hallmark’s feel-good movies can be as wholesome as its greeting cards — and sometimes as predictable (in a good way). They range from Christmas movies with feel-good endings to horror and mystery movies with, well, still relatively happy endings. Hallmark knows what it’s good at, and what it’s good at is making highly watchable made-for-TV movies.
Thankfully for us cord-cutters, “made for TV” doesn’t necessarily mean “made for cable.” Hallmark Channel may be an archetypal cable-movie factory, but it’s surprisingly nontraditional on the streaming front. Hallmark Channel livestreams are available from some major streaming services, and Hallmark has an on-demand service of its own too. Here’s how to watch Hallmark Channel without cable.
How to Watch the Hallmark Channel Without Cable
With the holidays just around the corner, the Hallmark channel is as necessary as eggnog and twinkling lights. If you’re craving Hallmark movies but you don’t want to pay for cable, you have two main options.
First, you could subscribe to a live TV streaming service. These services are a lot like cable or satellite, except they stream online, work on tons of devices, and don’t lock you into long-term contracts. Plus, some are a lot leaner and cheaper than cable, which is why they’re sometimes called “skinny bundles.” These services can give you a Hallmark Channel livestream, and many also include Hallmark Channel’s spin-off cousin, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
If you don’t care about live TV and you would rather choose what you watch and when, then you could also consider Hallmark Movies Now, the on-demand streaming service that comes straight from Hallmark.
Below, we’ll list all your options for watching Hallmark Channel and your favorite Hallmark movies online:
