Hallmark may have made its name in the greeting card business, but it's also in the business of making made-for-TV movies. Hallmark's feel-good favorites can be as wholesome as its greeting cards (and, sometimes, as predictable). They range from Christmas movies with feel-good endings to horror and mystery movies with… well, still relatively happy endings, really. Hallmark knows what it's good at, and what it's good at is making highly watchable made-for-TV movies. And, thankfully for us cord cutters, made-for-TV doesn't mean made-for-cable. Hallmark Channel may be an archetypal cable-movie factory, but it's surprisingly non-traditional on the streaming front. Hallmark Channel live streams are available from some major skinny bundle services, and Hallmark has a streaming service of its own, too. Here's how to watch Hallmark Channel without cable.

A few of our favorite ways to stream the Hallmark Channel:

How to Watch Hallmark Channel Online Without Cable

There are a few different ways to get your hands on a Hallmark Channel live stream or on-demand Hallmark Channel movies, but they are not all totally dissimilar. Several fall into one category: skinny bundles. Longtime readers will recall that a skinny bundle is a type of streaming service that looks and feels quite a bit like cable. Skinny bundle subscribers get live streams of multiple network TV channels bundled together in a way that is reminiscent of cable or satellite – only the bundles are generally smaller, and the prices generally lower. You'll see a few skinny bundles on the list below, though they're not the only things you'll see: we'll also introduce you to an on-demand streaming service that is owned by Hallmark itself. Ready? Let's dive in.

Stream the Hallmark Channel for free with Philo

Free Trial

Don't care about sports or news? Just want to watch The Hallmark Channel? Then your best bet is Philo, the super-skinny bundle that offers the lowest prices around. Philo has The Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries! On top of that, Philo offers a free trial. Click the link above to get it, or get more information from our Philo review.

Stream the Hallmark Channel for free with fubo TV

Free Trial

fuboTV came into being as a soccer-focused streaming service, but those days are long behind it now — this skinny bundle includes plenty of non-soccer and non-sports channels, including Hallmark Channel and sister channel Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. fuboTV offers a free trial that is 7 days long. For more details on the service, check out our review of fuboTV.

Stream the Hallmark Channel for free with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV is a skinny bundle that works slightly differently from its peers. While most skinny bundles opt for a tiered system, Sling TV goes all-in on add-ons, allowing subscribers to build out custom bundles. The base packages have different channels and, in some cases, different add-ons. Building a package with Hallmark Channel in it is a breeze. For more on Sling TV, read our Sling TV review.


AT&T TV Now, the live TV streaming service from AT&T, includes a Hallmark Channel live stream. We took a close look at this service in our AT&T TV Now review. You can check the service out yourself by signing up for AT&T TV Now's free trial offer.

Hallmark Movies Now

Hallmark Movies Now was originally known as Feeln, and that's the name it had back when we reviewed it. Whatever name it goes by, though, Hallmark Movies Now is unmistakably a Hallmark property. This on-demand streaming service boasts a broad selection of Hallmark's original movies – the same ones you can catch on the company's two channels. Hallmark Movies Now will run you $5.99/month ($4.99/month if you sign up for the annual plan). If you're not sure whether or not you want to shell out the cash, good news: Hallmark Movies Now has a free trial, so you can find out risk-free. You have 7 days to make up your mind before Hallmark starts billing you for your subscription.

Buy Hallmark Movies Individually

The list above is all you've got when it comes to Hallmark Channel live streams and unlimited on-demand streaming. But you can still watch Hallmark movies on your computer without any subscription service at all, provided you're okay with buying those movies one by one. Hallmark gives its original movies' digital releases on major online services like Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes, so you can always just head to one of those sites and make a purchase. Owning digital copies means you can watch your films whenever you want and never have to pay a subscription fee, but it also, of course, means that you'll have to buy each one individually.

    Where can you watch Hallmark Mysteries on TV without cable or satellite?

    1. Avatar says:

      DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, and Sling TV offer Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

  2. Avatar Debbie says:

    Is there a way to record movies from any of these OTTs?

    1. Avatar says:

      Hi Debbie,

      fuboTV and Sling TV offer cloud-based DVRs, so you can record movies using them.

    2. Avatar Becky says:

      I have always supported Hallmark and recommend them to many people, but sadly even with paying extra for both channels I cannot record any of the great shows because I have a busy life and used to be able to record them. I have DirecTV and pay extra for the two channels. We refuse any of the so called movie channels due to not wanting the language or sexual content, but there isn’t any added value if I can’t watch it around my schedule.

      1. Avatar Robin Reed says:

        Go to because there is a way to save a program for a few days so you can watch it later. I am not able to afford directv but last summer when I had it (and so did my sistere) we looked it up on the website and was able to save movies and programs for a few days till we could watch them.

  3. Avatar Ella Mae Collett says:

    Would love to know when new “When Calls the Heart” will return?

    1. Avatar Amy says:

      There will be a Christmas movie like they did last year, then season 5 will start in February.

    2. Avatar Teresa says:

      Hoping Netflix gets season 5 of When Calls the Heart, and Heartland season 11. I live in Australia. Or where can I see them?

      1. Avatar Helen Woodward says:

        I have the same question, we in Australia are left high and dry when it comes to new series, it makes viewing unbearable. Like Bates Motel and When Calls the Heart on Netflix, so unfair!

  4. Avatar Dave says:

    My AT&T U-verse bill is ridiculous! Account charges $4.29, U-verse $165.10 (U450), internet $67.00, land line $48.69 = $285.08.

    We watch Hallmark channels, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and need a decent internet connection. We never watch sports. Do any providers let you opt out of sports channels?

    What do you recommend?

    1. Avatar Anonymous says:

      If you have not done so, please cancel ATT Uverse. $285, ouch.

      Get Internet only = $50 / month
      YouTube TV = $60 / month

      And streaming of your choice, Netflix, etc = $15.00

      Total = $125

  5. Avatar Donna says:

    Does Sling have the Hallmark TV series as well? Such as Chesapeake Bay?

    1. Avatar Suzanne says:


    2. Avatar Angie says:

      Sling is a live streaming service. Hallmark will be the same on it as it is on cable or satellite.

  6. Avatar Marguerette Vanvakas says:

    We are on just SS but love the Hallmark Channel. We have a Fire Stick and NO cable. What is the best way to pick up the Hallmark Channel as the Holiday movies will start soon and we both enjoy them? Can anyone make a suggestion that won’t cost a lot.

    1. Avatar Angie says:

      Sling TV. $25.00/month ($20.00 for the Blue package and $5.00 to add the Lifestyle package that includes the two Hallmark channels), and you can cancel after Christmas. No contracts. Also check into the Access internet program from AT&T for low income families. Just $10.00/month!

    2. Avatar Jackie says:

      Marguerette, simply look up the app referenced in the article, Movies Now, in your App Store on the Fire Stick and sign up. I believe the article stated it was $5.99 per month or $4.99 per month if paid annually. I downloaded the CW app for free shows, too. Many channels have an app that doesn’t require a cable login or paid subscription, simply internet to stream by. 🙂

      1. Avatar kdt says:

        Hallmark Movies Now should be called Hallmark Movies “Then” because all the content is at least two years old. If you want to watch the new programs, then this will be a big disappointment.

        1. Avatar Jan white says:

          I did this and cancelled before my free weeks were up. Very misleading!

        2. Avatar Anonymous says:

          YES… absolutely correct. I cancelled when I found out that the new movie releases were not on “NOW” !!

    3. Avatar Donald C villers says:

      Philo TV its 16 buck

  7. Avatar Bill says:

    Does Sling TV have Chesapeake Shores on the Hallmark Channel?

  8. Avatar Maria J De Los Santos says:

    Does Sling TV have the new Hallmark movies to be aired Christmas? I have Sling. If so, how much would it cost to add the Hallmark Channel? As we are on limited income.

    1. Avatar Deb says:

      You can add the Lifestyle Extra pkg to your Sling for an additional $5/mo. Includes the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Lifetime, DIY, Cooking Channel, and others.

    2. Avatar Fields says:

      Yes, Sling does if you have the basic channels which are about 25-30 cable channels for $20.00 and entertainment channels – $10.00 ($3.00 tax) -, which include the Hallmark and Mysteries channels. It will cost you about $33.00 (tax included). If you want the DVR service, it will be $38.00 (tax included).

  9. Avatar Lynda Plank says:

    Can you use Sling TV with a smart TV?

    1. Avatar says:

      Sure! It’s available for Android TV, for example.

  10. Avatar Sylvia Thevissen says:

    All good ways to watch Hallmark but one thing is not mentioned. What if you have no address in the US to use? They all need a card with a zipcode or also an address.

    1. Avatar says:

      You’re right. These skinny bundles are, unfortunately, only available in the US.

  11. Avatar Irene says:

    You know, cord cutting is great, but you really have to watch yourself in getting all these additional “bundles” or you could be paying for more than cable or satellite itself.

    1. Avatar Amy says:

      I was thinking the same thing!

  12. Avatar Mary says:

    Can I watch Hallmark Mysteries & Movies using a Fire Stick? How much per month would that be?

    1. Avatar says:

      You can! DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, and Sling TV offer Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Sling TV is your cheapest option. With the Sling Orange package ($20/month) combined with the requisite Lifestyle Extra ($5/month), you can get Hallmark movies for $25/month.

  13. Avatar Don Andersen says:

    Or just get channel Pear. You can add up to 5 channels to your library for FREE. I have TLC & Hallmark as well as TV-Land & The Weather Channel. If you go over 5, it costs $25 a year.

    1. Avatar Trying to Cut the Cord says:

      Hey Don, would you elaborate on this a bit? I’ve signed up with channel Pear. How do I add networks?

    2. Avatar Carol says:

      Is this still available? Is it available on a fire stick? I can’t find it.

    3. Avatar Anonymous says:

      What is channel pear hope do I get/find it

  14. Avatar Sammie says:

    Netflix does have SOME Hallmark movies.

    1. Avatar Trina Hirst says:

      Yes, but since the new Hallmark Movies Now channel they will no longer have that relationship with Netflix.

  15. Avatar Beverly Robinson says:

    I have the Sling TV bundle for $24.99 a month. I have downloaded the Hallmark Channel to my Roku. I do not have a cable provider. Am I able to watch Hallmark movies through Sling TV? Please advise, thank you.

  16. Avatar Jennifer says:

    Does Hallmark Movies Now show ALL of the new movies? And do they show them at the same time they’re aired on TV, or do you have to wait? I want to watch some of the new Christmas ones this year.

  17. Avatar Claudia Smith says:

    I have Sling TV, the Amazon Fire Stick, and internet through CenturyLink. I can not get the Hallmark Channel and it’s driving me crazy! I need my Christmas movies! Please help!

  18. Avatar Beverly Roney says:

    Got DirecTV but coz don’t have HDTV can’t get Movies and Mysteries.

  19. Avatar Jerri Coates says:

    I am trying to Chromecast The Hallmark Channel. I have tried the iPad app as well as from Chrome web browser. The Chromecast option is not available. How can I use Chromecast. I have Charter Cable and am signed into my app via Charter.

    1. Avatar Alan says:

      Only option is to cast the Chromecast to desktop. Hopefully you are wise enough to know how to do it using the home app from a smart phone or tablet. Otherwise, on a laptop your best bet is to Google. I have no clue how to cast the desktop from a laptop or desktop unless it has Chromecast option for casting on the Chrome browser. You may need to get help for that. I plug a laptop directly via HDMI and a PC via the older VGIA cables on a older HD TV.

  20. Avatar Michele says:

    I lack electronic understanding. That said, I have two residences. Can only be at one or the other at any given time. If I have for example Sling TV do I need an account for each address or will one work for both? Do I need a Roku to make this work or just Wi-Fi, or?

    1. Avatar says:

      One account will be enough, and you don’t need a Roku.

  21. Avatar Karen says:

    Any options for Canadians yet?

  22. Avatar Mary & Kevin says:

    My husband and I have Spectrum Cable, Roku, and Netflix. We’ve held onto cable for the Hallmark Channel, DIY, and local stations for news. If we cut cable, Sling TV sounds like a good option for our entertainment, but as we like to watch local news daily and college football on the weekend, is that an option, or not? If not, what would you suggest?

    1. Avatar Trina Hirst says:

      I feel like you can get that with Sling TV. I liked Sling TV when we first cut out our cable. My husband likes PlayStation Vue… I hate commercials so I don’t watch it at all.

      1. Avatar Stephanie says:

        Does Sling let you skip commercials?

  23. Avatar CC says:

    CenturyLink Stream also has Hallmark and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries but they are a bit pricey at $45.00 ($5.00 add on price included for the Hallmark stations). I subscribed with Direct TV Now, since I had a half off for two months code.

  24. Avatar Louise says:

    Are the Hallmark channels available through Hulu with Live TV?

    1. Avatar Trina Hirst says:

      Sadly, no. 🙁

  25. Avatar Jennifer says:

    I signed up for ‘Hallmark Movies Now’, but it appears to only have OLD movies. I was under the impression I would be able to see at least some of the new Christmas movies coming out.

    1. Avatar Trina Hirst says:

      Jennifer, I agree, it is super disappointing.

  26. Avatar Brandon says:

    Same here Jennifer. Hallmark Movies Now isn’t the latest. We were after the Christmas movies too.

  27. Avatar Trina Hirst says:

    Can we talk about how this new Hallmark Movies Now is horrible?

    The movies are OLD (back to the early 80s), very few newer movies, and if you had Feeln it is really the same just a new name. There was a lot of hype about how AMAZING this was going to be, but it surely fell short. It is disappointing that the quality that Hallmark is known for fall’s very short when it comes to streaming.

  28. Avatar Cheryl D says:

    Ditto the comments about Hallmark Movies Now. Still on the free 7 day period but will cancel today. It’s just the old movies (and not really the good ones). I can check most of them out at my library on DVD. I thought it included Hallmark and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries show. NOT! Extremely disappointed in Hallmark Movies Now.

  29. Avatar Stephanie says:

    Agree with Trina and Cheryl. What good is Hallmark if it doesn’t have the new movies all year long by seasons like the commercials say!

  30. Avatar Myra Chevalier says:

    Is there a way to get all the new Hallmark releases when you are unplugged?

  31. Avatar Wend says:

    I canceled my Hallmark Channel on my Roku because it was not the same as the Hallmark Channel Movies & Mysteries. A huge disappointment… Most of the movies were old movies… Disapointing… If you try I suggest sign up for a monthly trial first… You can always upgrade…

    1. Avatar says:

      Wend, what service did you use? All of the skinny bundles listed here also include the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

  32. Avatar Donna Hill says:

    It’s very disappointing that Hallmark is not up to date on streaming. We cut our cable and have Hulu. We chose this because we can get all of our local channels with Hulu on our Fire Sticks. I miss my Hallmark channel. Hallmark needs to get in this century.

  33. Avatar Cher says:

    I would sign up for the streaming TV services. AT&T Watch streaming service has two out of the three Hallmark stations for $15 a month. Downside, no DVR, but it’s the cheapest option, plus includes other stations. If you have AT&T Unlimited service, it is free.

  34. Avatar Cathy says:

    Will Hallmark be coming to Hulu?

  35. Avatar Buffyfan2Billion says:

    How is “skinny bundle” any different than cable? I still have to pay for a bunch of stuff I don’t want, to get the one thing I do want. When is Hallmark going to name their price and let us buy the content a la carte? Movies Now is a bunch of old crap and Amazon has only a small percentage of Hallmark movies for purchase.

  36. Avatar Mark says:

    We dropped Comcast 6 months ago, including internet. We use cell signals and stream from phone to TV with a dex or a lightning cable device. Most streams allow such screen mirroring, but hallmark movies blocks picture even on Sling or Frndly. I don’t know how, but they do. Anyone know of a skinny bundle group that will let it work?

  37. Avatar Ron says:

    The Hallmark Channel is available on the streaming service FRNDLY.
