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.

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

$74.99 - $94.99 220+ 7 days Watch Now

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:

Can I Watch the Hallmark Channel on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. Myra Chevalier says:

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

  6. 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. says:

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Cathy says:

    Will Hallmark be coming to Hulu?

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Ron says:

    The Hallmark Channel is available on the streaming service FRNDLY.
