Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
When you think of Hallmark movies, you probably think of feel-good content that’s great for casual viewing. The Hallmark Channel has built a brand on such movies. They’ve provided almost as many roles for actors as the Law and Order TV shows. Heck, Meghan Markle even appeared in one or two of them. And The Hallmark Channel has a streaming option: Hallmark Movies Now is an on-demand service that airs both brand-new original movies and content that previously aired on The Hallmark Channel.
But can you get Hallmark Movies Now for free? We’ll answer that and more below, so keep reading to find out everything we know about the Hallmark Movies Now free trial.
Yes, you can get a free trial of Hallmark Movies Now. Free trials are vital to the survival of streaming services, especially ones that fly a little more under-the-radar. Hallmark is a relatively well-known brand, but Hallmark Movies Now doesn’t quite have the same cachet as bigger brands like Hulu (which offers a free trial) or Disney+ (no free trial). For many customers, a free trial could be their first sustained exposure to the brand. That’s a real win-win for Hallmark Movies Now and streamers like us!
You may be able to lose a guy in 10 days, but you don’t get that many days on a Hallmark Movies Now free trial. You actually get seven days to watch as much of the Hallmark Movies Now content as your heart desires.
Jokes aside, seven days is a common length for these free trials. It gives you a chance to see what the streaming service is all about, but it doesn’t give you enough time to watch every single romantic comedy available.
Yes, you will get billed automatically by Hallmark Movies Now once your weeklong trial is up. In 2020, it’s almost unheard of for a streaming service not to bill you automatically. Setting up free trials in this way allows services to get your payment information once, then keep charging you until you opt-out. You won’t get an emailed invoice, and you definitely won’t get a card in the mail from Hallmark reminding you that payment is due. You’ll just be charged every month.
Of course, that’s no problem if you love Hallmark Movies Now. In fact, it’s very convenient — you don’t have to do anything at all in order to turn your free trial into a regular subscription.
But what if you decide not to keep Hallmark Movies Now? If you don’t want to be charged once the free trial is over, that’s no problem: Just set a reminder on your phone so that you don’t forget to cancel, and look below for more information on that process.
How much Hallmark Movies Now costs depends on whether you pick the monthly or annual plan when signing up. If you choose the former, you’ll pay $5.99 a month. If you opt for the annual plan, you’ll pay $59.99 a year, but that payment will be made all at once rather than every 30 days. It’s up to you to decide which plan makes the most sense for your streaming needs.
You’ll find lighthearted love stories on Hallmark Movies Now, but there’s one thing you won’t find: contracts that lock you in and charge you an early termination fee for canceling. While it’s great that Hallmark Movies Now doesn’t have contracts, you should know you won’t be getting any partial refunds on the streaming service if you decide to cancel.
Instead, you’ll have access to the service until the end of your billing term. If you’re billed monthly, that won’t be more than a few weeks. If you’re billed annually, you might have to wait a few months before Hallmark Movies Now disappears from your life like a long-lost high school sweetheart who’s (plot twist!) now a widower and single dad. Oh, and he’s moving back to your hometown after all those years in the big city.
There are three possible ways to cancel Hallmark Movies Now, but the simplest option involves logging into the Hallmark Movies Now website. Check out our page on how to cancel Hallmark Movies Now for the scoop.
Hallmark Movies Now is more of a niche streaming service than one with broad appeal to a lot of people. We wrote a complete Hallmark Movies Now guide that you should read if you’d like to learn more.
You should also know that this streaming service used to go by the name “Feeln,” which (we think!) was pronounced like “feeling.” But apparently, that didn’t make enough people feel anything, so it changed to Hallmark Movies Now. That’s probably for the best.
