The holiday season is here and that means Hallmark is rolling out its Christmas programming. From the lighting of the National Christmas Tree to the premiere of 21 new holiday movies, Hallmark brings the Christmas spirit into our homes. You don’t have to miss out on the Hallmark Channel if you don’t have cable.
Check out our guide to learn how to use Hallmark Channel Everywhere or the Hallmark Movies Now subscription service to watch Hallmark programming this holiday season. If you need to download Hallmark movies to watch on the road, you can find that content from your favorite online stores. Finally, you can plan your Christmas with Hallmark with our complete guide to the network’s Christmas movie premieres.
If you replace your cable subscription with Sling TV, DirecTV Now or fuboTV, then you automatically get live streams of all the Hallmark Channels. You can also register your account with Hallmark to get all of the on-demand features of the Hallmark Channel Everywhere apps.
Hallmark on Sling TV
Neither the $20-per-month Orange plan or the $25-per-month Blue subscription plan includes Hallmark in the Sling TV channel lineup. You must pay the extra $5-per-month subscription for Sling TV’s Lifestyle Extra. That also gets you live streams of the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

Hallmark on DirecTV Now
Subscribers to DirecTV Now’s Live a Little plan get live streams of both the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies for only $35 per month. Strangely enough, you lose access to Hallmark Movies when you upgrade to any of DirecTV Now’s more expensive plans.

Hallmark Channel Everywhere device support
Being a subscriber to any one of the above streaming TV services earns you the same privileges you would get as a cable subscriber through the Hallmark Channel Everywhere program. All you need is the login and password for your service provider to unlock live and on-demand content through Hallmark’s apps.
Mobile/Tablet: iOS and Android
Set-top box: Apple TV and Roku
Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari (macOS), Internet Explorer 11 (Windows) and Edge (Windows)
Even if you don’t have a subscription to one of the streaming TV services Hallmark supports, you can still get the Hallmark Channel’s content – for a price. Hallmark Movies Now is a subscription service that offers ad-free access to Hallmark’s library of movies and TV series.
Getting Hallmark Movies Now
Hallmark Movies Now will cost you $5.99 on a month-by-month basis. The $59.99 annual plan will reduce those monthly costs by a dollar. That actually gives you many more options for watching Hallmark content than it does Hallmark Everywhere members.
Mobile/Tablet: iOS, Android, Amazon Fire Tablet, Windows Phone, Windows Surface
Set-top box: Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Chromecast
Smart TV: Samsung (2015 models and later), Android TV (LGE, Sony and Freebox) and older Sony TVs and Blu-ray Disc players (2013-2015)
Gaming consoles: Xbox One, NVIDIA Shield, Razer Forge TV
Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari (macOS), Internet Explorer 11 (Windows) and Edge (Windows)
As with most streaming services, the Hallmark Movies Now service is only available within the United States. Once you leave the country, Hallmark cuts off your access.
Even if you’re traveling out of the country this holiday season, you don’t have to miss out on a Hallmark Christmas. You can purchase Hallmark movies from many online media stores and download them to your favorite mobile devices.
Hallmark’s YouTube channel only includes previews, clips and extras from its programming. The only full-length Hallmark programming you’ll find is the 3-hour long Hallmark Channel’s Holiday Yule Log stream. It’s the next best thing to having an actual fireplace.
Amazon Prime members can buy recent Hallmark movies like last year’s Operation Christmas for $12.99 and older titles for less. The Amazon Video app for iOS, Android or Amazon Fire devices lets Prime members download select titles for viewing on the go.
Apple’s iTunes includes titles like last year’s A December Bride. Hallmark’s most recent movies cost $12.99 to own while older titles sell for as little as $6.99. Apple lets you download movies for offline viewing through its iOS apps as well as through the iTunes app on Macs and Windows computers.
The Google Play store has about forty Hallmark movies available to purchase for $9.99. Google Play only allows downloads to iOS, Android and Chromebook devices.
The Fandango Now site isn’t as easy to search as Google Play, but you can find a few dozen Hallmark movies in the Fandango Now catalog selling for about $9.99. Fandango Now lets users download titles to its app on iOS and Android devices for offline viewing.
National Christmas Tree Lighting
The National Park Service will conduct the 95th annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree from the The Ellipse in front of the White House. Among the entertainers who will perform at this year’s ceremony:
Us The Duo
Boys II Bow Ties
The U.S. Navy Band
The ceremony itself happens on November 30, but the Hallmark Channel has exclusive rights to broadcast it on December 4.
