The fireplaces are lit, the blankets are out, and the closets are filled with sweaters and jackets. What does that mean? All of this is a clear indication that the winters are finally here. And this consoling season brings with it a number of festivities that enlighten our lives and brighten our smiles. One of the many festivities is Christmas. We all wait impatiently for Christmas day and begin all the preps a month before the big day.
Decorating the house and tree in colors of red and green, getting Christmas presents for our friends and families, and adorning them with ribbons and sparkly papers really gives us positive vibes. However, this is not the only highlight of this season. Watching heart-warming Hallmark Christmas movies that too on the Hallmark channel can make your holiday season worthwhile.

We have written this article, especially for people who don’t have cable and trust us, we really want them to enjoy the holiday spirit. This article is basically a guide on how to watch and stream these movies. So take a sip of that hot chocolate, put on your reading glasses and keep reading.
Subscribe to streaming services
Several famous streaming options enable users to enjoy Hallmark attributes. One of these streaming services is Sling which gives you access to this channel at very affordable rates. Another option is Philo, which offers three Hallmark channels without being too harsh on your wallet.
Since we are discussing the prominent streaming services that give, you access to the popular Hallmark channel to enjoy Christmas classics, let us also talk about Frndly TV, which blesses you with content suitable for all ages and also offers the three Hallmark channels that too at economical rates.

- Purchase the ‘Hallmark Movies Now’ service
If you are avoiding the hassle and are looking for a simpler way to just gain access to a plethora of content that includes a variety of Hallmark films, purchasing the ‘Hallmark Movies Now’ option would be the simplest way out.
The icing on the cake, you can watch more than 1000 hours of classic Hallmark films, many of which are Christmas-themed, through an on-demand streaming service. This service provides you with two subscription options, which include annual membership and monthly membership.
One point to note here is that these memberships do not give you access to the live streaming option to the three prominent Hallmark channels and you would also not have on-demand access to the films that are launching on the said networks the same year.
Moreover, to determine whether the Christmas movies offered on this platform will be sufficient to carry you through the holiday season, you can utilize a free week-long trial.
- Gain access to the freebies
If you are not that selective about the kind of Hallmark Christmas film you wish to watch, you could easily get away, without even spending a single penny. The good news is that the Hallmark TV website provides you with a few free streaming alternatives on selected films.
Although there will be advertisements, this is essentially the same as watching a live TV channel. You won’t have nearly as many movies to choose from and to be very clear the best ones are hidden behind the paywalls anyway. However, take our advice. This would definitely suffice for a fun movie night.
- Enjoy the limited options available on YouTube
It is true that Youtube’s pay service does not give you access to the Hallmark channel; however, that does not mean you completely exclude YouTube from the list. The standardized free form of YouTube may have some excellent but limited options in store for you.
If you search the Hallmark Christmas films on the YouTube search bar, you will be surprised to find out complete films on YouTube like ‘A Christmas Cure’, which is available for free. However, since this is an unofficial upload, it might be taken down, so your results may vary.
- Try your luck with the unlocked content on the app
It is no surprise that the Hallmark TV application is made specifically for cable subscribers to utilize their financed logins to gain access to Hallmark content even while on the go. Moreover, if you are trying your luck at free Hallmark films, there is a high probability that you could achieve your goal by installing the application and getting familiar with all its options.
In order to give everyone access to the content behind the paywall, Hallmark will occasionally unlock some of the content on that application. In addition to this, you can easily download this app for Android and Apple smartphones.
Anything is possible with a bit of research. We have done the research bit for you and have tried our best to enlist the various ways you can enjoy the Hallmark movies this Christmas without being too hard on your wallet. Good luck!
