What is Hallmark Movies Now?
Hallmark Movies Now (HMNow.com) is the Hallmark Channel's app. Hallmark, of course, is known the world over for both its heartwarming greeting cards and made-for-TV movies and series that span romance, family drama, and mystery genres. Hallmark Movies Now offers a 7-day free trial; thereafter a monthly subscription is available for 5.99 USD per month, or 59.99 USD per year (billed at 4.99 per month). Starting in October 2022 HMNow's "Movies & Mistletoe" package will offer 150 Christmas movies, with new content available rolled out weekly.
The Hallmark Channel, on the other hand, airs live programming—including new Christmas movie premieres. The Hallmark Channel is available on cable as well as all major cord-cutting services such as YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream, fuboTV, Hulu, Philo, and Peacock. From late October through Christmas both The Hallmark Channel and its sister channel (Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) will air Christmas content around the clock.
Meanwhile, the free streaming platform Pluto TV has its own live "Hallmark Movies & More" channel, which doesn't necessarily carry the full slate of 2022 Hallmark Christmas movies, but does air plenty of Hallmark content and has dozens of delightful Christmas movies on demand. In November 2022 Peacock also added a dedicated Hallmark hub, with all Hallmark content available both live and on-demand.
How to watch Hallmark Christmas movies
The Hallmark Channel started producing original Christmas movies in 2000, and gained such a strong following that in 2009 it launched its popular “Countdown to Christmas.” Countdown to Christmas 2022 begins on October 21 and will air 40 new original Christmas movies throughout the holiday season, in addition to other popular favorites from years past. Hallmark Christmas movies are renowned for their comforting (some might say predictable) plots and corny titles ("We Wish You a Married Christmas"), and often star popular sitcom actors and actresses from the 1980s and 90s for a healthy dose of nostalgia.

Perfect. Unlike other VPNs that took forever to stream anything, with ExpressVPN I never notice a difference at all. It takes a lot to make me happy but this did it for me.
Have been using this service for two years now... it's infallible. Works with every app and streaming service. Uptime is good, no stuttering or delay on streams.
This is the first VPN service that doesn't slow down or buffer my streaming services while I'm at home. I appreciate that and thank you all for doing it right!
