  1. I’m using it now and it’s awesome! I’ve signed up for my account and have been bringing in fat paychecks. For real ADw, my first week I made $304 and the second week I doubled it and then it kinda snowballed to $120 a day.…..

    Just follow the course>>>>>>>> CareersToday100.Com

  2. First I love Hallmark channels both of them, but they have made a mistake airing Christmas movies in October. I would like to celebrate Halloween, then Thanksgiving, I understand Christmas movies are shown in November, but could It be the middle of November and of course December to show Christmas movies. I’m sorry, but that’s how I feel

  3. Christmas movies before Thanksgiving is bad enough, but before Halloween??? Why??? Your station sucks for months!!

  4. Are you kidding me, Christmas movies now until Christmas, are you trying to drive people away. That is ridiculous. I like watching your channel but will not watch it now for 2months.

  5. I love the Countdown to Christmas movies. Hallmark you are awesome. Keep showing these movies for the ones that love them.

  6. I love both your channels. I watch the mysteries n movie one more. But the movies I have been seeing during the week days n nights are the ones I have already seen. Is there not going to be any new ones for this channel? I like this channel bc there are not any sitcoms shown which air on your other channel. I would like to see new movies. It was a blessing last year for me helped get thru Christmas alone. Thx A. Anderson

  7. For those who don’t like “Christmas movies” in October, think about this, the message of these movies shouldn’t be confined to one month or one season a year.The themes of giving, love, and joy should ‘ve shared year round. THANKS
    Hallmark for presenting uplifting movies!

  8. Hallmark has totally removed The Christ Child from the Christmas movies this year. We do not even hear Silent Night in any of them. A few years the Christmas movies were wonderful. Without Christ, there is no Christmas. The only thing left of Christ in Christmas, is His name.
