If your holiday plans include curling up on the couch and watching Hallmark Christmas movies, yes, there’s now an app for that.
Lovers of these cheesy films ― which Hallmark began airing before Halloween this year ― can view premiere dates and tune-in times in the app as well as find information about the cast and even trailers. For those who really don’t want to miss out, there’s also an alert feature so fans can get reminders about the movies they’re interested in watching.
Twenty-two of the new movies make up the “Countdown to Christmas” series on Hallmark Channel. The other 15 make up the company’s “Miracles of Christmas” series on its sister channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
With a record-breaking 37 titles this season, it’s clear Hallmark has no plans to pull back on its original holiday movies, despite the running joke that they all follow the same formula.
And although they still overwhelmingly feature white main characters, this year’s films have also sparked headlines about Hallmark featuring fewer white protagonists with actresses like Christina Milian, Tatyana Ali and Tia Mowry-Hardrict taking on lead roles. One of the most notable stars making Hallmark’s 2018 holiday season merry and bright is music legend Patti LaBelle with her role in “Christmas Everlasting.”
