With 41 brand new Hallmark Christmas movies for 2021 (27 on Hallmark Channel and 14 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries). It’s the biggest season of Hallmark Christmas movies yet. Watching all 41 is a huge undertaking, but by starting in October – before Halloween – it CAN be done. Who’s with me?!

Hallmark Christmas Movies Premiere Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Big change for this year. I was excited to see that *most* new movies will premiere on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from October 22 through December 19. That will help me remember to correctly set the TV to record all of the premieres. (I definitely missed some of those Wednesday night premiers last year.) The exception is Thanksgiving weekend when movies on the Hallmark Channel start on Thursday night and run double-hitters on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 6 pm and 8 pm EST.

***Important information you need to know. At the time of this post, Hallmark has only released 40 of 41 movies. For now, this will be an evolving printable. As Hallmark confirms the names of the movies and when they will air, the checklist will be updated. That means that if you choose to download it now, I highly recommend that you come back later to download a newer, more updated list.***

How To Watch Hallmark Christmas Movies

Since we got rid of cable years ago, watching Hallmark Christmas movies can be a challenge. But there are options for streaming Hallmark Christmas movies. If you don’t have cable to watch your Hallmark movies, you can watch via these streaming services.

  • Frndly TV – Frndly TV is a streaming service that offers 40 family-friendly channels including Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama. With Frndly TV, you’ll be able to watch all the new releases as they air on cable, plus shows on-demand, so you can binge-watch some of your favorite Hallmark movies all season long for $6.99 a month. Frndly TV works with Apple, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast, and you can cancel your subscription anytime. (This is the service I have used for the past two years and already have set up for this year.) Want to see if Frndly TV works for you, try the FREE 7-day trial.
  • Hallmark Movies Now – You can get a seven-day free trial of Hallmark Movies Now, and then pay $5.99 per month to watch Hallmark Movies. Here’s the catch, Hallmark Movies Now will not be streaming any of the new releases. Instead, you can catch up on old favorites. The upside is that you can cancel at any time. So whenever you’ve had your fill, you can cancel your subscription. (I’ve used this in the past, I didn’t like the functionality as well but it may have changed.)
  • Sling TV, AT&T TV, Philo – If you already use Sling TV, AT&T TV or Philo for your streaming service, just add Hallmark Channels to your current package so you can watch Hallmark movies in real time. On Sling TV the Lifestyles package includes Hallmark Channel for $6 a month.

Hallmark Christmas Movie Activities

This year, I made a fun BINGO game to go along with my Hallmark Christmas Movie watching. If you watch Hallmark Christmas Movie alone, you can make it a silly challenge to take a sip of hot cocoa each time you find a BINGO square or take a bite of a Christmas cookie.

If you host a Hallmark Christmas Movie watching party, you can pass out BINGO sheets to your guests and see who gets BINGO first. (Don’t worry, it won’t take long!)

The Hallmark Christmas Movie BINGO is now available in my Etsy shop.

Hallmark Christmas Movie Checklist 2021

Hallmark Christmas Movie Schedule Checklist free printable includes all 41 movies. The movies listed at 6 pm and 8 pm are the Hallmark Channel movies and the movies listed at 10 pm are those airing on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. If you plan to accomplish the whole list, you will need double checkmarks in each box – perhaps red and green pens are in order. (ALL TIMES ARE LISTED IN EST/PST.)

Of course, my problem will be getting sucked into movies from other years that are either favorites or ones I’ve missed. Ahhh so many movies, so little holiday season. It’s a good thing we get to kick off our movie watching in October.

Let’s get our cozy ‘jamies on and curl up for some Hallmark Christmas Movies!

    • HI! I offer two easy ways to download the printable. One is delivered directly to your inbox for free the other is via Etsy for $1.99 both deliver the printable directly to you within minutes.
