Hallmark Media, formerly known as Crown Media Family Networks, operates three leading cable networks – Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama – and a subscription video on demand streaming service, Hallmark Movies Now. The company is also home to Hallmark Hall of Fame , one of the most beloved, acclaimed, enduring movie franchises in television history.
Hallmark Channel, owned by Hallmark Cards, Inc., is Hallmark Media’s flagship 24-hour cable television network. As the country’s leading destination for quality, feel-good entertainment, Hallmark Channel delivers on the 100-year legacy of the Hallmark brand. The network’s lineup of signature original content includes movies, primetime scripted series, and specials. Dedicated to helping viewers celebrate holidays, seasons, and life’s special moments, Hallmark Channel is home to a host of annual programming events, including the highly successful Countdown to Christmas, which has become a pop culture phenomenon and a beloved holiday tradition for millions of viewers. Rounding out the network’s slate are some of television’s most classic comedies and series, including The Golden Girls, Frasier, and Reba.
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, the second 24-hour linear channel under the Hallmark Media umbrella, is a leading destination for quality entertainment. True to its name, the channel brings the lighter side of the suspense and mystery genres into focus with rich, dramatic, and thought-provoking storytelling. The network’s programming lineup features a unique mix of new, original movies, presentations from the acclaimed Hallmark Hall of Fame library, and such time-honored acquired series as “Murder, She Wrote,” “Matlock,” “Hart to Hart” and “Diagnosis Murder”. The channel hosts the annual holiday programming event “Miracles of Christmas,” which helps viewers celebrate the season with new, original movies and holiday favorites. The network is also home to programming franchises Mahogany and DaySpring, both rooted in iconic Hallmark greeting card lines.
Launched in October 2017, Hallmark Drama joined Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as Hallmark Media’s third linear cable television network. Featuring an unduplicated lineup from its sister networks, the channel evokes the legacy and spirit of the iconic, award-winning Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise with engaging, dramatic storytelling. In addition to fan-favorite Hallmark Hall of Fame titles, the network showcases an array of movies and series from Hallmark Media’s vast library of original dramatic content.
Hallmark Movies Now is a Hallmark Media subscription video-on-demand streaming service, which offers commercial-free, feel-good movies and series from Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and more, including exclusive content you can’t find anywhere else.
The most-honored program in the history of television and born in the era of fully sponsored television programming, the Hallmark Hall of Fame has stood the test of time and has been largely responsible for elevating the Hallmark brand to the status of an American icon. For more than 60 years, the Hallmark Hall of Fame presents original films that entertain, enlighten and inspire.
