Crown Media Family Networks operates three family friendly networks in the United States, in addition to a publishing company, a streaming movies service, and airing the endearing Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.
Hallmark Channel is Crown Media Family Networks’ flagship 24-hour cable television network. The network features an ambitious lineup of original content, including movies, scripted primetime series, and a daily, two-hour lifestyle show, “Home & Family.” Additionally, Hallmark Channel is the exclusive home to world premiere presentations of the acclaimed Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise. Dedicated to helping viewers celebrate life’s special moments, Hallmark Channel also offers annual holiday programming franchises including “Countdown to Christmas” and many other seasonal offerings.
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, the second 24-hour linear channel under the Crown Media Family Networks umbrella, is one of the fastest growing networks in cable and a leading destination for quality, family friendly 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 is also home to the annual holiday programming event “Miracles of Christmas,” which helps viewers celebrate the season with new, original movies and holiday favorites.
Launched in October 2017, Hallmark Drama joined Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as Crown Media Family Networks’ 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 Crown Media’s vast library of original dramatic content.
Launched in 2017, Crown Media Family Networks’ publishing division, Hallmark Publishing, recreates the rich storytelling from Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ beloved movies as eBooks, audiobooks, and paperbacks. From sparkling romances to intriguing mysteries, including original titles by USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors, Hallmark Publishing offers a whole new way for viewers to engage with Crown Media’s stories and characters. In addition, Hallmark Publishing will adapt existing books into new original movies. Hallmark Publishing’s books can be found on Amazon, iTunes, Rakuten Kobo, and at retail and online stores.
Hallmark Movies Now is Crown Media Family Networks’ subscription video on demand streaming service. Launched in October 2017, the service is a distinct offering with a lineup of unique, feel-good programming that cannot be found on the company’s linear networks, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies, & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama. Subscribers to the service have access to nearly 1,000 hours of commercial-free Hallmark-branded original content, including fan favorites from the vast Hallmark Hall of Fame library. The service is available on iOS, Android, Roku, and Amazon Fire with the option of a monthly or annual subscription.
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.
