Please note: I do not personally have the PixL station, therefore I have not previewed any of these movies above, although this station is known for playing family safe films!

  1. Cool. $1.99 a month or $14.99 a year isn't bad. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Hey Net, hope you are doing well? I thought you'd like to know that I received an email this morning from INSP that Dish Network is cancelling them from their lineup. They don't understand why that is, as it's free to Dish. They don't have to pay for it. I thought maybe your readers who have Dish might like to flood them with emails.

  3. Thanks for posting about this channel. Always good to hear about more family friendly movies. So glad so many channels are being created and we're getting more options now.

  4. I love this channel. You never have to worry about your children watching it. No commercials is awesome. I wish Hallmark channel would do this.

  5. I subscribe to it via youtube.

  6. I've really been enjoying their new movies and seeing some of my favorite faces

  7. I also subscribe via YouTube and find it a fantastic value at only $14.99 a year, and it's all family-friendly programming. I even have anytime access to some of my favorite Hallmark movies from past years.

  8. I really enjoyed Casa Vita

  9. So excited that "When Duty Calls" is showing on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries! I don't have PixL so I'm happy to see some of their movies showing up elsewhere. I'm definitely not going to miss the HMM premier in March. Thanks so much for this tidbit!!

    1. I was excited to discover this PixL movie news, too, and share it, Anonymous!

      I also don't have the PixL station, so I'm hoping this may be the first of many on HMM!!!

      We'll have to keep a look out for (hopefully!) more!!!

    2. I don't have PixL channel also. I'm so exciting if there more PixL movies on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

  10. This is great news about When Duty Calls.

    I'm just hoping that Change Of Heart will maybe get an airing on HMM too at some time.

  11. One of the most pleasing aspects of this is that even though it is airing at the beginning of March and on HMM it helps to fill a gap since the main channel is only showing one new movie in this month.

    I would personally like to see a more equitable schedule. They could perhaps have 2 or 3 fewer at Christmas and show them at times like these.

    It could even be a Christmas-themed one - if they can show a Christmas movie in July they could even show one in March!

    At least it ill be an opportunity to delve into the rewatch pile!!

  12. I've seen When Duty Calls. It would be nice if they showed it on the main channel though where there are more viewers

  13. I saw "When Duty Calls" recently and I didn't like it as much I liked "The Reluctant Nanny". I felt that the sequence of scenes was too choppy. Also, there was not enough focus on the mystery of the movie as I would have liked. Because the reveal of who was causing the burglaries came a little too early in the film, it seemed to take the fun out of trying to solve the mystery. I do hope that more PixL movies are shown on television to give people more of a variety of what PixL has to offer.

  14. Watched Casa Vita (retitled Love Throws a Curve) on UP TV today, very nice movie! -Maria
