  1. What does "Starting Monday, July 23 – Tuesday, July 3" mean in the paragraph about Hallmark Movies Now? Those dates make no sense. How can it be July 23 - July 3rd? (And just in case they meant to say August 3rd instead of July 3rd, August 3rd is not a Tuesday. It's a Friday.)

    1. I believe the press release from Hallmark should read Monday, July 23 - Tuesday, July 31. The number "1" was simply left out, or it was a typo.

    2. I'm wondering if the "Hallmark Movies Now"Christmas week is going to have a lot more Christmas movies added to their list that they have now as a special for this particular week or is it just the ones they currently have plus those two extra ones.

    3. That is an excellent question, Jim. I don't have Hallmark Movies Now, so I'm not sure how it works, but I have seen them advertise lots of wonderful movies in their collection from Hallmark and elsewhere. Perhaps, they will be releasing further details on what will be available then.

  2. I was hoping Christmas Card,Crown for Christmas,Christmas with Holly,some of the old one too

    1. Oh, I'm sure there will be lots more Christmas movies added to the list! "Christmas with Holly" is already scheduled to air Saturday June 30th at 11:00 PM EST.

      So far, no air times for "The Christmas Card" or "Crown for Christmas" have been released, but it's very possible they will be included! :)

    2. Yes I was surprised "The Christmas Card" wasn't included being that it was the favorite movie last year

  3. Wasn't Falling for Christmas originally aired on UP?

    1. Yes, "Falling for Christmas" with Niall Matter ("Engaging Father Christmas") originally premiered on UP! I've noticed Hallmark's streaming service has lots of non-Hallmark type movies from the theater or other networks, including the series "Heartland" and the UP movie "Runaway Romance" with Trevor Donovan.
