Hallmark fans without cable, rejoice! You can still get your Countdown to Christmas fix. Hallmark has announced a partnership with the streaming service Peacock TV. This means Hallmark fans can watch their favorite network at a fraction of the cost of a full cable subscription.
Between Countdown to Christmas and Miracles of Christmas, Hallmark will release 40 new movies during the holiday season. The films include sequels to Hallmark favorites and will star network regulars such as Alison Sweeney, Andrew Walker, Erin Cahill, Tyler Hynes, Kimberly Sustad, Marilu Henner, and Paul Campbell.
Watch Hallmark without cable
It has become even easier than ever to watch Hallmark without cable. Hallmark Media recently announced it has partnered with Peacock TV. The streaming service will have a Hallmark hub on its home page, with the network’s shows and movies available on demand.
“As we continue to make Peacock a premium streaming destination, Hallmark is exactly the type of brand we want to align with,” said Kelly Campbell, president of Peacock and Direct-to-Consumer at NBCUniversal, in a statement to Deadline. “Through this groundbreaking partnership, we’re giving Hallmark viewers a unique viewing experience while continuing to grow our audience, boosting engagement across both brands.”
The Hallmark hub on Peacock will feature live simulcasts of all three channels with some material available on-demand streaming the next day. A library of Hallmark movies will also be available.
“We’re proud to enter this partnership with Peacock and bring our widely beloved Hallmark content to their subscribers,” said Wonya Lucas, president and CEO of Hallmark Media. “The opportunity to provide our devoted fanbase access to all three of Hallmark’s linear networks will allow our audience to continue to grow and connect in meaningful ways.”
Peacock subscriptions can be paid on a monthly or an annual basis, starting at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. (Premium subscriptions cost more.)
