Got Hallmark Channel? Sling Does Just in Time for Christmas Specials

At $25 per month for Sling Orange and Lifestyle Extra, Sling offers least expensive way to stream Hallmark Channel

When I decided to cut the cord a year ago and ditched DIRECTV satellite for DIRECTV NOW, my wife’s one requirement was the Hallmark channel. Check.

Well its payback time now as Hallmark is featuring wall to wall Christmas dramas to put you (and my wife) in the spirit of the season. Hallmark channel includes original movies and special programs like the “National Christmas Tree Lighting” on December 5. Oh well, at least I can get some work done while my wife binges of Hallmark. But I digress…

Sling TV added the Hallmark channel last month and currently represents the most affordable way for cord cutters to receive the channel.

This week, you can catch the debuts of original movies like “With Love, Christmas” (Nov. 22), “The Mistletoe Inn” (Nov. 23), “Finding Santa” (Nov. 24), “The Christmas Train” (Nov. 25), and “Switched for Christmas” (Nov. 26). Check out the full schedule of the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas.

  • Note: There is currently no Hallmark app for Apple TV or Roku devices. DIRECTV NOW does offer 72 hour rewind on Hallmark channel. You can access the Hallmark channel app on your iOS devices.
