How to watch Hallmark Christmas 2019 movies, with or without cable – OregonLive

The Thanksgiving turkey hasn’t been served, but the Christmas TV crush is already on. For example, the Hallmark Channel — as much a part of the holidays as festive wrapping and family gatherings — didn’t even wait for Halloween to kick off its “Countdown to Christmas,” the annual TV movie extravaganza.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of “Countdown to Christmas,” and 2019 brings a total of 40 new movies, which air on the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

The new movies are just the frosting on the sugar cookie. Fans can also watch Hallmark holiday movies from previous years 24 hours a day on the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, with a cable or satellite subscription.

Cord-cutters have options, as well, since Hallmark movies are also streaming on assorted platforms. Here’s a guide to 2019’s new titles, and information on how to watch them.
