Just when you thought that Hallmark Christmas movie marathons couldn’t get any better, the network had to go and announce some news that will make your holiday screenings all the merrier. Hallmark will drop a total of 40 new Christmas movies in 2019, Entertainment Weekly reported. So the channel is giving fans plenty of reasons to rejoice this year, indeed.
The first of their new Christmas-themed flicks will air in July. That gives you plenty of time to soak in the holiday spirit.
According to Entertainment Weekly, 24 of the new movies will air on the Hallmark Channel and 16 will premiere on its sister channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. So, basically, you’re going to want to be tuned in to both to really make the most of the holiday season. And if you can’t watch them live, make sure to record them on both channels!
Once the July screening dates have passed, the Christmas movie entertainment will resume in October, as is tradition, for Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas.

Hallmark in the business of making the holiday season all the more special and this recent announcement only serves as further proof that the channel will go above and beyond for its fans.
Last year, not only did the Hallmark Channel have all of its usual programming leading up to Christmas, but the TV channel also teamed up with SiriusXM radio to play holiday tunes 24/7.
And clearly, that was only the beginning of giving fans what they truly desire — even more Hallmark in their lives!
The Hallmark Channel is the gift that keeps on giving.
Who’s tuning in to all 40 new movies to come in 2019?
