Commercials

Too, too many commercials. Hallmark must make a lot of money playing old shows over and over, and then breaking for commercials every few minutes. And the commercials are louder than the programming. Some of the commercials are so long, they are almost infomercials. I have been laying in bed sick for days watching the Hallmark mysteries and movies channel, subjected to constant interruptions of loud, long nauseating commercials about sick and severely hurt children, abused animals, and wounded veterans (warriors). While I have understanding and sympathy for these causes, why do they have to dramatize in such graphic, sickening ways, which go on and on and on. There must be a better way to raise funds. I finally just turn it all off, because it becomes so sickening. Then I try again later, because Hallmark does have some good, clean programming. Only to have to bear the same round of loud, lengthy, sickening commercials again.

TOO MUCH CHRISTMAS MOVIES

On the overall, I love your Christmas movies, but NOT from November 1 - January 1st. At least, wait until AFTER Thanksgiving!! There is a holiday that comes right before Christmas. Thought that family and thanksgiving was what the Hallmark Channel was trying to project and represent. WAIT until AFTER THANKSGIVING to begin your Christmas movies.

Something that is pleasant and enjoyable can be ruined by "too much of a good thing"!!! Please, also, stop playing the Christmas movies over-and-over again - so many repeats. Throw in some actual programming, and keep the movies just at certain special hours. Then we will look forward to seeing them.

Oh, and by the way, are we in the same experience again for Valentine's movies? Please do not ruin a sweet holiday with repetition!

Thank you!

Too Much Inane Holiday Programming and Too Many Commercials

The only reason that I watched The Hallmark Channel was to catch an early morning episode of "I Love Lucy." Even though the episodes were mercilessly hacked up for more commercial time, I still enjoyed an early morning laugh from good ol' Lucy and her pal's. Currently Hallmark is playing nothing but inane, sappy, christmas themed films that are about as entertaining as being in close quarters with someone who is lactose intolerant, who recently consumed a half gallon of whole milk! Those lame holiday Hallmark flicks STINK! Instead I wanna hear Lucy's silly wailing, Ricky strumming his guitar and beating his conga drum, and Ethyl and Fred's bickering. Come on Hallmark and cap the sap. Give us something to tickle our funny bones, and not the dross that makes us wanna heave!

Loud Commercials

During the holiday season, the volume level of the commercials are much louder than the volume of the movies. The FCC passed a law last year that prohibits this practice and I have filed complaints with the FCC regarding the Hallmark Movie Channel. I enjoy your channel, but it drives me crazy when the commercials are so loud that they wake up people in another room.

PLEASE TURN DOWN THE VOLUME OF YOUR COMMERCIALS!

What is it with Hallmark and people who decide not to have children or get married?

I just watched "Three Weeks, Three Kids" with my mother the other day, and I swear, that was the LAST STRAW. For whatever reason, Hallmark likes to make movies that criticize people for deciding not to get married or have children.

In "Three Weeks, Three Kids," the main character, Jennifer, is a free-spirited, career-oriented woman who prefers not to get married or have children. When her sister decides to go to Europe for three weeks, Jennifer offers to take care of her children, learning that it's not easy. But throughout the entire movie, Jennifer is constantly given back-handed compliments and criticisms about the fact that she hasn't settled down, and in the end, she does end up getting together with her sister's neighbor. This pretty much makes the moral of the story, "If you don't decide to get married and have children, you are irresponsible and too carefree." Jennifer's boss even straight up asks her so rudely why she has a problem with "responsibility."

It's the same with so many other movies. "Cupid and Cate" is another good example.

What's so wrong with an adult deciding that getting married and/or having children isn't best for him or her? Some people don't decide that because they "hate responsibility"; they just don't feel like they'll be able to handle it. What if they feel that they might screw up the marriage or the upbringing of the child? If you ask me, I would not want a child to be raised in a home where the parent(s) never looked forward to having him or her in the first place.

Heck, the reasoning behind their decision might not even matter! What if that person JUST DOESN'T WANT TO? He or she is a grown adult that doesn't need to be told how to live his or her own life.

Why is Hallmark so judgmental with people like Jennifer? So we can buy more of their wedding- and baby-related greeting cards? Well, no thanks, Hallmark, I'll pass.

Commercial content

STOP with the provocative/seductive commercials of women in provocative underwear and seductive perfume commercials. I was just now trying to watch a pleasant Christmas movie and that commercial came on and I immediately turned it and wrote this comment. I am SICK of seeing these when kids would more than likely be watching. How ridiculous!! I am not putting up with it anymore, and changing my channel to other Christmas movies this season. I a VERY angry and disappointed...I thought you were better and more considerate of families and their times together than this. I will spread the boycott news to my MANY family and friends.

Christmas 24

Could some body please tell me why at the end of every movie you split the screen to show what's next, therefore you can't read the cast, and as that's all most people really care about, not all the rest, 050153It's very annoying and you do it with every single movie, otherwise very enjoyable channel.

WHere are some of the old Christmas movies

I love your channel. Missing some of the old movies this year such as Christmas Card, Christmas Choir, Christmas Box just to name a few. If they have moved to the Hallmark Movie channel that is a bummer as do not get that channel.
Most of the new ones are great but you keep showing them over and over again. Could you not put some of the old ones in too?

Enough Christmas Already

Does anyone read these complaints ? I doubt it. We as customers take the time to send in our complaints - we should also be given the courtesy of someone doing g something about them as well. Enough of this damn Xmas stuff - sick of them already and we have another damn month to to. My money is being wasted paying for this channel since I've not watched it since October. Also nice to know - no gives a damn about any of this. Will be cancelling my subscription to Hallmark today. I've found a 'used book store' near me and have purchased numerous DVD's - Murder She Wrote, Diagnosis, etc. for $1.50 each. Saving me lots of money. I bought 50 DVD's with all my mystery episodes - so Hallmark serves no purpose to me anymore. They don't care about the consumer - this is Corporate America - gone to the dogs. Thanks for nothing!!!!!!!! Truly dissatisfied customer. Done with this channel.

CHRISTMAS MOVIES/OLD SHOWS

I LOVE HALLMARK AND PAY DEARLY TO SEE IT. QUIT RUNNING IN JULY THEN BEGINNING NOV. AND THRU DEC. ALL THOSE XMAS MOVIES. IT BECOMES TIRING TO KEEP SEEING SAME ONES OVER AND OVER. AS FOR THE OTHER SHOWS, THERE ARE MANY, MANY SERIES THAT YOU SHOW BUT YOU KEEP REPEATING THE SAME OLD ONES. ALSO WHY DON'T YOU START A SERIES W/THE FIRST SHOW THEN PROCEED ON IN ORDER. MANY OF US WOULD TRULY ENJOY SEEING BEGINNING TO END.

WHY AREN'T YOU ALSO ON ATT TV? IT'S A SAME THAT I HAD TO SWITCH MY CABLE FROM ATT TO COMCAST JUST TO WATCH THE HALLMARK CHANNEL. COME ON, WE ALL HAVE TO PAY FOR CABLE, BUT THE HALLMARK CHANNEL MAKES US PAY EVEN MORE TO AQUIRE YOUR CHANNEL. HELP US OUT.....MONEY IS SHORT BUT YOU DO HAVE GREAT CHANNEL IT SHOULD BE IN THE ORIGINAL LINE UP OF CHANNELS W/O EXTRA CHARGE. JUST STOP SHOWING ALL THESE UNREALISTIC XMAS MOVIES AND FOR SO LONG.

Too much music

Please stop the constant music in your films, or turn it way down. I can't understand half of the script for the annoying, loud music. Your movies are good but I miss half of the lines!

Trying to watch Xmas movie and the sound cuts out every FEW seconds! You might as well kill the channel because you can't watch a movie when you get one word out of every 25! Absolutely ridiculous! What a waste!

Excessive Xmas Movies

Why would you have Xmas movies on both hallmark channels 24/7 for2 damn months. Why should anyone have to watch all these over and over - absolutely ridiculous. I pay a lot of money for these channels and don't have any other options available. You definitely need to "shutdown all the damn Xmas movies' for 2 months. If I wanted to watch 24/7 Xmas movies I'd buy a DVD. Please change this lineup asap. Put back our mystery movies, Diagnosis Murder, Murder she wrote, Mystery Woman, and get rid of the 1950 black and white Perry Mason shows. Enough of all these Matlock repeats also . I know just about every word that is spoken on this show - they are shown morning, noon and night. Why don't you start listening to your viewers and our complaints. Sounds like we are all on the same page with Hallmark channels.

Excessive Christmas Programming

I want to make it clear first, that I am no Scrooge (neither am I Grinch). I am however fed up with Hallmark's excessive capitalizing of Christmas. The 24/7 Christmas started far too early to begin with, but that's not all. I'm not sure who noticed, but Hallmark was also playing Christmas movies in July. As much as I love Christmas, I just can't take Hallmark's Christmas. The movies are awful, literally taking the same exact plot, setting, and music, just switching the actors. It used to be fun to watch a movie or two in December, but starting right after Halloween is too much. What about Thanksgiving? End this nonsense!

Christmas Movies already????

Seriously: To the idiot in charge of programming for this channel, why don't you change the name to the "365/7/24 hours a day Cheesy Christmas fake movie channel"? As if 2 months of the year wasn't enough in the past to show these idiotic movies, now we have 3 months to endure. I hate the fake snow, fake "cold" weather, fake sweater/coat wearing, cheesy plots, in fact, I hate everything about these movies. I channel edit Hallmark now because I can't stand watching 5 seconds of it.

ENOUGH. If you'd put your regular programming back on, your ratings would go through the roof.

christmas movies

Way too early for 24 hrs a day of Christmas movies. Movies also dont usually portray what the real meaning of Christmas is. It is not about finding boyfriends and love. It is a religious holiday celebrating the birth of Christ. I hate these movies, they are silly and all follow the same format. I will not be watching hallmark for 2 months now.
