Christmas movies

Its lazy programming to show only Christmas movies on both channels for so many months. It is now January and new year. When does it end? Just have a channel dedicated to Christmas movies. Also, consider that not everyone has family and the holidays are a hard time for many, but we just push through. . I wish I could get rid of the channel now but it used to be one of my favorites.

Too much Christmas programming

I love the mystery channel and I love Christmas. The Christmas movies for two months is a bit of an overload to have on all of the Hallmark channels; now if they were Christmas mysteries I would probably watch that. The Christmas movies that are being shown are pretty much the same plot. From the comments on the board there are valid suggestions for having a Christmas channel, which is a good idea, especially for those that love Christmas movies.

Thank you for your time.

I use HMM as my "base" station, but I record everything I watch so I don't have to watch all the commercials you (and every channel) are adding to the shows. (we're now at 42-45 minutes of commercials for every two hour movie) But really, Christmas is December 25, we know it, you don't have to show sappy low cost for movies to remind us for 10-12 weeks. Please advise your sponsors that we aren't watching the commercials anyway. In one of your team meetings, can someone come up with an idea like splitting the regular programming with the Christmas movies, maybe at night. I don't really appreciate seeing that the same movies are on four or five times (or more) in a short period. .

I do want to applaud you for your decision regarding the LGBTQ commercial. I too am old, white and Christian, I am NOT against anyone expressing love and affection their way, I don't believe God condemns any one who loves, it's what He wants to see.

I too watch your channel often because I am sick of the violence on TV. My next favorite channels are the Public TV stations, where I can watch mysteries without the violence, gore and noise. I record all I wish to watch and once in a while even watch a commercial if I wish.

Kudos re Lori Loughlin. I loved her movies, but her cheating for her children is a bad example for her children and the world. Just another cheater in a growing world of cheats and liars.

Thank you for your station, in spite of the overplayed Christmas.

BTW, did you ever play the movies where the wife has cancer and her husband builds a Ferris wheel in their back yard? Couldn't remember the name, couldn't look it up.

Catering to the LGBT

I'm really disappointed about your channel caving in to the pressure of a very small percent of our society. Hallmark channel was a safe zone where I didn't have to be assaulted by homosexuals in their tv shows, movies, or commercials. Just about all shows on other stations have at least one homosexual in it now, and they run commercials with them in it as well. My first thought that came to mind when all this about your station and the LGBT commercial hit the news was a song sung by Aaron Tippin: You've Got to Stand for Something.....or you fall for anything.
I'm sad to say, I will not be watching your station anymore.

Chirstams Movies

Just get a separate Hallmark Christmas station. Stopping regular programming for over 2 months, then in July, etc. Ruins anyone returning to Hallmark for regular programming. The truth is we can find this else where year round.
The plots are all the same.
The day they start, I don't even click on either Hallmark station till mid January.
And the fact is - no one Christmas is as happy as Hallmark wants us to believe. How about some true Christmas plots. People don't have things work out, they don't fall in love, they go their separate ways, people are alone on Christmas. Your movies' are never going to happen to anyone. Just start showing, Christmas with tears, not fake joy.

Christmas movie overload

PLEASE STOP the Christmas movie madness.. You have been playing continuous Christmas movies on both Hallmark channels since October, not to mention you had most of July playing Christmas movies. It really takes away the spirit of Christmas and it just overload. I am seriously considering stopping my subscription. Don't you have any other movies? What about other holidays?

change the movie formula! PLEASE!

Seriously, I'm not even a movie writer & I could do way better than the same story you all put out show, after show, after show, after show after, show after, show after, after show, after show! Get the point?

It gets way too repetitive & old.

Boy meets girl, realizing they're attracted; despite their growing friendship & trust in one another, it takes nothing more than over hearing one little comment or seeing one chance encounter with an ex & just like that, the relationship is OVER! But next minute, they quickly realize they misinterpreted the encounter & proceed to have an almost kiss (Interrupted of course) as they were trying to make-up; & then they instantly, devote themselves to each other & have a token kiss (the most uncomfortable, unromantic, 4th grade level, kiss you've seen in your life) & Boom. Movie over!

There you have it. Every Hallmark Movie you made this year in one short paragraph. Come on. Anyone could write something more interesting than what you've been doing. I'll write something for you!

Christmas Shows Must End & We have a Great Idea for you need to end

Here's our Idea to please everyone: Maybe you can just have a Hallmark Christmas Channel, where you play Christmas shows on it all year long, while Leaving your regular channel alone, so it only shows your Regular year-round programming, without interrupting it at all.

That way, your Hallmark Christmas junkies are happy with their Christmas programming, 365 days a year & the rest of us can also be happy with their regular programming, 365 days/year! It's a WIN/WIN!

I enjoy your Christmas shows for a couple of weeks, but PLEASE, PLEASE, Enough is Enough. Oh My Goodness!
Christmas From October to January 5th, is WAY TOO MUCH!

And it's on BOTH CHANNELS! We need a break. I'm about to throw up from all of this Christmas. We've seen Every one of these shows, over & over & over & over again. We know almost every line in every single show! We did finally just QUIT WATCHING IT, yesterday, 12/27/19, & are not returning to Hallmark until "Christmas" ends! Then, we'll turn Hallmark back on.

Next year, Hallmark gets turned off on day 1 of your Christmas programming as we know that will be before Halloween even starts!

We decided we're only going to watch from 12/1/20-12/25/20 AND that's it! That's More than enough Christmas!

Saddened & Angered by Homophobic viewers

Thank you for choosing to continue with the Zola ad that shows the two women at their wedding. The rude, hate-based & hate-filled commentary noted on this site, is terribly unsettling & disturbing to hear. People indicating that the LGBTQ community & their existence, is being shoved down their throats & that they don't want their children exposed to it are really upsetting. As if the only place in the world it exists is on this 1 minute advertisement. In truth, these people might as well shut themselves inside their home, never to leave again; never read any books, look at any magazines or watch any entertainment. For that matter best not go to Church, school or work either. Members of the LGBTQ community are EVERYWHERE! Our church welcomes anyone who is LGBTQ (as does my best friends' Jewish Temple) & we even have a gay minister & one gay Sunday School teacher. The children don't notice at all or even care. (we don't point out that they have a gay teacher); they only know them as teacher. Kids are only uncomfortable because they're told to be. They are not instinctively or intuitively uncomfortable with anyone who's LGBTQ. It's the derogatory conversations they overhear or what they're taught by adults who are fearful of anyone who's not like them. These frightened adults instill & pass on this fear into their children.
Our kids know that God & Jesus love everyone, no matter who they are. We don't teach HATE.
These people who are So Outraged & calling LGBTQ people Butt somethings, or other derogatory names, are really the one's with some serious issues they need to deal with. Maybe it's hitting too close to home?

Double holiday

If you guys wanted to recognize a Jewish “holiday” IE Chanukah - DOUBLE HOLIDAY didn’t - what a joke a Jewish
Exec CHOSEN ATO ARRANGE THE XMas party as competition for a promotion so she abrogates her religion to set up a Party for Xmas!

2. Why would a boss who knows she’s Jewish pretty much base a promotion knowing she isn’t Christian and that it would clash with her beliefs-

3. The whole damn thing was patronizing and dismissive of Jewish beliefs-

As an owner and CEO of a large biomedical research Co who is Jewish we try to be respectful of our employees beliefs and traditions I would never ask a Christian to arrange aJewish event if it conflicted with Easter, or Good Friday !
The Jewish community would prefer you did no movies on us rather than promulgate that Jews need to forgo their beliefs in order to get promoted in a Christian Co -

Christmas movies

How many months of Christmas do you need to shove down our throats? Is it to sell your Hallmark products?
The newer years movies are so contrite and acting is awful. The older movies are tolerable but again not for 3 months!
WHY do you have to do this? Unfortunately I can't cancel just this one channel for 3 months or I would.

Take off the poop commercial

This used to be our favorite channel. So family originated and a place to watch movies that created joy and to forget about the problems in our world. Not only do you show gays and lesbians now you are showing the commercial about a man sitting on the toilet , pooping and are advertising a spray to use to prevent orders. Hallmark why are you directly destroying something you have built up to be a great thing for family. Now you are and embarrassment to families. Get rid of the gay, lesbians, and toilet commercials. We will rid of you as well as many friends and families that you have disappointed. Hopefully you will take inconsideration of other complaints and do the right thing. Merry Christmas

Christmas Movies

Both Hallmark channels were my favorite, go-to stations. But Christmas movies starting in October and continuing after Christmas is was too much! I stopped watching these two channels in early November.. What a shame you had to ruin such good channels for just every day comfort.

Watch you only as a Family Channel

I have purchased subscription to your services as a family moral viewing choice. If you promote sexual immorality in any form, I'm out-of -here. Don't compromise because the LGBT folk are wanting promotion for their choice in every corner of entertainment. In your compromise you will lose most of your business because those of us who watch you do so for the family moral viewing that you have traditionally been. Let those who want immorality go to all the other producers. They have plenty of choice. Nobody forces them to watch you. But the rest of us want clean moral family centered viewing like Hallmark used to be.

Homosexual commercial

‘I am greatly saddened by Hallmark’s recent decision to show the homosexual wedding commercial. I have loved your movies because of the family values portrayed in them. Now I can no longer watch because I risk exposing my family to the commercials and possibly future movies portraying homosexual lifestyles. It’s too late to change the channel when your children have already begun seeing the commercial. The thought has already been planted in their minds. So, sadly, I must stop watching hallmark and supporting anything they are connected with. I believe you will live to deeply regret this cowardly decision. Either you continue to stand for what is right and biblical or you fall.

You remove Lori Laughlin from Hallmark completely as you area “family”network/channel but promote gay and lesbians. The Bible does not agree with same sex relations.
Goodbye Hallmark,Lori Laughlin made your network with all of her acting, bad idea you made.

LGBTQ And Overload Of Christmas Movies

As a longtime viewer of The Hallmark Channel, I feel the need to let you know about a couple of things you are doing that I and many of your viewers do not like.

First, there's the Zola ad on your channel that features a lesbian wedding. As a conservative Christian, this just rubs me the wrong way. One of the reasons that people like me watch Hallmark is to get away from this LGBTQ crap! Having it shoved in our faces 24/7 is more than we can bear! This world is already messed up enough up as it is, and we do not need a family-friendly channel like Hallmark supporting the Satanic LGBTQ agenda! Please do not even consider showing this garbage in any of your films! Please make the choice to be the family-friendly channel you were before, or I will join other conservative Christians in the Hallmark boycott!

Second, you have got to stop showing so many Christmas movies. It's one thing to show two months worth of Christmas movies from late October until early January, but when you show a Christmas movie marathon in the middle of summer, that is just ridiculous! During the summer time, people are thinking about things like fireworks, barbeques, and swim parties, not Christmas. If you insist on doing a Christmas countdown every year, at least wait to begin it the day after Thanksgiving and end it the day after Christmas. Or better yet, just create a Hallmark Christmas Channel. That way, your viewers can have a choice. They can still watch their favorite programs, and if they're in the mood for a Christmas movie, they can switch over to the Hallmark Christmas Channel. That way, everybody's happy. What you people are actually doing is a Countdown to New Years, not a Countdown to Christmas. You really need to start listening to your viewers, or you will be facing a boycott. I know many people are already doing this, and many more will do the same. The Hallmark Channel has long been a safe haven for many people who are fed up with the Left-wing LGBT crap that has been pushed on us for so long. Please do not support this evil agenda. And please end your overload of Christmas films. Thank you.

Goodbye Hallmark. You choose to lose 99%of your viewers just to show LGBT ads. Well, we don't want to look at that trash. And we won't. We are dropping the Hallmark channels from our Dish package. Shame on you. This used to be a family channel. Just about the ONLY family channel that was left. A channel that Christians and their families could feel safe watching. No more. Enjoy your 1% viewers. We, along with millions are gone; forever.
