Matching Hearts slipped in a Gay couples in the last few minutes of the movie. If I had known this was going to happen I would not have watched it. I think if they continue to do this, they should have to change the ratings from G to PG. I am so disappointed with Hallmark it was about the only channel I had been watching. Thank goodness for the UP channel, it is my go t place now to see a show I am not ashamed for my family to watch.

No complaints

Please keep the line up as it is, with no liberal asides or ads. Love the male leads and the story lines. Like Crossword Mysteries for a change. I know the liberals can be bullies, but they have how many stations for t heir agenda, so I think the rest of America can have ONE for themselves. I look forward to seeing Lori Loughlin back as she has protested her innocence for the long haul. It does make me wonder if the whole 'school donations' thing was something designed to shake up a popular channel format. "Love stories" for US is so great. Please stay the same. Kids dream of being princesses or marrying princes. It is a wonderland of dreams for young and old.

"Clinton" Auditorium? your 'matching hearts' movie 2020, another lib aside...."Clinton auditorium" or something. Have you been led by a lib woman or something? Please leave the sneaky lib asides in your 2020 line up out. I can imagine that 'she' must have been even worse in her editing and such than i can possibly imagine, so thank you for caring about your viewers and your brand and stopping most of it, but please...I turned the station. Won't watch it. "Clinton" auditorium...Oh please. Stop already.

BTW LOVE your love stories and great male leads. Love Andrew Walker. Others. It is so nice to have at least ONE station that wants me for a viewer.

reruns and marginal same theme shows

I pay a lot extra on my cable to have Hallmark channels I have friends even in other states that remind each other when something we want to watch is on.....this year it almost seems like someone's relative took the wheel Enough of the baking theme shows and the endless Christmas almost put everyone over the edge. The words hot cocoa and snow angels became something you would cringe at. Even the hairstyles of all the woman exactly the same. I love Aurora Teagarden Loved garage sale mysteries...steve bacic never gets a good role since you quit that show....I would like to see it come back I like a channel like this or I would not bother to message you...will something new be coming up???

Excluding male leads

So Look, I enjoy your movies a lot but... it seems like you exclude INTENSIONLY male leads. Are you a female driven network or do you intend to include males? I do appreciate you picking up the previously existing Jesse Stone series .. but it sure seems like you are predestined to personify a female lead and not include a male and or male/female lead. What's with that???? If you don't pursue a balance … I will.

Accessability to Programs

We live in a rural area with a small cable company which means limited access to certain programs. We were able to stream Hallmark Movies Now with a previous Samsung TV, until the streaming on the TV quit. I could only watch on my computer because our other Samsung Smart TV didn't have the preloaded app. We finally replaced the Samsung TV with a newer Samsung TV only to find that now because it is newer, Samsun is no longer preloading the Hallmark Movies Now app or any other Hallmark app. We purchased a Roku hoping that would solve our problem only to find out we can only get Hallmark movies Now, but not Hallmark Movies & Mysteries nor Hallmark Drama, both of which we have really wanted to be able to get for several years now. We are frustrated to the max. I can't believe Hallmark continues to create all this entertainment that is so difficult to get access to.

I wanted to inform you that since I have STOPPED watching my 24/7 Hallmark addiction, I have discovered numerous other channels with great shows, and I have YET to see any blatant airing of immoral commercials or shows. Additionally, I no longer shop at Hallmark, or purchase Hallmark cards at other stores. It is alarming that a few small voices make a bigger impact than the majority of us who want to watch, and allow family members and friends to watch clean, fun shows and movies. I cannot believe that the one last channel that I thought would be my "go to" channel has left me. Not only is it sinful and an abomination for people to engage in same sex relations, it is quite impossible to procreate, which was the original idea for men and women to get together. How quickly our society has accepted immoral, sinful and indecent situations to be the "norm" and anyone who does not agree is immediately accused of prejudice and the like. The reality is that true love, agape love, means that we love everyone no matter what their beliefs. The problem is when beliefs are forced on others. What happened to our "free" country with rights? I can still love you without agreeing with you or accepting your beliefs, please consider doing the same for me. By the way, I do have a family member with the above beliefs, and I have never stopped loving her. She knows our feelings and "respects" ours. Consider doing the same and stand up for what is right, moral, and natural and let those who do not "feel" the same way watch other channels if they so desire to. Thank you.

Same movies over and over

I watch Hallmark almost exclusively but after seeing the same movie over and over again, I have to switch to another channel. I know there are movies in your archives that you could show but for some reason you choose not to or you are putting them on in the middle of the night when most people are sleeping and not watching TV. Also, do not like the fact that you are showing commercials with gay/lesbian couples - not necessary to do that - there are enough other stations to carry their agenda.

Too Much Hart to Hart

I am a late night/early morning viewer and would like to see more variety at that hour. I'm okay with Murder She Wrote because there seems to be a wealth of episodes. Not so much for Hart to Hart. One hour is enough. Fill in with Diagnosis Murder and Matlock. I'm not sure why those shows were taken off the late night/early morning schedule. Please put them back. Your consideration is much appreciated.

Peloton commercial

I am so TIRED of the Peloton commercial with the young guy riding the bike and singing. That ad has been on today at least 35 times!!! Enough is enough!! Every day it is on like that! Also why do you have to start charging to see movies now??? You are getting GREEDY like so many others are. You used to be able to watch them on Hallmark or Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channels. I think that is a SHAME! Sometimes change isn't good. You now have to watch the same movies over and over and over and over. That is not right!! You shouldn't have to do that! I know that a lot of other people don't like it either.

I was watching the movie Winters Dream and the were a few inconstancies, such as the girl Anna is shown at the run with purple skis then they show her starting the race with blue skies and sking with blue skies and ending with blue skies. But then she is shown holding purple skis that just seem to appear out of no where! Go figure!

It is NOT Christmas every day every month

I love your mysteries. Some are really great. I look forward to them and I and my family and friends watch them faithfully. I am so sick of Christmas in April, in June, in July, in October, in November, and even in January. I realize that you started as a greeting card company and Christmas is the big money maker, but you do other things now. I have ignored your scheduling completely for weeks. I don't even look to see what is on. Yesterday I thought, hey it is January and Christmas is past for now. But no, still the Christmas movies. PLEASE bring back your mysteries and show them the respect that most of them deserve. We do not all live in a Christmas fantasy land.

I love the hallmark channels I’m a Christmas movie addicted, however my complaint is, this whole season i have not seen any of your more older Christmas movies, like from before 2014-15, i realized you show them in the middle of the night, when i am sleeping and i do not have a dvr to record and i will not pay to see them. So my suggestion is now for next year, to maybe show the older ones on the weekends before you premiere a new one at night. I have been watching hallmark since it’s birth, even your other seasonal movies i would like to see more of the older ones. the only channel i don’t have is drama. I actually agree that you should have a channel with Christmas movies only, that would be awesome. It depends on which provider you have though. Any way I’m not sure if anyone from hallmark actually reads this forum, but if you did i hope you take all of these comments into consideration. Thanks

Non stop Christmas movies for too long

You show non stop Christmas movies for far too long. Non stop Christmas movies should be shown only from November after the day of Thanksgiving to January first. Showing Christmas movies it's due season brings out the specialness of the Holidays. Showing nonstop Christmas movies from the last week of October to the end of the first week of January, kind of ruins Christmas, at least for me. And showing nonstop Christmas movies the first two weeks on one Halmark channel and the next two week's of Christmas movies on another Halmark channel in JULY (for Pete's sakes) has got to go! These Christmas movies out of season is really inappropriate!

Absurd length if Christmas movies. Also LGBTQ totally inappropriate on what was considered a wholesome family Network

I have never been more disappointed in the Hallmark Channel's. Christmas holidays I have always run from Thanksgiving through New Year's Eve. Not from October through January of the following year. Honestly Hallmark you have taken the enjoyment out of any type of joy and enjoyment I'm your channel and replaced it with redundancy; as each and every movie is different people and the same storyline. There has been absolutely no thought process put into any of these movies except for the same thing Boy Meets Girl Girl Meets Boy eventually fall in love and happy ending which we all know is absurd but for a short. Of time it's enjoyable from November Thanksgiving of November through Christmas maybe the new year that's it! You have totally burnt this subscriber out. And I will add this is a difficult time of year for me as it is for many many many people we don't need to see this on a channel that in the evening we could put it on and watch The Golden Girls and laugh or Frasier and laugh or cheers and laugh instead of continually being depressed because you continue to run these movies in a completely redundant redundant redundant have I said redundant way! Enough already!
You really need to get back to regular scheduling because there are more long-term customers due to this laziness of continuing this over drawn Christmas season and then this garbage of doing it again in July! And don't even get me started about these homosexual ads that you've decided to air during your programming. This is indeed a wholesome family Network and this should not be shown in any way shape or form!

Too many Christmas movies.

I think that Halmark dramas & Halmark movies & mysteries should start non stop Christmas movies only in the last Friday of November and last only until January 1st. Having non stop Christmas movies from the last week of October to the end of the first week of January ruins Christmas, at least for me. If showing Christmas movies mainly in the month of December would have Christmas more special, because Christmas would be celebrated only in it's due season. And showing nonstop Christmas movies for two weeks on the first week on one of the Halmark channel & then the other Halmark channel in July has got to go. It's very inappropriate! Maybe of one of the commentators that I read, you should have a special channel made exclusively for Christmas movies. Just please give us more choices!

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?
