CHRISTMAS MOVIES IN OCTOBER

SHAME ON YOU HALLMARK CHANNEL. DON'T YOU KNOW THAT CHRISTMAS IS IN DECEMBER. DECEMBER 25TH.-

IT IS WAY TOO SOON TO BE PLAYING CHRISTMAS MOVIES AT THE END OF OCTOBER,--TO SAY NOTHING ABOUT

YOUR TAKING AWAY FAVORITE PROGRAMS LIKE MONK AND COLUMBO. YOU ARE GAINING NOTHING EXCEPT

HOSTILITY FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE ENJOYED THE HALLMARK CHANNEL UNTIL NOW. ALSO, YOU ARE DEMEANING

WHAT THE TRUE REASON IS FOR CHRISTMAS. GIVE US BACK MONK AND COLUMBO. SINCERELY, JANICE

Christmas Movie Monopoly

The Hallmark Channel and The Hallmark Movie Channel are part of my Directv package, and I usually enjoy the programming on these channels. However, I am aggravated by the Christmas movie monopoly on both channels.

When Hallmark advertised its vast programming schedule for customers, I never saw where Christmas movies would be monopolizing both channels approximately four months out of the year. I am wasting my money. Please consider a way that keeps all customers content. It is possible to show Christmas movies and the regular programming during the same time period. All of the regular programs should not have to be pre-empted for the hundreds of Hallmark Christmas movies on your schedule. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week is too much.

I love Christmas! I enjoy celebrating the birth of Jesus during the Christmas season, and I like many of your Christmas movies. They are family oriented or light romantic comedies or drama, with good plots. I prefer Christmas movies during the holidays – the Christmas holidays - NOT Fourth of July, Halloween, Veteran's Day, and Thanksgiving. I do NOT enjoy having ONLY Christmas movies available for viewing in July, part of October, November, December, and part of January.

Somehow, I feel like it is all about money. The commercialism of Christmas surpasses old-fashioned Christmas spirit in the business world every time. Perhaps Hallmark is promoting Christmas for personal financial gain or maybe advertising will benefit major companies by showing off exceptional Christmas gifts available for purchase?

Please consider changing your Christmas movie format in the future to keep ALL Hallmark Channel customers happy. Until that time, my viewing will take place elsewhere.

Thank you for your time.

Countdown to Christmas Overkill!

Is it necessary to play Christmas movies 24 hours a day? It’s overkill. Why not program the countdown to Christmas 12 hours a day, from noon to midnight, and not interrupt the classics like I Love Lucy and the rest? Or start a Hallmark Holiday Channel and leave the programming on the Hallmark Channel and the Hallmark Mystery Channel alone...

Holiday Movies

Too many and too long a season for Christmas movies! They start before Halloween and last until next year! Good grief! Talk about a sugar overload! Unfortunately I will not watch your channels until next year. I love mysteries. That's why I watch HMM not for Christmas movies that are all the same. We get that Christmas is a great season but not in OCTOBER for goodness sake! Please think about waiting until at least after Thanksgiving before you start celebrating the most wonderful time of the year. Just because the retail business is greedy doesn't mean Hallmark channels should reflect that!

Christmas Movies

Seriously why must you show over 2 months of Christmas movies on the murder and mystery channel especially sunce you also showed them in July too! You have 2 other hallmark channels that you show weepy eyed movies on (sorry not my cup of tea) so why must you also take the M&M channel and try to cram your holiday movies down our throats too. STOP with the Christmas movies on M&M channel and bring back our mystery shows NOW! All you are doing is pushing your fan base away.

Christmas Movies

Seriously why must you show Christmas movies starting in October until January on the mystery channel!! Not every one likes to watch sappy holiday movies for over 2 months especially since you also show them in July. I do not watch your other hallmark channels because of the weepy eyed movies you show on them (just not my cup of tea) so why must you take the murder and mystery channel and screw it up too? Give your faithful M&M channel fans a break and STOP trying to cram holiday movies down our throats!

Background music

Why does Hallmark think it is necessary to play background music? Last year it was so loud I couldn't hear half of what was being said. After complaining it got better, but it's a distraction. Have the producers ever watched other movies and noticed there is NO MUSIC? Stop with the music PLEASE!!!

Christmas Movies

I have decided that if Hallmark insists to keep showing Christmas shows 247 for 3 whole months I will change to another channel to watch. I will not pay extra for Hallmark. I can find some of my favorites on another channel. Also, I have discussed the matter of Hallmark with many people I know and they agree that Hallmark has gone overboard and that Hallmark is controlled by paid time by commercial ads. The marketers are the only ones who benefit from Christmas in October, November, January, and July. I vow not to buy any products advertised on the Hallmark Channels during the listed months.

Also, The Middle, really. That was the most boring show on TV as well as stupid.

Three months of Christmas movies

The reason I have come to detest this time of year is because the only channel (hallmark) I enjoy watching has turned three months of the year into Christmas. While I love the reason for Christmas, I hate three months of the corny Xmas movies with terrible actors. Two weeks is enough if not too much. I would rather see Murder She Wrote, Matlock, Diagnosis Murder, and some of Murder She baked and garage sales movies. Psych is on the low level of stupidity as well as The Good Witch. I do resent paying extra for Hallmark in order to get to see very little of what I like enjoy and like. I can't stay up all night! Hallmark has forgotten Thanksgiving. I do enjoy some Columbo, but not all of them. And, certainly not back to back. They tend to be very annoying!

Christmas movies with no break

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

Christmas movies with no break

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF US MUST PAY EXTRA FOR THIS CHANNEL. WELL I DO, I DO THIS BECAUSE I ENJOY MATLOCK, COLUMBO, MURDER SHE WROTE ETC. MATTER OF FACT, I GO TO SLEEP LISTENING TO MURDER SHE WROTE. SO FOR YOU TO HIGH JACK THE MOVIES & MYSTERIES CHANNEL & MAKE IT ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS IS RIDICULOUS. YOU HAVE OTHER CHANNELS THAT YOU CAN MAKE A 24 HOUR A DAY CHRISTMAS CHANNEL. AND LEAVE THE MOVIE/MYSTERY CHANNEL ALONE. THEN TO START IT IN OCTOBER AND NOT END IT TILL JANUARY IS JUST UN CALLED FOR. IF THIS ISN'T THE LAST YEAR 2018 YOU DO THIS, I'M GIVING UP THIS CHANNEL FROM MY.PACKAGE NEXT OCTOBER 2019. I JUST DON'T THINK.IT'S FAIR THAT WE PAY FOR A CHANNEL & DON'T GET TO ENJOY THE CHANNEL YEAR ROUND. IF I HAVE TO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO WATCH FOR 2+ MONTHS THEN I CAN DO IT PERMANTLY.

Do Not Need 24/7 Christmas Movies

3 months of 24/7 Christmas movies is absolutely ridiculous! I pay for mysteries not 3 months of Christmas movies. If it’s that serious to show Christmas movies why not once a day or weekends only. Total waste of money and disrespectful to those who pay for mysteries! Next year please consider those of us who pay for this channel strictly for the mysteries!

CHRISTMAS MOVIE

This is really not a complaint but more of a request. I love and would like to see more of the older Christmas movies such as The National Tree, A Town without Christmas, Christmas Comes Home to Cacaan, Christmas in Cacaan, The Christmas Note, Christmas in Conway, etc.
Thanks.

The Good Witch

The Good Witch a good show needs a character
Replacement . Catherine Bell does not in life fairly portray
The character she plays . How does a gay women represent Hallmark family values of mainsyream America . Her Scientology philosophy certain she has a right to her own beliefs but she does NOT represent mainstream America .
Hallmark needs to man up and decide who it is Mainstream
Or fringe groups that go against all moral values that build strong character in our children . She is not one that exemplifies that.

I expect your response will be the usual politically correct corporate statement . Have someone with the courage to call me from. Hallmark ask for my number I will provide it .
You just lost 6 viewers of that show who touch 100’s of others if you can prove me wrong would love to hear your response

Countdown to Christmas

I am so disappointed in the Hallmark mystery channel showing Christmas movies for 3 months out of the year. One whole month in the summer and starting before Halloween until Christmas. The channel Does not even show any original mysteries for Halloween. The channel should be titled Christmas Holiday Movie Channel not mystery channel .I did not purchase this channel to watch Christmas movies. Why doesn’t Hallmark show the Christmas movies just on one channel not on the mystery channel. . Very unsastified and disappointed customer who is seriously thinking of canceling channel as I do not watch during the Countdown to Christmas. Wasting my money

Hallmark Countdown to Christmas

I am not happy about the Hallmark movies and mystery channel showing Christmas movies for one month in the summer and beginning in late October (even before Halloween) till Christmas. I purchased this channel specifically for watching mysteries not Christmas movies. Why can’t hallmark dedicate one channel to countdown to Christmas rather than both channels. It is very frustrating that the channel does not show mysteries during that time not even around Halloween. . Very disappointed and seriously considering dropping the channel.

Music in movies

Why don't you fire your sound engineer and hire one that realizes how irritating it is to constantly have background music that covers up the audio. Our family and everyone I have discussed this with would much more like to actually hear the story line than the cheap attempt to create emotions by making the music so loud that it is impossible to follow the story line. I don't know how many of your fine music we have scrapped after a few minutes of trying to listen to the story that has been covered up by that damn irritating music.

Brown eyes

Why do you barely show brown eyes on your channel . movies? Even actresses that have beautiful brown eyes wear blue or green contacts??? I am Mexican with a very mixed back ground , my husband is white, red hair green eyes , our daughter is olive skin , red hair and beautiful brown eyes...it is OK to have blue or green eyes for your main characters, but it is ok to have more brown eyes main characters too. I don't think I have seen any kid (not ensemble ) with brown eyes.......Brown eyes are a majority in the world , for that lady that says too much diversity...Do a DNA test ..you'll be surprise ....The major complain is no diversity ....you made me want to write in here .....look around yourself lady ...

Fall Harvest Movie Countdown

I can’t believe GROWING THE BIG ONE With Shannen Doherty didn’t make the countdown. That has always been one of my favorite Hallmark fall shows. 🍁 🎃 🍂
