Happiness is a Warm TV

There are 70 new Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime in 2019. Here’s the list.

Forget about Thanksgiving — it’s not even Halloween and we already have a fresh slate of original Christmas movies on television!

Did that sound like we’re complaining? Because we’re not.

It’s never too early to start rolling out those Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies. Oh, the ice skating, the winter festivals, the cookie contests, the widowed dads, the snowstorms ... bring it on.

Hallmark has 24 new movies this year, and toss in another 16 for their sister channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Lifetime comes on strong this year, with 30 new movies.

You’ll get the Hallmark movies every Saturday night (and sometimes Sunday), and a straight week of new movies Nov. 23-30. We’ll get new entries from Hallmark Movies & Mysteries every Thursday and Friday night through Dec. 20. Lifetime has new movies on Saturday nights (and sometimes Sundays), sometimes doubling up on Saturday nights as we get closer to Christmas.

In addition, both of the Hallmark channels are also showing repeats of older Hallmark Christmas movies pretty much around the clock.

Check out the full schedule below of new movies (and don’t forget our Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game).
