Hallmark Channel Schedule

The best time for Directv subscribers to watch the Hallmark Channel is from noon to 10 PM.  The place to go for the Hallmark Channel on Directv is Channel 312.

That’s when the Hallmark Channel airs their feel-good movies like The Professional Bridesmaid and A Country Wedding.

When movies aren’t airing on the Hallmark Channel, they usually air reruns of classic shows like The Golden Girls, Frasier, Cheers, and Reba.

The schedule is a bit different on weekends – Hallmark movies start at 10 am vs noon on Saturday and Sunday.

It’s the following schedule for syndicated shows:

Golden Girls: 10 am to noon; 10 pm to 2 am
Frasier: 2 am to 5 am
Cheers: 5 am to 6 am
Reba: 6 am to 10 am

Watching Hallmark Shows Online

If you miss a Hallmark Channel movie on Directv, you have the option to watch it online instead.

To get started, go to hallmark.com and to the movie section.

Unlike Lifetime, Hallmark movies aren’t free, and you’ll need to log into your cable TV subscription to start watching their movies.

Once you log in, you can watch the Hallmark Channel channels live as well as a healthy selection of Hallmark’s movie catalog.

Please note that older Hallmark movies get paywalled after a couple of months, and you’ll only be able to watch them again if they come back or if you sign up for Hallmark’s Hallmark Movies Now Service.

Hallmark’s Movie Now service is a way to watch all Hallmark content without needing to sign up for a cable tv service.

If you’re a die-hard Hallmark fan, you can sign up for a $5.99 a month subscription or $59.99 for a year after a 7-day free trial.

Directv Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel Location

You can watch Hallmark Movies and Mysteries on Channel 565 if you have Directv.  The ironic thing about the channel name is that the channel focuses a lot more on mysteries compared to movies.

Movies play on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel only on weekdays from 7 pm to 11 pm.

Otherwise, the content will be a bunch of older shows like Murder, She Wrote, Monk, Psych, and Diagnosis Murder.

In this case, Mysteries seems to be a euphemism for Murder.

Don’t worry – during Christmas, the schedule will shift to being 100% Christmas love movies.
