    Around Thanksgiving, I setup a wishlist on my Tivo to record all movies with the category of "Christmas" and keyword "2019" on HD channels to record all the new Christmas movies produced this year for my spouse to watch. My Tivo which is on Comcast has been very busy recording all month long and it still has a dozen movies to record by the 25th.

    The total tally for my Tivo will reach 69 Christmas movies recorded in 2019 which is just over 149 broadcast hours with commercials. As you might expect Hallmark (28 between Hallmark and Hallmark Movie Channels) & Lifetime (25) led the networks with new Christmas movies released in 2019.

    So far, my spouse has made it through 10 of the movies and I think she's burnt out. I've suggested playing the Hallmark Christmas Movie Drink Game, but she's not interested.

    If you get Ion Plus (a subchannel of the Ion network) they have been running 24/7 Christmas movies. I assume they are mostly old Hallmark and Lifetime movies.

    They're actually all of Ion's own library of old commissioned Christmas themed movies. They have a couple of dozen and have been looping them during December for the last couple of years on Ion Plus

    Between Lifetime and Hallmark alone you could easily watch nothing but Christmas movies for two to three weeks. :) Prepare for 2020 that will be real peak Christmas movies.

    I like Christmas movies and am man enough to admit an affection for Hallmark, but my taste in movies is such that I tend to watch the same ones over and over. I actually leave on the Christmas Story and Wonderful Life marathons.

    Between the new movies on Hallmark, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, and Lifetime, I think there are like 70 new movies this season. Add on a bunch of new Netflix movies too and this household is all holiday movies all the time...LOL
