    I know, but this time it bothered me, for some reason...

    I have been thinking about subscribing to Hallmark via Philo or the app. I have the impression that the app does not initially have all of this years Christmas movies but I am not sure on that. I would rather pay $6 for a few months vs $20. Any suggestions?

    The app is kind of lame. It only has movies from years past, not any recent stuff. It does have some series that are current an app-only. But subscribing to it for Christmas movies would be a waste, IMO.

    Watch Family-Friendly TV Live and On Demand | FRNDLY TV


    Friendly TV is an option if all you really want are the hallmark channels. It has a few others but it’s draw is the 3 Hallmark channels. It starts at $5.99 for live tv and 1 stream, $7.99 and $9.9 for additional streams and dvr capability.

    The only thing about FRNDLY that I will mention is that reviews and experiences with the services have been uneven. Some users report no problems with the service, others report poor streaming quality, constant buffering, etc.

    See:





    Make sure to read the comments too.

    I know I have read other comments/reviews that have mentioned poor picture quality on FRNDLY, but I cannot seem to find them now.

    They have a 7 day trial...you should give it a shot.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I haven’t heard of this service so I did a quick search. After reading reviews of the service, I just decided to go with Philo. I just didn’t feel like dealing with the potential problems stated by 7thton. I was surprised by the awesome picture quality but that is for another thread.

    I am 3/4 of the way through this movie and I have to say I’m really liking it except for the continuous grammar errors of the writers. It’s very annoying that I am this way (grammar nazi in my head) but it takes me right out of the movie when I hear things.

    I tried to record "Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas" but instead HMM aired "Fir Crazy." Which I hadn't ever seen, and I enjoyed also!

    I am getting tired of the giant countdown timers being left on screen for entire segments of the movies. That ruins the movies for me.

    While it doesn't ruin the movie for me I hear you. It can be distracting.

    Halfway through and I am enjoying this one although I am just not an Andrew Walker fan. I have seen many of his movies and they just don’t do it for me

    I liked Merry & Bright and Two Turtle Doves better than a lot of Hallmark movies I've seen lately. I couldn't tell you why, though.

    It was a reunion of sorts from Love to the Rescue, because the actress Michaela Russell - IMDb who played Mikayla in Two Turtle Doves, also played Sophie, in Love to the Rescue.

    Now I'm wondering if they filmed the movies back to back.

    Tonight's premiere: "Christmas Scavenger Hunt," on Hallmark Channel.

    Synopsis: When Belinda heads back to her hometown for the holidays, things get complicated when she is forced to team up with her ex, Dustin, at the town's annual Christmas scavenger hunt.

    Starring Kevin McGarry as Dustin. (One of those rare movies where the actress in the lead role isn't advertised.)
