    They are not trimmed. The movies are 1 hr 24 mins without commercials. Last year Hallmark did this and had two 3min breaks for Hallmark promotions in each of the movies

    When I said “trimmed,” I meant trimmed from their typical broadcast length of 2 hours, which includes 36 minutes of commercials.

    Guess I'll remember to check my guide when I'm at home.

    Thanks - it never occurred to me to add 2017. I'll give it a try for 2018 :)

    After watching more than 80 Christmas movies (57 of them Hallmark), I have to say: that SNL Hallmark trailer - IT'S ALL TRUE!

    Has anyone tried the Hallmark app? Does the programming have commercials?

    A real-life story that could be a Hallmark movie:

    Pandoro Is Italy’s Christmas Miracle. Easter Is Another Story.

    Just need to add a romance. :)

    There was a weird glitch in the guide data for one section that showed IIRC a 2.5 hour movie then a half hour one. It ended up being two complete movies.

    Still haven't watched any of them, and who knows, maybe I won't.. but I wanted to 'morally support' them showing commercial free movies, and a dumb fairy tale happy movie can be entertaining once in a while.. (Heck, "The Greatest Showman" was a light "fun" movie...)

    So anyone else continuing to watch the Hallmark movies post-Christmas?
    (Royal New Years Eve, Love on the Slopes, ...)

    I kinda liked Royal, but didn't really like Slopes.
    Both were standard formula. Both got an extra point because I liked the lead actress.

    I have Hallmark Movies & Mysteries but not Hallmark Channel. I wonder if they're going to repeat the post-holiday movies on Movies & Mysteries?

    I looked at it a few months ago. Very little content and most of it older.

    IIRC, they binge the holiday movies again in the late summer?

    Pretty soon they'll have enough Christmas movies produced to start the Hallmark Holiday channel.

    Not sure this is the best thread but the closest I could find. My wife got my son (13 yrsold) watching these hallmark mystery movies. But they seem to have watched them all.

    Is there a good list of them and when the newer ones are coming?
    Any other channels or suggestions for similar movies or even tv shows of past that might be worth watching!

    Go to the source

    They have some of them

    But, other than those, it's a rather common TV show theme, where a layman partners up with some type of law enforcement -- Castle, Deception, Forever, Instinct, The Mentalist, The Pretender, Lucifer, Moonlight, ...

    The CW Seed has a number of them.
