    Thank you for the traditional-value Christmas movies. I am not against people being how they need to be, but I am tired of having it shoved down my throat by Hallmark and Lifetime. This is perfect: now there are channels suited to everyone’s taste so everyone can be satisfied.

    I was enjoying all the movies and content until I realized that this was the channel that was anti-gay. I will not be watching anymore.

    Will you ever be on Roku as a channel?

    Looks like Roku and other streaming services can get it using the Frndly tv app. This channel is one of 40+ live channels. It’s a paid subscription, but it may be worth it to you. I found it last night doing a google search. It may be available elsewhere, other than comcast, where we’re watching it. It seems low def on comcast, not HD. Frndly shows the basic plan as being SD, but the other two are HD.

    Thank you for making Christmas movies that I can watch with my granddaughter and know that the content is appropriate for her age!

    I too am disappointed with Hallmark, I am done after many years as a loyal viewer, I feel that sponsors and content are going woke and I am not!

        Yes, the ads are the worst. Hallmark was the only reason I kept cable tv and I’m actually upset about how their programming has changed. If I drop cable tv and just keep internet and phone, my bill drops from $225 to $90. I’ve been getting the real news that’s happening in the world elsewhere now for 2 years. I didn’t know about GAC until all the flap about Candace leaving Hallmark took place. Well, she’s taking me with her.

    I am really liking the Christmas movies. I like the pairings and the storyline that are more family friendly. Hallmark has become disappointing. Thar pains me to say that because I have been a fan of Hallmark for years. The one thing that I am not liking is what seems to be a stretch of commercials after like 10 minutes of the movie.

    I am loving the Christmas movies. Catering Christmas was a subtle romance and I liked it. Sometimes in your face is good but this was a good change of pace. I also liked the pairing of the stars.
    Look forward to all the others.
    I watch your shows on frndley
