    I was a dedicated Hallmark Christmas movie watcher every year until they decided to push the liberal agenda, thank you so much for keep Faith, Family and Freedom at the core of your movies! I am glad to see a lot of my favorite actors & actresses have made the switch to Great American Family!

    Just found this channel.Thanks so much for providing wholesome entertainment.

    I wish you would make movies about Hannukah and not just Christmas

  • November 27, 2022 at 4:45 PM

    We just discovered this channel, and when we saw that a good portion of the Hallmark stars made the move I was so excited. Family friendly movies with no agenda, just good clean movies.

  • November 23, 2022 at 5:21 AM

    love the movies and new stars…thank you

  • November 23, 2022 at 3:01 AM

    Wokeness, really!!! There are many factors as to why family values are circling the drain that have zero bearing on politics. We need the “best” people in office, and support of all Americans to turn our country around. No one side, color, or political party has all the answers. We need the best of both worlds to work together to bring balance back to all Americans…

    Thank you for your great value centered movies we recently discovered. I advertised them to all my women’s bible study friends in Rancho Murieta, CA! My husband and I have deleted so many of the “woke” movies on other channels we had DVR-ed earlier. You are a much better resource for wholesome enjoyment.

    There can never be too many Christmas movies, love that GAC has so many new additions this year.

  • November 20, 2022 at 9:36 AM

    Thank you for keep the love of traditional family values alive. There is no other channel now that I can watch. The “wokeness” that is destroying family values is now everywhere and I cannot thank you enough for standing up for faith & family.
    God Bless you All

    Love. A Merry Christmas Wish

    • November 27, 2022 at 9:22 PM

      Thank you for wholesome shows
