Hallmark Channel/Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

The Hallmark networks launched a dozen new films this season–and grabbed an astonishing 56 million viewers (you can catch our previews for most of them here). Those films are now re-running, interspersed with some classics and fan favorites, and on Christmas Day on Hallmark Channel, you can binge-watch 12 films back to back with limited commercial interruptions. Here’s a sneak peek of the films selected, and the whole schedule is here. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries celebrates Christmas Day with some old school black and white films that they’ve added to the library. Both networks will keep Christmas movies on the roster through New Year’s Day.

ION Television

ION premiered a handful of new films this season, and you have the chance to catch them all again Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the selections.

Lifetime

Lifetime has built up a library of holiday films, and added to it this season with a few new flicks.  Today, tomorrow, and Christmas Day, you can watch Christmas movies all day. A few that I love, and will always watch again include The 12 Men of Christmas with Kristin Chenoweth, Anna Chlumksy, and Josh Hopkins, Love at the Christmas Table with Danica McKellar and Dustin Milligan, and The Road to Christmas, with husband-and-wife team Clark Gregg and Jennifer Grey.

Syfy

If you like your holiday fare with a threat to the universe tied in, Syfy has you covered with a marathon of their wintry “OMG, we’re all doomed!” finest–from last weekend’s Christmas Icetastrophe to 12 Disasters of Christmas (with Continuum‘s Magda Apanowicz) and Snowmageddon, there’s something for everyone. As a bonus, they’re also running the Haven and Warehouse 13 Christmas episodes. The whole schedule is here.
