Hallmark Movies & More is among 13 new live/linear channels that are being added to Roku Channel’s Live TV Channel Guide.
Crown Media announced in November that its SVOD platform, Hallmark Movies Now, had surpassed the 1 million subscriber mark. At that time, it also quietly debuted a live/linear streaming channel on Xumo, offering what it described as a “curated sampling of original content” from the Hallmark library of holiday- and romance-themed movies and specials.
The free, ad-supported channel features Crown titles including For Love and Honor, starring Rebecca Liddiard, James Denton and Natalie Brown; Once Upon a Winter’s Date, headlined by Nicky Whelan, Greg Vaughan Marina Sirtis; and Pumpkin Pie Wars, starring Eric Aragon and Julie Gonzalo.
