It’s time to deck the halls with Christmas in July from Hallmark! The Crown family of networks is kicking off the merriest celebration of the summer with three all-new Hallmark Channel original holiday movie premieres and fan favorite holiday movies galore airing throughout the month of July. 

Here’s everything we know about Christmas in July on Hallmark Channel.

What is the Hallmark Channel Christmas in July 2022 schedule? 

The Christmas in July celebration kicks off on Hallmark’s sister channel Hallmark Movies & Mysteries with a weeklong event beginning June 24 — the official six-month to Christmas Eve marker, in case you're wondering — through June 30. There you’ll find holiday movies airing 24/7 throughout the week. 

Starting July 1, holiday movie fans can tune in to Hallmark Channel for more holiday movies airing all day, every day, throughout the month of July.

How to watch Hallmark Channel Christmas in July 

Christmas in July original movies are available exclusively on the Hallmark Channel. Most subscribers have the Hallmark Channel in their cable packages, but if you’ve cut the cord then you can access all three Hallmark Channels — Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama — via a streaming service subscription. Philo TV, Sling TV, FuboTV, Frndly TV, Vidgo and DirecTV Stream all include live access to the Hallmark Channel.

UK viewers can watch movies from the Hallmark Channel as part of a Hallmark TV channel subscription (opens in new tab) through their UK Amazon Prime membership.

If you miss a movie’s premiere, don’t worry — these movies will be playing regularly all throughout the month of July, and then again during the Countdown to Christmas celebration in the fall, so check your local listings to see when they’ll be on again. You can also catch new movies on Hallmark on Demand the day after they premiere.
