Crown Media Family Networks is the umbrella unit of Crown Media Holdings, Inc., which houses Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. The company operates and distributes both channels in high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD).
Hallmark Channel is the quintessential 24-hour television destination for family-friendly programming and a leader in the production of original movies. One of the fastest-growing major ad-supported cable networks since its launch in 2001 and reaching 88 million U.S. homes, Hallmark Channel delivers on a 100-year legacy and a brand promise that resonates with viewers.
Hallmark Channel’s foundation of original movies features an array of celebratory stories, engaging themes, and compelling characters that inspire and captivate the heart. In addition to its regular schedule of original movies, Hallmark Channel recently collaborated with Walden Media, Walmart, and P&G to create “Walden Family Theater”, a new Friday family movie night destination. Designed to bring family members of all ages together to enjoy common entertainment, “Walden Family Theater” is headlined by new top-quality Walden-produced movies, along with classic original films from Hallmark Channel’s library. In addition, Hallmark Channel is home to a range of lifestyle programming, anchored by “Home & Family”, a daily two-hour live show shot in a fully functional house located on the Universal Studios lot. Complementing its original movie and daytime schedule, Hallmark Channel presents popular television series, including “Frasier”, “The Golden Girls”, “Cheers”, and “Happy Days.” Offering a dynamic lineup of classic series, lifestyle programs, and compelling original movies, Hallmark Channel epitomizes The Heart of TV.
Hallmark Channel continues to expand its offerings to viewers through its companion network, Hallmark Movie Channel.
In addition to Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel, Crown Media Family Networks serves as the exclusive cable home to the prestigious Hallmark Hall of Fame library, the longest-running and most-awarded movie series in television’s history.
