Sling TV subscribers currently have access to a free Hallmark Channel preview all weekend, and just in time to binge a whole lot of Christmas in July content.

Hallmark takes its Christmas in July celebrations serious, and this year looks to be no different. In addition to its usual selection of holiday movies, Hallmark Channel will be premiering two new Christmas-themed movies this month, beginning with A Royal Christmas Crush on July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Just in time for that premiere, Sling TV subscribers have gained access to a free preview of Hallmark Channel. The preview is live today (July 7) and is due to remain available through Monday (July 10).

During this free period, all Sling Blue, Sling Orange, and Sling Orange & Blue subscribers will be able to watch as much Hallmark Channel content as they can handle. Check out Sling’s teaser video below for a preview of what you can stream over the weekend.

And, as this is a free preview, there’s nothing for subscribers to do to enable the freebie, with the linear channel now accessible through the live guide.

For those that decide they would like access to Hallmark Channel throughout the year, it can be added to any of Sling TV’s base plans through the Lifestyle Extra add-on. Priced at $6 per month, Lifestyle Extra adds a number of additional reality TV and lifestyle-themed channels, including Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama.

If not currently a Sling TV subscriber, the live TV service is running a promotion which reduces the price of the first month down to just $15 when signing up to the Blue or Orange plan, or $30 when subscribing to the combined Orange & Blue plan.
