The very cheapest way to watch Hallmark Channel right now is Peacock Premium. Peacock added Hallmark in late 2022, making it possible to watch Hallmark content without a live TV plan.

Peacock Premium costs $5.99 a month and it is also possible to upgrade to an ad-free viewing experience with the $11.99 a month Premium Plus plan.

Regardless of which Premium plan a home signs up to, subscribers get access to the live Hallmark, Hallmark Drama, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channels, as well as on-demand access to Hallmark movies and show.

Cheapest live TV package with Hallmark Channel

Frndly TV is the cheapest way to sign up to a live TV package that includes Hallmark Channel. With monthly plans starting at $7.99 a month, Frndly TV is an inexpensive subscription compared to other live TV services. Frndly TV’s plans not only include Hallmark Channel, but also Hallmark Drama and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, resulting in even more value for Hallmark fans.

In addition to the ability to stream all three Hallmark channels, Frndly TV provides access to more than 40 live TV channels in general. Some of the other popular networks available with a subscription include A&E, Game Show Network, History, Lifetime, and The Weather Channel.

A downside with Frndly TV is that the cheapest plan doesn’t include any ability to record Hallmark shows and movies. However, subscribers can upgrade to the $9.99 Classic plan to access a cloud DVR or upgrade to the $11.99 Premium plan for an unlimited recording experience.

Other ways to watch Hallmark Channel

While Peacock and Frndly TV are the cheapest ways to watch Hallmark Channel without cable, they are not the only options.

Another cheap option is Philo. A Philo subscription costs $25 a month and also provides access to all three Hallmark channels. In fact, Philo includes more than 70 channels, as well as a DVR, so this can be a good option for consumers who want additional channels and features.

The next cheapest option is Sling TV. While Sling doesn’t include Hallmark in either its base Orange or Blue plans, it does offer all three Hallmark channels through its Lifestyle add-on. With a base plan starting at $40 a month and Lifestyle costing an additional $6 a month, the minimum cost for a Sling TV plan with Hallmark is $46 a month.

Other options for Hallmark include Vidgo (starting at $69.99 a month), YouTube TV (starting at $72.99 a month), Hulu Live TV (starting at $76.99 a month), and DirecTV Stream (starting at $79.99 a month).

Hallmark Channel and TV Everywhere

Another option for watching Hallmark shows and movies without cable is directly through Hallmark. Like many other channels and networks, the Hallmark Channel website and app allow users to watch live and on demand content. A live TV subscription is still required to access Hallmark this way, and not every live TV service provides TV Everywhere support for Hallmark.

For example, Frndly TV, Sling TV, and Hulu Live TV subscribers are currently unable to sign in to Hallmark using their live TV account details. This makes Philo the cheapest option for watching Hallmark movies and shows through the Hallmark app and website.

If subscribed to either DirecTV, Fubo, Vidgo, or YouTube TV, it is also possible to sign in to Hallmark and watch live and on-demand content.

Watching Hallmark Channel without cable — recap

Peacock and Frndly TV are the cheapest options to watch Hallmark Channel without cable. A standard Peacock Premium plan costs $5.99 a month while the cheapest Frndly TV package costs $7.99 a month. Both Peacock and Frndly TV provide access to the main Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

If neither of these options appeal to you, the other ways to stream Hallmark without cable include Philo at $25 a month, Sling TV at $46 a month, Vidgo at $69.99 a month, YouTube TV at $72.99 a month, Hulu Live TV starting at $76.99 a month, and DirecTV Stream at $79.99 a month.
