USA 'Hallmark Like' Movies in Australia

The Hallmark Channel is not the only tv / movie channel that make movies that are very family friendly. Generally if you like the Hallmark Channel Movies, you’ll like the other movies that other channels in the USA show.

 They come from TV channels like Lifetime, UPTV, ION and even Netflix. 

There is a Canadian Channel called ‘Super Channel Heart and Home’ and alot of Hallmark Movies and series end up on that channel (lucky Canadians!). That channel also produces films they may end up on the streaming channel ‘Hallmark Movies Now’ (available in USA and UK). Those movies, when they come to Australia will be listed on this page. 

I’ve listed the ‘Hallmark Like’ movies below and which channel they originate from and where you can watch them in Australia. If you’d like to see a List of the Hallmark Channel Movies currently showing in Australia, I’ve written a list of them here.

This list is current June 2022 and will be updated when necessary.

Disney+

Disney+ (Disney Plus) is a streaming service that is available from $11.99 a month. Disney+ is not just a service with Disney movies. Although they have all of them. In Australia we also have the ‘Star’ service within Disney+ which is a lot of movies and shows for adults. I have found the following:

  • Snowglobe – 2007 – ABC Family
  • 12 Dates of Christmas – 2011 – ABC Family

Beamafilm

A regular reader (thanks DM!)  alerted me to Beamafilm, a smaller independent streaming service. It can be accessed through many libraries or it has a 30 day free trail with a charge after that. Which I am having trouble finding, probably because I signed up through my library. There are a handful of Hallmark Like movies, many of which can be found on Tubi. (or Netflix or Prime)

  • A Very Country Christmas – 2017 – UPtv
  • Nearly Married – 2017
  • A Christmas Catch – 2018 – UPtv

Plex

Plex îs a free streaming service which means there are advertisements throughout the show when being watched. You can access it online and it’s also available on smart tvs and I find it not user friendly and clunky.

  • The 12 Days of Christmas Eve – 2004
  • The Road to Christmas – 2006
  • A Christmas Snow – 2010
  • A Christmas Tree Miracle – 2013 – UPtv

Youtube

I found a couple of legal channels featuring ‘Hallmark Like’ movies.

Mediatime Network

Johnson Production Group

Sunworld Pictures

Brain Power Studio

ACI on the Go

Family Central – a YouTube channel that shows movies under license

YouTube Movies (Official YouTube Channel)

Where to Buy 'Hallmark Like' DVDs and Digital Movies

Like the Hallmark Movies, the ‘Hallmark Like’ movies can also be bought on DVD or as a digital copy. I’m not going to list every single movie and where to buy it ( I did for the Hallmark Movies which you can check out here) but here is a list of the retailers and places you can purchase them. Search under the categories Christmas, Romance, Drama and Family.
