The Deck The Hallmark Blog 2022 Christmas Movie Checklist

I adore Christmas movies of all kinds, but in particular, I love Hallmark Christmas movies. And I watch them all every single year! And in the past few years, I’ve branched out and watched a lot of movies on the other networks as well during the Holiday season. I’ve expanded my horizons to enjoy movies on Lifetime, UpTV, and GAC, plus a few others! I have printed all the lists of movie checklists from various sources and I go about watching during my holiday season. But one thing always bothered me. I really didn’t like having to go from list to list to list to see what was on each night. I wished I could just find one giant combined list so that I could see what was on all the channels on any given day, instead of checking 8 or 10 lists each day to see what to record.

You can choose if you want the complete list, or if you have a favorite channel, you can also just choose that channel’s list and forego the big master list! So if you go this route you can just keep going back and printing or downloading whichever list you’d like at the time!

Breakdown By Channel

Here’s a little more about each network or streaming service. I found the breakdown of all the networks to be SUPER fascinating this year. All I can figure is Christmas movies must be excellent for business and I say give me all of them!

Cable Channels


My first love now and forever will be Hallmark Christmas movies. And 2022 will not be a disappointment with 40 new Christmas movies this season between the Hallmark Channel and the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel. Also, don’t forget, they already gave us 3 new Christmas movies during Christmas in July for a total of 43 Christmas movies in 2022!

And they are doing some groundbreaking stuff this year over at Hallmark! There’s a Hannukah movie, a movie about Kwanza, and for the first time on the network, a movie featuring an LGBTQ couple as the main characters. It’s a big year and I am HERE FOR IT! YAY Hallmark!

Start Date

Hallmark Christmas movies start on Friday, October 21, 2022, and will premiere on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.


Next up we have Lifetime channel and they are bringing us 26 new Christmas movies as part of their “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday programming this year, beginning in November! I really enjoy the Lifetime Christmas movies. They are of awesome quality and have great stories and lots of familiar faces acting in them!

Most exciting for me this year is a little “Grey’s Anatomy” actor reunion with Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening, AND, there will be a movie with Jane Seymour and Joe Lando who starred together for years in “Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman.” And that’s just two of the twenty-six we have coming our way!

Start Date

Lifetime Christmas movies premiere on Saturday, November 5, 2022, and will be on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

GAC stands for the “Great American Family Channel” and the network is new and started in 2021. The GAC Christmas movies were new last year, and they have added a ton this year for a total of 18 new movies! Several of the familiar faces of Hallmark Channel have moved over to GAC (like Candace Cameron Bure and Danika McKellar) and the former President of Crown Media (the company that runs Hallmark Channel), Bill Abbott, runs GAC now. So I’m betting these movies will be a LOT like Hallmark movies of the older days!

The Great American Christmas movies were pretty good last year and I only expect even better this year. There are several Hallmark veterans that have made the jump over to GAC and I think it’ll be fun to watch these as well!

Start Date

GAC Christmas movies also start Saturday, October 21, 2022.

UpTV is putting on their “Merry Movie Christmas” for 2022 and bringing us 17 new Christmas movies plus 5 additional Christmas specials! If you aren’t familiar with UpTV, their network brands itself as uplifting and positive programming and I think we could probably all use a little bit of that!

There are a few names I’ve heard before on the actor roster for these movies and lots of names that are new to me. I’m super excited to watch some of these and try them out! I haven’t watched any of the UpTV Christmas movies in years past so this will be new for me!

Start Date

UpTV Christmas movies begin on Friday, November 4, 2022.


That’s right! One of the three main channels in the country is getting back to a few Christmas movies! I remember the Christmas specials that would be on when I was little! CBS is releasing 3 new Christmas movies this year and I’m so excited!!

The CBS movies have a few BIG names from the CBS network and a few big names from former Hallmark fame as well, including Amanda Kloots, Neal Bledsoe, Paul Greene, and Liza Lapira.

Start Date

All 3 CBS movies air in December 2022. (Specific times and dates are on the checklist!)


NBC has one movie coming out for the Christmas season, at least at the time of publishing this article. And it’s a DOOZIE!

NBC is putting out a Dolly Parton Christmas movie. What’s not to love about that!!!??!! Be on the lookout for “Dolly Parton’s Magic Mountain Christmas.” I’ll update you once we know a date and time for this movie!

Ion Channel and Bounce Channel

Ion TV and Bounce TV are owned by the same parent network and are doing something totally different for their Christmas movies and I’m so excited! A few of their new movies are Christmas Mystery movies! Now that’s fun for sure!

Four movies will premiere on Ion TV and the other movie will premiere on Bounce Channel. Both channels will also have holiday programming starting November 20, 2022.

Start Date

The first of the movies on Ion channel will premiere on November 20, 2022


The OWN channel will be premiering 2 new Christmas movies this year during their “OWN for the Holidays” programming.

Start Date

The first of the two new movies will premiere on OWN Network on December 3, 2022.

Streaming Services

On to the streaming services! Some of these are free and some are part of paid streaming services. We have most of them, so I’m so excited to try some of them out!

BET Plus

BETPlus is premiering ten new Christmas movies this year! BET Plus schedule will start on Thursday, November 3, and will premiere a new movie every Thursday until Christmas!

There are some big names in these movies including Robin Givens, Victoria Rowell, Jasmine Guy, Ne-Yo, Romeo Miller, and several others!

Start date

These movies will begin dropping into the BETPlus service on Thursday, November 3 and a new one will premiere each Thursday!

Apple+ only has one new Christmas movie coming out this season, but it is SUPER highly anticipated. This is the movie “Spirited” which will release in movie theaters on Friday, November 11, and will be available on Apple+ to stream on Friday, November 18. You know the one — that little movie starring RYAN REYNOLDS AND WILL FERRELL. Bet you’ve heard those names before. I’m SO excited about this movie. It’s a scrooge musical. With Ryan Reynolds. And Will Ferrell. How can it be anything but awesome?

Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime will have a ton of Christmas content available as part of your subscription this year. And, in addition to lots of holiday movies and specials you can watch from years past, they also have a new movie exclusive to them called “Something From Tiffany’s” and it debuts on the network on Friday, December 9, 2022.

Amazon Freevee

I’ll be honest, until this article, I’d never heard of Amazon Freevee. But it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a free Amazon streaming service. And they are going all in and debuting a Christmas movie on this channel!

“Hotel for the Holidays” looks super fun and filled with Christmas and will debut on Amazon Freevee on November 24, 2022.


Netflix is releasing four new Christmas movies this year! It’s not as many movies as last year but there are some REALLY big actor names in the four movies they are releasing!

Big names like Lindsay Lohan, Chord Overstreet, Aimee Garcia, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Justin Hartley!! That’s some big stars in some big movies there!

Netflix Holiday movies will start on November 10, 2022.

Discovery+ waded into the Christmas movie waters last year and released a movie. This year they are releasing four new movies! And they all have themes that match the Discovery+ programming like cooking and DIY. How fun is that?!

And Discovery+ went a different route than most streaming services. All four of their movies drop on the same day Friday, November 10, 2022.


HBO Max is jumping in the Christmas movie game with four new Christmas movies exclusive to their HBO Max app!

And one of them is really big news… it’s the sequel to “A Christmas Story”! It’s called “A Christmas Story Christmas” and it’s grown-up Ralphie with his own family navigating his own Christmas! I’m so excited!

The HBO Max movies will begin to release on Thursday, November 17, 2022, and will drop each week through December 1, 2022.


This falls into the same category as Amazon Freevee, I didn’t even know this streaming service existed! They are releasing five new Christmas movies this year!

From the press release, it sounds like one of the movies was filmed by FoxNation and the other four were purchased and will simply just air on FoxNation. The network original is called “Christmas at the Greenbrier” and it looks to be really great!

Fox Nation Christmas movies will begin to drop on Thursday, November 24, 2022. (Thanksgiving)


Hulu will have a ton of Christmas programming (so cutely called “Ho-Ho-Hulu!) that you can choose from during the holiday season, and they will also have one original Christmas movie exclusive to their network!

The Binge 2: It’s a Wonderful Binge is the original movie and it’s a follow-up to their 2020 hit “The Binge.” This one will likely not be a family-friendly one if it’s anything like the first movie! Word of warning parents!

So there you have it, that’s the network-by-network breakdown of what we have coming our way for the next 8 weeks. And personally, I could not be more excited. I love these Christmas movies and I love how they make me feel at Christmas time and all year round. Will I be able to watch every single one? Certainly not. Will I try? Most definitely!
