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.

2023 Free Printable Combined Christmas Movie Checklist

So, after searching and searching for a combined Christmas movie list, I came up empty-handed. So, I made it myself! That’s right! I’ve created a 2022 list of all-new Christmas movies for everyone! And I’m sharing it for everyone to get a FREE printable copy! I’m so excited and I hope you will be, too!

How To Get The List!

You can download this list in two different but equally easy ways!! Either way is absolutely FREE and either way, you are signing up to be part of the Deck the Hallmark Blog weekly newsletter, and that’s awesome because you’ll get a weekly newsletter filled with holiday and movie cheer, recipes, movie reviews, and other fun lifestyle and movie tips and ideas!

Option 1

So, your first option is to sign up for a password to access our Movie Checklist Libary. This is the way I’d suggest going because it’s AWESOME. It has checklists for all the 2022 Christmas movies, and I’m adding all kinds of other checklists all the time. 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!


Option 2

The second option is to sign up for the newsletter and I’ll email you links to download the checklist! No logging in or passwords are required!

So, you choose which route you’d like to go and get about downloading and printing your 2022 Complete Christmas Movie Checklist. I have to say, this checklist makes my Christmas movie-watching heart so very happy and I sure hope it will make you happy and save you some time and effort, too!

What channels have I covered for this checklist? All that I could find, friend! ALL of them!!!!

The cable channels covered include Hallmark, Lifetime, GAC, and UpTV.

And the streaming channels I’ve included are BET+, Amazon Prime, Amazon Freevee, Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, FoxNation, and Hulu.

Trust me, I’ve researched and researched, and hopefully, I’ve not missed any of the movies. If so, definitely let me know!

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 2023 will not be a disappointment with 42 new Christmas movies this season between the Hallmark Channel and the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel. (Plus newly released extended cuts of “A Holiday Spectacular” and “3 Wise Men and a Baby”.) Also, don’t forget, they already gave us 2 new Christmas movies during Christmas in July for a total of 46 Christmas movies in 2023!

And they are doing some groundbreaking stuff this year over at Hallmark! There’s a movie set at Biltmore, one about Santa Con, a Christmas Mystery, AND and for the first time on the network, a movie featuring a female 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 20, 2023, and will premiere on Thursdays (Hallmark Movies & Mysteries), Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.


Next up we have Lifetime channel and they have cut way back this year to only 12 new Christmas movies as part of their “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday programming. New movies begin this year on Saturday, November 18, 2023. I really enjoy the Lifetime Christmas movies. They are of awesome quality and have great stories and lots of familiar faces acting in them!

By far and away, the most anticipated movie of the year is “Ladies of the ’80’s: A Divas Christmas”

Start Date

Lifetime Christmas movies premiere on Saturday, November 18, 2023, 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 in 2021, and they have added a ton this year for a total of 20 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 start Saturday, October 14, 2023.

UpTV is putting on their “Merry Movie Christmas” for 2023 and bringing us 9 new Christmas movies! 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 Sunday, November 5, 2023.

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 2, 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 2 and a new one will premiere each Thursday!

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 “Candy Cane Lane” and it debuts on the network on Friday, December 1, 2023.

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!

“Exmas” looks super fun and filled with Christmas and will debut on Amazon Freevee on November 17, 2023.


Netflix is releasing three 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!

Netflix Holiday movies will start on November 15, 2023.

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! Watch whichever ones spark joy for you and let me be one of the first to wish you a Merry Christmas! And as always, Happy Hallmarking!
