The following tutorial will show you How to Watch Hallmark Channel on FireStick. This guide should work not only for Firestick but also for all the currently supported Fire TV devices, including the 3rd-gen Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Edition Smart TVs/soundbars.
TV Everywhere services are quite popular among pay-cable and satellite TV subscribers in the United States. An affordable streaming device like Firestick is also a best-selling product worldwide, which explains the broader availability of TV Everywhere services on the Fire TV platform.
Major television networks, such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX started offering thousands of hours of live and on-demand content via the TV Everywhere model, which encouraged other networks to do the same. Since 2018, Amazon’s Fire TV platform is offering 50+ channels to its American users. You can utilize your pay-TV subscription to get access to the live and on-demand library on a particular channel.
As the title suggests, you are here to know whether you can watch the Hallmark Channel on Firestick or not. You will be glad to know that the channel is officially available for Fire TV devices, including Firestick.
From installation to the activation process of the Hallmark’s official Fire TV app, this Firestick guide covers everything you need to know. Since many of you have ditched your cable or satellite TV subscription for online streaming services, we have included a list of OTT live TV providers that offer the live Hallmark Channel as well.

Scrolling down the Home reveals more genres of movies and shows that you and other users are interested in.

You can access the 24/7 live channel feeds of the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries from the Live TV section. If necessary, you can also enable closed captioning by clicking the CC icon on the lower-right corner of the stream player overlay.
How to Watch Hallmark Channel on Firestick without Cable?
The Hallmark Channel Everywhere app doesn’t offer any live or on-demand content for cord-cutters. If that’s the case with you, then you can try out alternative live TV services that provide the Hallmark Channel on Firestick.
Here are some of the best, subscription-based live TV provider that you can get a subscription from to watch the live Hallmark Channel, as well as enjoy its programming on-demand.
fuboTV offers the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama with its classic fubo Standard plan. You can grab the plan at a price of $54.99/month. Alongside the Hallmark channels, you do also get 100+ local entertainment, sports, news, and lifestyle channels with the fubo Standard plan. The channel lineup might vary based on your location.
Although fuboTV doesn’t offer its own collection of on-demand content, you can watch the last few weeks of catch-ups on-demand from fuboTV’s partner networks, including the Hallmark Channel. When necessary, you can also use fuboTV’s Cloud DVR functionality to record your favorite Hallmark shows and watch later. By default, you get 30 hours of recording time with the fubo Standard plan.
Sling’s $30 monthly plans offer great value in the cord-cutter space. However, none of Sling’s Blue and Orange plans offer the trio of Hallmark channels. They are found in Sling’s Lifestyle Extra optional add-on instead, which will cost you an additional $5/month. With the add-on, you get the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and eight other lifestyle channels.
Popular shows from the Hallmark Channel are also available on Sling’s on-demand content library, albeit with a limited number of episodes. Sling also offers ten hours of cloud DVR storage, which you can use to record your favorite Hallmark programs.
$20 is all you need to purchase a live TV subscription from Philo. You get around 58 channels in total, which includes the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama, along with several other popular news, entertainment, lifestyle, kids, and educational channels.
Philo does have an on-demand catalog as well, which offers content from the Hallmark Channel. Philo is the only live TV provider in the list that offers unlimited DVR storage for 30 days, so it’s possible to create a temporary collection of Hallmark programming.
