Get a Hallmark Movies Now Free Trial Directly
As mentioned before, getting a free trial directly from the Hallmark Movies Now website is probably the best way to subscribe.
There are a few benefits to doing this.
- Only one subscription to manage
- Use login credentials on the website or with app
- Manage your subscription directly with Hallmark Movies Now
- Watch in app on TV or directly in your browser
To get started, you can find the Hallmark Movies Now website here.
After clicking on the “Start Your 7 day Free Trial” button, follow the instructions below for easy signup.
1. Create your account
The first step is to enter your name, email address and choose a password to create your account.
The form seems to have a lot more fields than most streaming service signup forms. You’ll need to enter your first and last name in two separate fields and after entering your email address you’ll need to enter it again to confirm it. Then choose a password.
There are two boxes to check below the form. I left the first one unchecked because I do not want to get promotional emails. The second box is mandatory as you’ll need to agree to the Terms of Service to continue.
2. Choose your plan
There are two plans to pick from – an annual plan ($59.99) saves you some cash if you’re planning on keeping Hallmark Movies Now that long and a monthly plan of $5.99.
I’d recommend choosing the monthly plan on a free trial. In the event that you forget to cancel you’ll get charged the smaller amount. You can always change your plan at anytime from your account settings.
3. Enter your billing information
The next step is to add your billing information. You will not be charged here. Your info is saved securely so that you can be charged when your free trial expires. To avoid charges, you’ll need to cancel before the end of the trial period.
Credit card is the only option here so you wouldn’t be able to use PayPal if you were planning on doing so.
If you have a promo code, this is where you’d insert it.
Once your payment is approved, you’ll be forwarded to your dashboard where you can start streaming.
Get Hallmark Movies Now on Prime Video
Hallmark Movies Now is one of those channels and if you’re already a Prime member, it may make sense to just add it to your account. This way, you’ll keep all your subscriptions under one account and you can access the content in your Prime Video app.
If you’re not already a member, you can get a full 30 day free trial to Prime Video which will allow you to try out any of the premium channels available.
To get your 7 day free trial of Hallmark Movies Now, simply log into your Amazon Prime account and follow the instructions below.
- Go to the Hallmark Movies Now channel page in Prime Video.
- Click on the “Learn more” banner at the top to get started or mouse over any video and click “watch with a free 7 day trial”.
- Click on the “Start Your 7-day free trial” button.
- Confirm your details on the next page.
- Click on the “Start Your Free Trial” button to start watching.
Hallmark Movies Now Price After Free Trial
During the sign up process, Hallmark Movies Now lets you choose from two plans. An annual plan which costs $59.99 works out to be about $4.99/month. The monthly plan costs $5.99/month.
Whichever plan you choose here is what you’ll pay after your free trial expires.
To avoid being charged after your free trial, Hallmark Movies Now allows you to cancel any time and continue watching until the trial is over.
You can also enter a promo code at signup to get more savings.
On other platforms other than the official website, you may not be able to choose the annual option. Prime Video, for example, does not allow you to choose annual payments so the only option is to pay $5.99 each month.
What To Watch on Hallmark Movies Now

Hallmark Movies Now has about 800 to 1000 hours of content to watch so it may be worth the $5.99 monthly fee required to watch. However, if you’re not sure, this is the reason why you’re getting a 7 day free trial – so you can decide for yourself.
