NEW YORK – July 26, 2021 –Crown Media’s Hallmark Movie Checklist App has launched all-new special features to help viewers stay connected with upcoming programming across Hallmark’s linear networks and countdown to Christmas on Hallmark Channel, slated to kick off on October 22nd.

The Countdown to Christmas Widget places a festive countdown clock on a users’ home screens, allowing them to countdown to the beginning of Countdown to Christmas on Hallmark Channel. The clock will stop at the start of the season’s first original holiday world premiere on the 22nd. After that, the feature will reset and begin counting down to Christmas Day. When tapped, the captivating Hallmark-branded widget takes users directly to the Checklist App on their Android and iOS devices.

What’s more, the app also launched an Upcoming Widget that offers the entire Hallmark linear schedule – across Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama – on a user’s home screen, featuring titles that users have selected as “Favorites” and “Want to Watch” in the app. Users can tap the widget to be taken directly to the Checklist App for more information.
