Hallmark TV Marks Crown Media’s First International SVOD Offering
New York, NY, August 13, 2020 – Hallmark TV, a new SVOD service from Crown Media Family Networks, launched in the UK today, the company announced. Crown Media International Distribution offers the service on Prime Video Channels as an add-on subscription for £4.49 a month. Featuring a rotating slate of original movies and other proprietary Crown Media programming, Hallmark TV marks the company’s first international SVOD offering and the first time a UK audience will have access to Hallmark content.
Hallmark TV is available via the Prime Video app, where viewers can watch anytime, anywhere on smart TVs, iOS and Android mobile devices, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and game consoles, as well as on the web at www.amazon.co.uk/channels. As an add-on subscription to their existing Prime Video account, Prime members have the convenience of accessing Hallmark TV with a single login and user experience, obviating the need to jump from app to app.
“The launch of Hallmark TV in the UK is a major milestone in our ongoing efforts to expand the reach of our signature original content in the international marketplace,” said Francisco Gonzalez, Crown Media’s SVP, international distribution. “We look forward to sharing our signature blend of romantic comedies, mysteries, dramas and holiday movies with a new audience, as well as existing Hallmark fans, through Amazon Prime Video Channels.”
Previously on the international front, Crown Media inked a landmark content deal in 2018 with Corus Entertainment’s W Network, which broadcasts Hallmark Channel exclusively every weekend in Canada. The channel has become one of the country’s top performing networks on weekends among women.
