I actually had both for a while, because I subscribed to Hallmark Movies Now on the yearly plan, so when I tried Frndly.TV, I wasn't sure if I wanted it. I did. So, when Hallmark Movies Now reached the end of that year's subscription, I canceled it. I thought about keeping it, since it was different content, though of the same type.
Well, now if I want to get Hallmark Movies Now, it's available as an add-on to Frndly.TV:
Hallmark Movies Now will be accessible to those Frndly TV customers who desire even more of the beloved and famous Hallmark content. The price of Frndly TV’s core live service – including Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama -- will remain the same. Hallmark Movies Now will be available as a $5.99 per month add-on.
“We are pleased to make Hallmark Movies Now an option for all of our customers just in time for the Holiday season,” said Michael McKenna, Chief Programming Officer of Frndly TV. “Those customers that want even more Hallmark on-demand content can elect to purchase the add-on service, while we still keep our current affordable price structure in place for everyone.”
If you already subscribe to Frndly.TV and to Hallmark Movies Now, why would you care? You probably wouldn't. Unless the idea of combining the services into a single app makes you happy.
I currently don't subscribe to Frndly.TV. It was trimmed during my most recent review of subscription services, but I will probably subscribe during Christmas season. And, the thought of expanding the catalog with classic Hallmark movies and other content, is one I like.
Perhaps this winter, Frndly.TV, and Hallmark Movies Now, will return to be a part of my Streaming Life.
