© 2023 Global News, a division of Corus Entertainment Inc.

Each year it feels like the holidays creep up a bit earlier — and if you’re a die-hard fan of romantic holiday movies, you won’t be mad to hear that Christmas is coming early this year!

The Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas on W Network isn’t waiting to get that pesky Halloween out of the way; the channel’s impressive slate of 44 holiday movie premieres has already kicked off and the sleigh ride of festive films will really get underway the day after Halloween.

Starting Nov. 1, W Network will host premieres every Wednesday through Sunday.

And even if you’re not subscribed to the station, you’re in luck — W Network will be available on national free preview for the entire month of November, meaning you can binge-watch to your holiday-loving heart’s content.

There are so many movies to keep track of this year, in fact, that the folks at W Network were kind enough to create a handy holiday movie checklist that you can print off or screengrab. Maybe you want to forward it to your friends and have a friendly competition to crown the the biggest holiday movie fan?

Among the highlights of this year’s lineup are not one, but two (!) movies starring fan favourite Lacey Chabert, who headlines both A Merry Scottish Christmas and Haul Out the Holly — Lit Up. (Fun fact: Fans of Party of Five will be thrilled to see Chabert reunite with her former castmate Scott Wolf for A Merry Scottish Christmas.)

Teri Hatcher will also star in two films of her own, Christmas at the Chalet and How to Fall in Love by Christmas.

Other familiar faces to appear during the Countdown to Christmas include Phylicia Rashad, Brennan Elliott, Bethany Joy Lenz, Johnathan Bennett, Katherine Barrell, Nikki DeLoach and so many more.

And, as a bonus, fans can tune into W Network’s Movie Date companion content, featuring HGTV Canada’s Sarah Keenleyside, media personality Brittnee Blair and Food Network Canada’s Noah Cappe, who together will offer up festive segments offering creative design, dining and lifestyle tips and ideas for the holiday season.
