Not yet. But there is plenty of speculation.

Well, I certainly have wondered why Hallmark itself didn't provide a schedule, but Sky Angel states that they will have all the info in their online guide soon - and hopefully in the on screen guide soon after that.

One upside - so far, it seems that Hallmark Movie Channel is commercial-free. I doubt it will stay that way forever. But in the short time I watched, the only interruption was a very short announcement of which movie was up next or a short "Making of" vignette. Even between movies, they only ran a "feature presentation" reel that set up the next movie.

If, in fact, HMC plans to remain commercial-free, that would be one heck of a selling point for SA. I'd practically consider it a premium channel in that case.

There are a TON of breaks. Though they are short, they are plentiful! That makes watching a movie a chore! At least the one on now is one I have never seen and actually WANT to watch! Moby Dick with Patrick Stewart as Ahab.

See ya

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!
