For Immediate Release

TORONTO, October 14, 2021 - This year, Corus Entertainment's W Network is delivering more holiday cheer than ever before with Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas. Beginning October 22, nearly two weeks earlier than previous years, W Network will magically transform into Canada's holiday headquarters featuring 41 all-new exclusive premieres and back-to-back movies every day until New Year's Day. With premieres every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and a joyous schedule of titles featuring everything from a time travel tale to the unbreakable bond between two sisters, and inspiring stories of families finding hope after loss, there's something yule' love all season long.

Reigning as the most watched holiday programming event, Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas on W Network is a firmly established annual tradition in Canadian homes, and we are delighted to be a part of how families and friends celebrate the season, said Daniel Eves, Senior Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. Fans eagerly await the debut of this flagship movie lineup and after a whirlwind year we are embracing the holiday spirit earlier than ever with the uplifting stories and endearing characters of Hallmark Channel's original movies.

It goes without sleigh-ing that W Network is Canada's official home for the holidays. Since its debut in 2018, Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas has helped W Network remain the #1 specialty network overall with key women demos during the event*. In addition, last year it landed #1 with adults 25-54 too** while also coming in as the #1 network with multiple female demos on weekends beating all specialty and conventional stations.***

Throughout Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas and beyond, viewers can look forward to new W Network's Movie Date segments featuring new hosts, HGTV Canada's Sarah Keenleyside, Food Network Canada's Noah Cappe, and Big Brother Canada alum Brittnee Blair, as they join the network to serve up segments in the holiday decor, design, food and lifestyle space. Welcoming guest experts in every episode, W Network's Movie Date will celebrate the very best of the season while acting as the perfect complement to the upcoming holiday slate and continuing to serve as an extension of W Network content year-round.

New this year, W Network and Warner Music Canada will have everyone rocking around the Christmas tree with the perfect holiday music playlist. Available everywhere you stream music beginning November 1, Topsify Canada's Countdown to Christmas will feature an essential mix of brand new and timeless holiday hits - from artists including Michael Bubl , Kelly Clarkson, Dan Shay, Rob Thomas, Brett Eldredge, Sia, and many more! In addition, Topsify will simultaneously launch the perfect Country companion, Complete Country presents Countdown To Christmas, featuring all the biggest names in Country Music. What better way to celebrate the holidays than to bring the joy of the holiday movie season together with greatest hits of Christmas music!

W Network presents its initial list of very merry movie premieres below. Additional titles and the full slate of 41 exclusive premieres will be announced soon. As always, the enchanting movie lineup proudly features homegrown Canadian productions including You, Me & the Christmas Trees (Front Street), The Christmas Contest (Muse), Christmas at Castle Hart (Leif Bristow), and more. Viewers can also stream all 2021 premieres and over 100 past holiday favourites live and on demand on STACKTV and the Global TV App.
