I was so darn excited Friday night as I was flipping through channels (we have Dish Network) on our tv out at the lake...low & behold, I stumbled accross Lifetime Movie Network! Normally we don't get that, but I remember last year in July, they offered it as their monthly special! Sooo..hopefully for the rest of the month I can now watch the Christmas movies on that channel every week night!! We had company over at the lake when I stumbled accross LMN & you should have seen the looks on their faces when I shouted YES!We get LMN now & I can watch my Christmas in July movies!!!! I think they thought I bumped my head!!! But that's ok!!!
So any of you who have Dish Network top 200, check it out...you might be getting LMN free this month!
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Most local cable systems in the U.S. offer the Lifetime Movie Network as a second-tier or "expanded basic" cable channel (the tier of about 100 channels, above the basic offering of about 30 channels).
I don't think we can get it online. If you've got Sky or Virgin Media etc. I'm hoping the Hallmark Channel might do something and sometimes higher up on the movie channels they do some Christmas ones.
I'm actually hoping that The Cartoon Network or Boomerang will do a Christmas in July - that's where I managed to find The Grinch who Stole Christmas last year. Still hoping for Rudolph at some point though
