The Hallmark Channel is a British TV channel owned by NBC Universal, with the Hallmark brand used under licence from Crown Media (which operates the US Hallmark Channel). It was previously known as the Hallmark Entertainment Network.

The channel was previously owned by the privately-backed Sparrowhawk Media Group, until late 2007 when the company was bought by NBC Universal.

The channel mainly broadcasts United States imports including drama series and TV movies such as "House MD" and "Law & Order". However the channel also shows BBC drama including "Hustle" and "Spooks". The channel specialises in programming that is appropriate for the whole family.

Hallmark 2

In July 2005, there were rumours that Sparrowhawk were going to launch a sister channel to the Hallmark Channel, called Hallmark 2. [ [http://media247.co.uk/skydigital/newsarchive/2005/07/hallmark_plans.php] ] This was denied by a spokesperson for Hallmark who said that "a second channel from Hallmark will not be launching 'anytime soon'". [ [http://media247.co.uk/skydigital/newsarchive/2006/03/second_hallmark.php] ] Movies 24 was launched instead.
