Hallmark Channel (Scandilux) was a television channel broadcasting drama series and movies in the Nordic and Benelux countries. Most series on the channel originate in the United States, but there are also some series from other English-speaking countries.

Series broadcast on the channel include:

The channel has been available on the digital Canal Digital platform since 1997. Most of this time, it has been time-sharing with Fox Kids/Jetix, which was broadcast during the day. This timeshare is mirrored in many analogue cable networks. On 1 September 2009 the Hallmark Channel will disappear from the Canal Digital package.[2]

In 1998, the channel became available on the analogue Viasat platform where it was broadcasting 24 hours per day. It continued broadcasting on the Viasat platform when it switched to digital.

Distributors have announced that NBC Universal has decided that the channel will stop broadcasting in the Nordic countries on 31 August 2009.[3][4]

In the Benelux countries the channel has always been 24 hours. It officially ceased broadcasting on 20 July 2011.[5]
