Free month-long Great American Family channel preview starts November 1

TDS and the Great American Family Channel (GAF) are teaming up to offer a free preview during the entire month of November. The timing is perfect because all month long you can soak in the channel’s Christmas movie goodness on channel 139.

If you’re thinking, “Wait, isn’t that Hallmark’s deal?” you wouldn’t be wrong—but Great American Media President and CEO Bill Abbot left Hallmark after an 11-year run with that network in 2020. Since then, he’s been bringing his storytelling approach to his new media home. This means, if you’re a fan of programming that celebrates faith, family, and country you should really check out GAF.

GAF has 18 new Christmas movies for 2022 and holiday movies airing 24/7 all month long. There has been much buzz on the internet about Hallmark stars leaving that channel and signing deals with GAF. That means you may find a lot of actors you know and love on GAF this year including Candice Cameron Bure, Danica McKeller, Jen Lilley, Jessica Lowndes, Paul Greene, Jill Wagner, Cameron Mathison, Merritt Patterson, and Daniel Lissing.

This author suspects Christmas at the Drive-in, Catering Christmas, and A Merry Christmas Wish should definitely be on your watch list based on the experienced casts, but don’t stop there. Check out the full schedule on GAF so you’ll won’t miss any of the holiday movie goodness.

Reminder: With TDS TV+ you can simultaneously record up to 10 shows at once so you won’t miss any of the holidays you want to watch—regardless of where it’s showing! And, don’t forget that you can also use Start Over on TDS TV+ so you can catch up on anything you missed over the last 72 hours 😊.

If you want to keep enjoying the family-friendly programming GAF offers all year long, be sure to go to or give us a call at 1-888-225-5837 to upgrade your channel package!
