Crown Media operates the Hallmark Channel and its spin-off Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in the United States, while it licenses the brand to NBCUniversal International Networks for the British channel of the same name. In 2003, Crown Media acquired The Jim Henson Company's half of Hallmark Channel in the UK, discontinuing all syndicated programming from Jim Henson Television.
Crown Media has no connection with the UK company Crown Media LLP.
On March 9, 2016, Hallmark Cards announced it was buying the remaining 3% of Crown Media Holdings from Liberty Media and taking the company private. The privatization was completed later that year.
