A Netflix spokesperson says Lifetime and Hallmark shouldn't worry about its Christmas films encroaching on their territory. "We make films, they make made-for-TV movies,” the spokesperson tells Marie Claire, adding: “They do that stuff really well and we’re really not trying to tread on their toes—we have a very different set of things we’re offering." Meghan Hooper, Lifetime’s senior vice president of original co-productions and acquisitions, responds that Netflix "can call them what they want to, but they’re the same. It doesn’t bother me if Netflix wants to spin them in a slightly different way, but I don’t think the audience is looking for a spin—they love the movies as they are." Hooper did acknowledge that Netflix Christmas movies "certainly have a higher budget."
