It’s the most wonderful time of the year… to watch Elf, A Christmas Story, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Year Without a Santa Clause and more. If you can’t get enough of holiday movies, here are all the places for streaming Christmas movies so you can get your fix.
Amazon Prime Video
From holiday classics like Frosty’s Winter Wonderland and It’s a Wonderful Life to newer hits like The Holiday and Elf there’s a nice mix of traditional and modern holiday favorites to be found on Amazon Prime Video.
Cost: Free to $5.99/per movie
New kid on the streaming block, Disney+, is your place to find all three parts of The Santa Clause series, A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey, 12 Dates of Christmas, the original Miracle on 34th Street and their new original holiday movie, Noelle, starring Anna Kendrick.
If you want to stream Hallmark Christmas movies without a cable subscription, Frndly gives you access to 12 live channels — including all three Hallmark channels — for one low price. Download Hallmark’s checklist and check it twice to make sure you don’t miss any of their 24 new premieres in the 10th Anniversary of the Countdown to Christmas.
Hallmark Channel Everywhere app
Typically, you’ll need a cable TV subscription to access all of the content on the Hallmark Channel Everywhere app but as we get closer to the holidays they’ll unlock some content, including some holiday movies for free. So even without a cable subscription, you could stream some of your favorite Hallmark Christmas movies.
Cost: Free for some content
Some of your favorite made-for-TV holiday movies from Christmases Past can be found on Hulu including A Christmas Kiss 2, The Spirit of Christmas, A Very Brady Christmas, Holiday in Handcuffs and more.
The streaming giant is a little light on holiday classics (although they do have White Christmas), but they make up for that with original holiday movies. This year alone they’re releasing 10 brand new movies and series, including Holiday in the Wild, Let it Snow, The Knight Before Christmas and the third movie in A Christmas Prince series, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby.
P.S. If you, like me, absolutely can’t go a holiday season without watching Love, Actually it’s on HBO Go ($14.99/mo.) but it’s really the only holiday film on there… unless you count The Ref as a holiday movie.
