Don’t worry--thanks to streaming services, you don’t have to leave the comfort and warmth of indoors every time you want to get into the season.
So grab some hot chocolate, a cozy blanket, and a viewing buddy, and check out our guide to all the best streaming services for holiday entertainment:
Amazon Prime Instant Video
It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
Amazon’s selection of seasonal entertainment is a little limited, but quality can often be better than quantity. Amazon’s library includes a few can’t-miss classics, including Bad Santa, The Apartment, and all-time fave It’s A Wonderful Life.
Love Actually (2003)
Similarly, HBO Go has just a couple seasonal options--but you definitely don’t want to miss them! These snowy hits include Great Expectations (1974), Jingle All The Way, and Love Actually. To us, that’s perfect!
Conversely, Netflix wants to make sure you don’t have time to watch all of their holiday media options before December ends. (At least, it certainly seems that way!) Their offerings include Netflix originals like Klaus, The Knight Before Christmas, and A Christmas Prince. Other available films include Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), The Grinch (2018), Christmas With The Kranks, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, The Star, and White Christmas.
“A Rugrats Chanukah” (2006)
Though Hulu is most well-known for its television offerings, its holiday options provide a little something for everyone, including A Bad Moms’ Christmas, Home for the Holidays, The Night Before, Bridget Jones’ Diary, A Very Brady Christmas (1988), and even “A Rugrats Chanukah” (Rugrats Season 4 Episode 1)!
The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
The newest streaming service on the block, Disney Plus has quickly become the go-to source for family-friendly holiday films, both classic and brand new. Available movies include Noelle, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and Miracle on 34th Street.
