If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit by sitting down with a good ol’ Christmas special, then you are in luck. There are quite a few streaming services to choose from with old and new movies to watch.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video is a great way to see quite a few Christmas movies without having to pay extra. If you’re already subscribed to Amazon Prime, which is $120 per year, then you won’t have to worry about paying extra for some movies. It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol are some of the Christmas classics that are free with Amazon Prime. There are some more on there, but you may have to rent them through Prime Video.
If you don’t mind spending some money to rent or purchase a movie, then you’ll love some of the other Christmas movies and shows you can get with this service:
- Home Alone
- A Christmas Story
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer
- I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown
Trusty Netflix also has several options for Christmas movies, so you’ll be cozy watching them all on your couch. There are different prices for the three different tiers of Netflix: Basic for $9 a month, Standard at $13 a month, and Premium for $16 a month. The Basic package allows you to have one stream at a time, Standard allows two streams along with HD content, and the Premium package allows up to four screens with HD and Ultra HD content included. That means you can watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas and White Christmas in the best quality available.
If you’re looking for a great service with lots to offer, then you should see the other movies that are available on Netflix:
Although Hulu‘s Christmas selection is a bit more scarce than the other options, it is still a great contender for some different movie choices. Hulu also has three tiers, with the standard plan costing $5 a month, the No Ads version for $11 a month, and then $45 a month for all Hulu content and live TV.
Some of the movies you’ll find on this site are A Very Brady Christmas, Home for the Holidays, Krampus Unleashed, and Hallmark movies like Rodeo and Juilet and Naughty or Nice. These are great classic Christmas movies, along with a newer, scarier Christmas tale like Krampus.
