Where to Watch Christmas Movies

There are a lot of new Christmas Movies coming out this year. Luckily, you can watch Christmas Movies on a variety of streaming services, cable, and traditional television stations. The main channels for Christmas Films are Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hallmark, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Hulu, Peacock, Lifetime, and BET. In fact, a subscription to any of these channels gets you ample options for Christmas movies for the holidays. And if you have Amazon Prime, you can often just add a free trial of one of these channels without fully subscribing. If you’re trying to save your money, consider only adding a streaming service for one month, or grab a free trial from those who offer it. 

How to Watch the New Hallmark Christmas Movies without the Hallmark Channel?

If you don’t have cable, then your best bet is to head to Peacock and grab a $6 subscription to the Hallmark Channel. By far the cheapest option in a sea of Live TV rates, at $60 or more on most streaming services. Peacock allows you to watch the Hallmark Countdown to Christmas Movies live and then up to 3 days after they air.
