Where You Can Stream The Best Christmas Movies On Demand

'Tis the season to be streaming the most festive of titles for the whole family (and some just for the grown ups too!)

Whether you've already had your fill of Christmas movies this season or not, chances are that you haven't got round to watching all of them.

Here are seven titles that'll have you rocking around the Christmas tree in no time.

Happiest Season

Going home for the festive season can be stressful - especially if you're bringing your girlfriend home to meet the family. Oh, and you also haven't told them that you have a girlfriend... The newest Christmas title to arrive in 2020 is Happiest Season, starring Kristen Stewart, Daniel Levy, and Aubrey Plaza. A cute comedy with a heartwarming message, you can stream it via the Apple Store, Google Play, or on YouTube.

Home Alone and Home Alone 2

Macaulay Culkin's Kevin is the true hero of Christmas movies. Fending off Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern's Harry and Marv isn't easy - but he's so good at it he manages to do it twice. You can stream both of the Home Alone movies from Disney+, or by renting via other on demand services.

Last Christmas

A newer yuletide title if you missed it in cinemas last year is this romantic comedy starring Emilia Clarke. She stars as Kate, a down and out woman fed up of the festive season - that is until she meets the charming Tom, played by Henry Golding. You can catch Last Christmas on Sky Cinema and NOW TV.


Buddy the Elf, what's your favourite colour? Where would we be without this movie, really? Arguably one of the best Christmas movies ever, the Will Ferrell comedy movie sees one "Elf" journey to the distant land of New York City in search of his real father, spreading festive cheer all along the way. You can stream Elf via Virgin Media on demand.

The Holiday

Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black? Yes please! The Holiday has become a festive classic of sorts, taking the age-old life swap storyline down that festive route. Brimming with hilarious occurrences and romantic moments a-plenty, the movie is available to stream now on Netflix.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

The Charles Dickens holiday story was given The Muppet treatment during the early '90s, and still remains one of the better versions of the classic tale. When Michael Caine's Ebenezer Scrooge has three visits from ghosts of the past, present, and future, will he be able to see the error of his ways? If The Muppets have anything to do with it, yes he will. You can stream the movie on Disney+.

It's A Wonderful Life

Finally, it's the ultimate Christmas classic that is sure to get you in the festive mood. When George Bailey attempts to leave this world before his time, he is visited by his guardian angel, who attempts to show him all of the good he has done for the people of his town. It's A Wonderful Life is available to stream on Sky Cinema and NOW TV.
