Every year we want to watch Elf. And Love Actually. And The Holiday. And Home Alone. And every year, without fail, we lose an entire evening flicking between different service providers and streaming apps trying to find out which one has which films. Anyway, this Christmas, to save the faff, we’ve created a feature to act as your handy holiday movie guide.
Scroll down to find out where you can watch your fave festive films for 2021…
Elf – You can rent for £3.49 from Prime Video, or buy for £7.99. It’s also on Sky Cinema which you can also access with a NOW TV pass (you can get a 7-day free trial here).
Home Alone – You can watch the entire Home Alone franchise (including the unknown ones that came after the original and Home Alone 2) over on Disney+. You can also rent it (£3.49) or buy it (£9.99) on Prime Video.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas – Jim Carrey’s remake of the Dr. Seuss classic is available for Sky TV customers and can also be watched via a NOW TV pass.
