Where to Watch 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' This Holiday Season
So what if you've seen A Charlie Brown Christmas 5,000 times already? Nostalgia for the damn thing never fades. Between its multiple award wins and the fact that it was responsible for the demise of the aluminum artificial Christmas tree industry, the Peanuts holiday special is forever, firmly (and wisely) entrenched in the Christmastime consciousness.
Wanna see Linus' inspirational holiday speech yet again this holiday season? Here's how to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas without breaking a sweat:
Catch it live on TV
ABC is airing the Peanuts crew's Christmas extravaganza on November 30, at 8pm EST. Even if you don't have cable, you should still be able to get ABC on your TV by using a digital antenna -- it's an essential tool in every cord-cutter's utility belt.
If you miss it on ABC, you can also stream the Peanuts special in HD on any of your devices via Amazon Video or Xfinity. And if all else fails (read: if you don't have those subscriptions), there's always the option to buy the special ($9.99 for SD, $12.99 for HD) on iTunes.
Or listen to the album
Vince Guaraldi Trio's classic piano jazz album is live for listening on Spotify. If you can't catch the actual special this year, loop the record during your holiday travels. Become Charlie Brown.
