Where to watch all your favourite Christmas movies online

Christmas is a time for family, friends, food, and great TV! Christmas movies are a staple of the season and we all have our favourites that we rewatch year after year.

In the past, we could trust that classics would be aired on free-to-air TV channels before, during and after the holiday season, but with more and more of us switching to streaming as our sole TV platform, we may need to seek out our favourites on multiple platforms.

Where can I watch Love Actually this Christmas?

love actuallly

Love Actually is a modern-day classic, combining numerous heartfelt storylines and brilliant, sometimes bizarre performances from so many British actors. If you don’t have Love Actually on DVD and are counting on it being shown on TV, then we have some good news and some bad news (and then some more good news).

The good news is it will be on ITV this Christmas. The bad news is it will air on Friday 27th December at 10:10 pm, and you may well have had your fill of Christmas at that point.

The other good news is that Sky customers will be able to watch Love Actually whenever they want for free — available in the Sky Store to purchase for £0.00. It’s then yours to keep and watch whenever you need a little extra Christmas spirit.
