After what can only be described as a tepid summer, to say the least, it’s only natural that we’re starting to look forward to the next best thing in the annual calendar: Christmas. Yep, we’re cracking out the ‘C’ word already, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally have something to look forward to.
Bringing the festival spirit by the bucket load, free TV channel GREAT! Movies Classic has announced that they’ll be launching an all-Christmas-everything channel this month, with festive-themed films screening around the clock, seven days a week.
Kicking off the festive fun on Thursday, September 8, the GREAT! Movies Christmas channel will not only be airing the classics, but a number of free-to-watch premieres, too, including exclusives such as Mariah Carey’s A Christmas Melody and Call Me Claus starring Whoopi Goldberg, to name a few. There will also be exclusive channel premieres such as ‘The Mistletoe Promise’, ‘A Taste of Christmas’, ‘Christmas Cupcakes’, ‘Welcome to Christmas’ and many more.
Screening right up until January 2, 2023, the 24/7 channel will be available to watch on Freeview, Freesat, Sky and Virgin, and is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit once you’ve completed Netflix’s ever-impressive Christmas offering (which I’m positive our Secret London Editor, Alex, could harp on all day about – particularly if it involves Vanessa Hudgens!).
