In the spirit of the season, you can watch one of the most iconic holiday television shows totally free online. ABC is making A Charlie Brown Christmas available completely free to anyone who wants to watch – you just have to do a little work to get it.
You’ll need to download the ABC app on your smart phone, tablet, or streaming device (Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV). Then, choose “All Shows” and then search alphabetically. Or, if you don’t have a streaming device, it’s simply available through the ABCs website here.
In this classic animated Christmas special, Charlie Brown finds himself overwhelmed by the bustle of the holiday season, but after he takes control of the school Christmas play, his Peanuts friends help him restore his spirit.
The show will of course have a few commercials you’ll need to sit through, but you won’t even have to sign up for an account if you watch through the web site. The show has aired on ABC for decades, but this marks the first time it’s been available for streaming through the company.
