We're all a sucker for a festive film: from Elf, to Home Alone to The Holiday... there are some staples which the nation collectively watch every year without fail.

So when we heard that there was once again going to be a TV channel dedicated to Christmas movies this year, we were so excited.

While last year we binged on the True Christmas channel to our heart's content, this year it will be Sony Movies Christmas channel bringing all of the classics into our homes.

And what's more, it launches NEXT MONTH. That means we can put the tree up in September this year, right?!

New Line Cinema

The channel will be showing the classics alongside some movies it has never shown before, such as Holiday Road Trip, Silver Bells and and Christmas With the Kranks.

It will showcase its films in themed weekends, including 'Santa Sunday,' 'Christmas Comedy,' 'Bah Humbug' and 'Christmas Animals'.

Every night they will also schedule in an emotional film at 7pm - so get your tissues ready, as there will be everything from Christmas Grace and All I Want Is Christmas airing for when we want a soppy night in.

Universal Pictures

The Sony Movies channel is available to watch 24/7 on Freeview 50, Sky 319, Virgin 424 and Freesat 303.

This isn't the only exciting Christmas movie news, as a Home Alone reboot was recently announced as one of the many new Disney+ revivals.

While some were simply thrilled to get a new take on the movie, the news didn't come lightly for many, with cries of 'Why touch a classic?!' echoing across social media.

Plus, a George Michael themed film named Last Christmas was also announced, set to air on 15th November.

Starring Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke - who plays Kate, the relatable female lead who works as an elf in her local department store - Emma Thompson will also appear, taking on the role of Emilia's ageing mother.

Meanwhile Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding will emerge as Emilia's love interest Tom, and Fleabag's Sian Clifford plays her sister.

What a cast!

Aspiring singer Kate's love of George Michael is a running theme throughout, and his music provides a heartwarming familiar soundtrack, including an unreleased six minute track.

Some might say that it's too early for all this festive excitement, but quite frankly, we're here for it.
