Channel Playing 24/7 Christmas Movies Launching This Month

A TV channel that will play Christmas films 24 hours a day seven days a week will be launching later this month.

It may only be September but many of us are looking forward to the Christmas season. In fact, there's probably at least one or two of us who have been secretly listening to Christmas songs since July.

Christmas isn't just about presents and food, it's also about watching both good and bad Christmas films with your friends, family and loved ones, and while some may feel like these films should only be watched in December, one TV channel disagrees.

GREAT! Movies Christmas is a new pop-up channel that will temporarily replace GREAT! Movies Classic later this month.

It is available for free on Freeview, Sky, Virgin, and Freesat and will begin showing Christmas films all day every day from September 23rd to January 4th.

Though there are no specifics on what films will be shown, the channel has said they will include "Christmas Classics", "Christmas Presents", and "Christmas Comedy Capers".

They have promised to play Elf, Home Alone, Love Actually, The Polar Express, and The Grinch - aka all our Christmas favourites.

The channel will also feature exclusive content, such as Just in Time for Christmas starring Christopher Lloyd, Call Me Claus with Whoopi Goldberg, Crazy for Christmas, and Mariah Carey's A Christmas Melody.

Hopefully this new channel will get us all in the Christmas spirit for the next few months, especially after the year we've had.

Christmas fans must not forget that Netflix and Hallmark are also Christmas movie connoisseurs and they are likely to bring out a host of hilarious Christmas-themed comedies later this year.

Even though September has only just begun, Christmas is actually just 112 days away with shops beginning to put out Christmas decorations and sell presents too.

Bring it on!
