Welcome to the 25th edition of The Cord Cutter Podcast! Now that everyone's finished their leftover turkey and cranberry sauce, December is right around the corner, and that means the time is right for holiday movies! Join us this week as Mick and Adrienne welcome CinemaBlend editor Corey Chichizola back to the show to talk about holiday streaming! If you enjoy the Christmas season at all it's unlikely that you end any year without indulging in at least a few holiday classics. From It's a Wonderful Life to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and How the Grinch Stole Christmas to A Christmas Story, there are many, many beloved films and holiday specials to choose from if you're looking to get into the spirit of the season (or, keep that good, warm feeling going strong).
This week, Mick, Adrienne and Corey will discuss made-for-TV holiday movies available to stream, their favorite Christmas specials and films to enjoy during the season, what they think you should watch for a great time this December and much more. If you're in the mood for some non-streaming holiday options, be sure to check out our holiday movie schedule to see when you can catch old favorites and new Christmas films this year.
