Charlie Brown Christmas Airing on Primetime TV For 1 Night Only This Year: When, Where, How To Watch

by Kayla Zadel

A Christmas miracle is happening tonight as “A Charlie Brown Christmas” returns to cable for one night only.

News broke earlier this year that the Christmas staple, as well as other holiday classics, wouldn’t air on cable like they have in year’s past. As a result, this caused an uproar, and more than 260,000 “Peanuts” fans signed a petition to bring the special back to TV.

Fans are getting their Christmas wish as “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is coming back to cable for one night only!

Watch ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ on Broadcast TV

Mark your calendars, set your DVR, or do whatever is it you have to do to catch this Christmas classic on broadcast TV. The 30-minute special will air on PBS and PBS Kids this Sunday, December 13 at 7:30 pm local time.

Missed the Special? Here’s How to Watch

If you missed “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” don’t worry, there is a way to watch the iconic movie, but it’s going to cost you.

The holiday mode is streaming exclusively on Apple TV+ with a paid subscription. However, we always revel in the free trials, and Apple offers a 7-day free trial before having to cough up a coin.

Furthermore, the deal does get a bit sweeter. The movie is streaming now until December 13 on Apple TV+, and signing up for the streaming service is not necessary. That mean’s you get to avoid entering all of your personal information.

As of right now, Apple TV+ has not said how long it’s going to be available. Apple TV+ is the only streaming service that has the Peanuts movie. Disney+ and Netflix are unfortunately not options at this point.

Word to the wise, we recommend watching it sooner than later. Or there’s always the option to purchase the DVD on Amazon.
