Today is the last day of August, which means the temperatures are soon to drop and the festive season is practically right around the corner.

But whether or not you feel it’s too early to be thinking about Christmas at this point, it’ll soon be too tricky to escape from – and especially not when there’s a free TV channel showing festive film favourites non-stop set to launch in the UK next week.

You heard that right – Christmas films, 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

If you’re in need a little help getting into the festive spirit this year, then, by all accounts, it sounds like the return of the TV channel that charmed audiences in 2021 will do just that.

GREAT! movies christmas is the UK’s biggest seasonal channel that’s back “earlier than ever” this year and ready to get festive from Thursday 8 September.


“Let’s face it – it’s never too early for Christmas,” the broadcaster claimed.

The 24-hour, feel-good and free-to-air channel will be bursting with non-stop Christmas spirit, and will be showing a heartwarming lineup of festive films – including some absolute fan-favourite classics that make it to screens every year without fail, alongside some cheesy Hallmark classics, new channel premieres, and so much more.

It’ll be on air right through until Monday 2 January 2023.
