What Christmas movies are on Netflix UK? A full list (2017)
VOD News | On 20, Nov 2017
What Christmas movies are on Netflix UK? That’s the question we always find ourselves asking, as the nights grow dark and the real world gets too cold for normal human beings. So, with only a matter of weeks to go until the big day, we present to you the full list of Christmas films and TV shows available on Netflix UK in 2017.
After several years of underwhelming nutcrackers, this year’s festive catalogue is… slightly less rubbish. Once upon a time, Scrooged was the best Christmas title on Netflix UK, but now, it’s joined by Love Actually. Even better news, some of the previous seasonal slips, from Santa Baby 2 to the dire Holiday in Handcuffs, are nowhere in sight – although there are still no fewer than three Power Rangers Christmas specials available.
Here’s a full list of Christmas titles on Netflix UK, including those coming soon this month and next month. To help sort the naughty from the nice, we’ve included links to our reviews.
