Can you smell it in the air – fruit cake, pine trees, apple cider? I know I can. I can’t wait for the holidays to begin – it’s my favourite time of year. Spending time with the family and friends, eating too much turkey and oh yeah, the presents. I admit it, I love giving and getting presents. I’m still a kid at heart, I suppose. Over the next month I know I’ll be spending a lot of my free time checking out The Holiday Channel on Rogers On Demand Online. We’ve gone through and collected the best tv shows, free movies, and holiday rentals for you to watch to get yourself in the festive spirit.
Holiday Movies and TV Shows - There are lots of great holiday tv shows and films that you can watch right now on Rogers On Demand Online. You can catch free prime time holiday episodes of hits like 2 Broke Girls and Mad Men. We’ll also be adding in lots of free holiday themed films throughout the month of December, including A Christmas Story and the original Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory! Rogers Customers can also check out free classic Holiday themed retro tv including episodes of Cagney and Lacey and The Addams Family. Yes, even the Addams Family had Christmas episodes.

Holiday Rentals – The Holiday Channel also features lots of great movies that you can rent from the comfort of your laptop and watch wherever you want in your home. If you’re looking for brand new releases, you’ll find Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas, Becoming Christmas and Holiday Engagement ready to be rented. For more recent films that have become a holiday favourite, you can check out Vince Vaughn and Resse Witherspoon in Four Christmases, or Will Farrell in Elf, which is a favourite amongst all the folks I work with at Rogers On Demand Online. If you’ve got little ones in your family, there are also lots of Thomas & Friends and Bob The Builder movies to choose from in The Holiday Channel. And be sure to check back regularly, as we’ll be adding more holiday rentals all through December.
There’s already lots of great content to choose from in The Holiday Channel, with even more on the way. So really, there’s no reason anybody should be saying “bah hum-bug” throughout December.
On that note, I’m going to go rent Four Christmases, one of my favourite holiday films. What’s one of yours?
