Here’s when Love Actually will be available to stream…

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a fair bit of relaxing in front of the TV (stuffing sandwich in hand; dad snoring on the sofa next to you) watching festive films and TV shows – would it?

From classic movies like It’s a Wonderful Life to recent Downton AbbeyChristmas specials, there are so many options when it comes to choosing at-home entertainment throughout December.

Making it easier for us to pick our Christmassy viewing schedule is streaming site Netflix, which has handily published all of its festive content that’s either available to stream currently or set to become available soon.
