Carols are playing, decorations are up - the festive season is here! Not only does that mean there's a whole lot of shopping to be done, but it also means loads of feel-good Christmas movies are in order.
Netflix Australia has a massive lineup of Christmas movies in 2018, from the old-school classics like It's a Wonderful Life to hilarious kids' favourites like Shrek the Halls, and there is more than enough to keep you entertained for the coming months.
Make sure the popcorn is stocked up!
Netflix is regarded by many as the best streaming service in the country, and you can subscribe for $9.99 (basic), $13.99 (standard), or $17.99 (for premium 4K). Accounts are billed monthly, and Netflix can be cancelled at any time.
If you are thinking about joining, make sure you take into account your data requirements. If you plan on indulging in more than a few bingefests, you might want to consider an unlimited data plan with your internet provider.
Use Netflix Lists for Saving Favourites
Before we get stuck into the best Christmas movies on Netflix for this season, it's worth noting that Netflix has a very useful LIST feature available to members, and it is the best way to line up all your festive viewing.
With so much choice, Netflix can be overwhelming at times, so having a list saved can save you from losing precious time searching for, deliberating on, and arguing over what to watch with friends and family.
This is how to use a Netflix List:
- Search for movies in your Netflix account on your TV or device
- Select a movie and click on + MY LIST
The movie or series will be added to your list and ready to view whenever you're ready. To access your Netflix list at a later time, just click on "my list" on the top menu.
When you or the kids have some spare time, it's well worth making a Netflix list of must-watch Christmas movies so that when you finally get to the couch at the end of the day, you can launch straight into a favourite - or three!
