Netflix strongly focuses on original content. During the holiday season, Netflix will have tons of new Christmas movies!

Here is a list of all the Hallmark Christmas movies (aka cheesy romantic comedies) available on Netflix! Many of them are Netflix Originals!

I loved watching Hallmark Christmas movies, although since I stopped watching cable TV, I have had to find alternative ways to watch them. Because I have all Apple products, I have the Hallmark TV app on Apple TV+. Cable TV isn’t even on my radar most of the time, but I miss being able to watch cheesy Christmas rom-coms.

All of these Netflix Christmas movies have a few things in common. They are predictable, cheesy, and probably won’t win any awards. But I enjoy them, like the Carol Higgins Clark Christmas mysteries (I read at least one every year). Despite knowing exactly what to expect, you are still delighted to spend a few hours with some hilarious characters!

You don’t need to worry if you don’t have Netflix on your TV! Streaming movies is easy with a device that you may already own!


If you recently bought a TV or Blu-Ray player, it likely has “Smart features.” If that’s the case, it should be possible to add Netflix to the device directly!


Netflix is available on most modern gaming consoles (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo Wii U).


Even if you don’t have a new TV or game console, you can still watch Netflix.


A super affordable option at $39, this device plugs into any HDMI slot and streams in minutes.


Coming in at the same price, the Amazon Fire Stick is just $39 as well! You can’t go wrong with either option!


Netflix’s selection of Christmas movies this year is fantastic. It’s like not missing cable at all!

There are a few family Christmas movies, too, so you should be able to find something for everyone.
