The eggnog lattes in red decorative cups have been spotted, and that officially means Christmas is coming. Every year, we here at Nerd Much? compile a mega guide to all of the Christmas movies on TV for that given year, taking all of the information from various networks and streaming giants and organizing it into an easily digestible post.

Of course, one of the most popular Christmas movies, Home Alone, wasn’t shown on cable television at all last year. So, we were stoked to find numerous airings of both Home Alone and Home Alone 2 in November and December of 2023.

Freeform (formerly ABC Family) has the cable rights for Home Alone and Home Alone 2 in 2023, and luckily, there are a few showings of each. We’ll be sharing when you can watch Home Alone on TV as soon as we get the holiday tv schedules from those networks. But, for now, here’s how to stream Home Alone right now.
