How to Watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for Christmas

Get some cocoa and curl up because it's time for another viewing of this beloved Christmas classic

Kaitlin Thomas

It's December, you're snuggled up on the couch with some cocoa (or your holiday libation of choice)  but is it truly Christmas without an annual viewing of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? The beloved stop-motion TV special will air many times this holiday season, so you have plenty of chances to watch it on both CBS and Freeform. And don't forget to sing along to the classic carol! 

Telecast every year since its debut in 1964, the holiday special, which includes the famous title tune as well as "Holly Jolly Christmas" and "We're a Couple of Misfits," will air on both CBS and Freeform this year. So clear your schedules and settle in for the classic tale about everyone's favorite reindeer (sorry, Prancer).

You can catch Rudolph, Sam the Snowman, Hermey, and everyone else at the following dates and times (all times Eastern):

Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 8:50 p.m. on Freeform

Wednesday, Dec. 25 at 5 p.m. on Freeform

You can also catch it on Hulu with a live TV subscription.
