Netflix has released several original new movies to run alongside its library of past favourites and classics, while other streamers are getting in on the action too, including Apple TV+, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video.

Last year, it was revealed that a record number of Christmas movies had been made and released. More than 200 new festive feature films and TV movies naming the holiday were listed on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) for release in 2021 – a figure that had more than doubled since 2016, and quadrupled since 2011.
“For viewers, it’s just a way to escape and to feel for at least two hours this little bit of peace in the midst of the craziness of the holiday season and the craziness of the world in which we have lived in the last couple years,” Brandon Gray, co-host of the Deck The Hallmark podcast said.
