It’s almost Christmas, which means we’ll be spending more and more time on our sofa, watching film after film and eating chocolate after chocolate from our Celebrations box. (Except Bountys. No one likes Bountys.) Christmas also means travelling home - and when you have a six-hour train journey ahead of you, it can be nice to plan ahead and select some films to watch on the way. With ASDA Mobile’s 12GB data plan, you’ll be able to stream movies online anywhere, anytime, without burning through your data 20 minutes into your favourite film. Here’s a list of our favourite films to stream this holiday season:

Love Actually

It’s a classic for a reason - Love Actually, everyone’s mum’s favourite Christmas film, is now available to stream on Netflix!

Blackadder’s Christmas Carol

Blackadder’s Christmas special is a hilarious parody of A Christmas Carol, and turns the original story on its head by turning the nicest man in England into a bitter, vengeful Scrooge. Head to Netflix to watch it now!


Will Ferrell fans will love this - instant Christmas classic Elf is available to stream on Amazon Prime!

Black Mirror - White Christmas

If you’re after a less traditional holiday watch, head to Netflix and watch Black Mirror’s 2014 Christmas special. Dark, with a touch of humour and plenty of snow - what’s not to like?

Bad Santa

Another less-than-traditional Christmas film, yet one of the most hilarious. Fans of dark, rude humour will love streaming this on Now TV this winter!

The Grinch

Amazon Prime users: now’s your chance to watch Jim Carrey at his best - as the mean, green, Christmas-hating Grinch.

The Holiday

Rom-com lovers, this one’s for you: Nancy Meyers’ The Holiday is now available to stream on Amazon Prime.

It's A Wonderful Life

Is there a more iconic Christmas film? When George Bailey wishes he’d never been born, his guardian angel decides to show him how much of an impact George has had on his community. Head to Now TV to watch it!


Christmas horror-comedy movie Krampus, starring Adam Scott, is one of the only films that manages to mix Christmas legends with genuine scares and lots of laughs. Head to Netflix to watch it now!


Another hilarious retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, this time starring Bill Murray - what’s not to love? Scrooged is available to stream on Netflix.
