Where can I watch A Charlie Brown Christmas?

Back in 2020, Apple TV+ acquired exclusive rights to various Charlie Brown animated specials, including It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. While PBS has been able to air the Christmas special for the past several years, Apple TV+ is the only way to watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for 2022.

The Company is offering non-subscribers a four-day window to view each special without the need to subscribe to “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” November 23-27 and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” November 22-25. Apple is also offering a seven-day free trial for new subscribers.
