‘Twas the week before Christmas and on the TV, lots of holiday favorites, fun for our eyes to see!
Here are a few of the holiday shows I’m looking forward to watching with my Curve 50 Indoor HDTV Antenna on the days leading up to Christmas.
Broadcasting Christmas Cheer
New for 2014, this program airs Monday, December 15th and again on Monday the 22nd, on ABC.
It’s aired before, but I’ll be watching it again because it’s that good! It will be broadcast on Thursday, December 18th and again on the 22nd on the CW network.
The National Christmas Tree Lighting 2014 and Christmas in Norway with the St. Olaf Choir are two PBS holiday programs broadcast in high definition on Saturday, December 20th. ION Television will be broadcasting My Santa, and ABC I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown, while NBC will have The Sound of Music Live! on air.
You can enjoy this Dr. Seuss classic twice on Christmas Day starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. First, catch the 1966 animated classic immediately followed by the Jim Carrey live-action rendition. He’s a mean one, Mr. Grinch, but being able to watch for free sure is nice!
Programming availability and times will vary depending upon your time zone. Be sure to refer to the programming guides below to get current information on these and other programs available over-the-air during the days before Christmas.
TV Guides to Help You Find More Christmas Specials
You can go to individual network websites and look at their programming schedules, or you can find TV programming guides that suit your needs. Some of them have iOS and Android apps available for your mobile devices too. Making it very easy for a cord cutter to add a free app, and use their smartphone or tablet to check what’s on TV.
These are my 3 favorite easy to use interactive TV guides. All of them have free apps and provide users with a quick reference to over-the-air programming available in a specific geographic area.
BuddyTV is an online programming guide that’s available as an app for iOS and Android devices. I like using this iOS app because I can set-up reminders for holiday shows I want to watch and then receive notifications on iPad when the shows are about to start.
TitanTV is another TV guide source, which gives you the option to customize and then print the guide if you wish.
