Quick Look: Don't believe what you read in the Roku Channel Store - Christmas Zone Holiday Movies no longer includes any Charlie Brown or Frosty the Snowman titles, and this version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is an 8-minute animation from 1949 rather than the 1964 stop-motion television special that is still broadcast today.
But this Roku channel does provide a Christmas-themed collection of vintage movies and cartoons, a few modern-era holiday films, and other videos, including the following:
- New Christmas Tales - Five feature-length films that include By God's Grace (2013), a film that offers many lessons on the importance of giving; Mister Scrooge to See You (2013), a children's film that is a lighthearted and entertaining follow-up to Dicken's classic tale; and Christmas on Hwy 101 (2015), which takes you on a ride with the legendary band Highway 101 as they take you on a musical journey of inspiring and heartwarming holiday songs.
- Treasured Christmas Classics - Three vintage films: The Miracle on 34th Street (1955), Scrooge (1935), and the aforementioned Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1949).
- Cartoons - Seven vintage animated shorts.
- America's Funniest Christmas - AFV - Many of the 40 videos in this category don't appear to be from America's Funniest Videos, but you will find a few clips from the popular TV show along with compilations and short videos showing babies, kids, adults, and pets doing funny things.
- Kidsongs Christmas - Four Christmas songs from the Kidsongs YouTube channel.
- Live Christmas Scenes and Music - A half-hour video showing snow falling while Christmas music plays.
- DIY Christmas - Forty videos with topics such as "How to Pick a Perfect Christmas Tree," "Setting a Holiday Table," and "Decorating a Fireplace."
