​TV Channel Dedicated To Christmas Films Returns Next Month

Everyone has their own little traditions when it comes to the festive season, from quaintly sitting around the fire and crafting multi-coloured paper chains as a family through to going out on Christmas Eve and getting absolutely smashed with your mates.

But whatever the big day involves, if there's one thing that can bring us all together it's a good old Christmas film, which we're all absolutely powerless to - the good ones, the bad ones, the poignant ones, the cheesy ones... You get the picture.

Well, you'll be delighted to hear that you'll be able to get into the spirit as early as next month, as this is when the TV channel dedicated entirely to festive films will be returning.

Formerly True Christmas, this year we'll be getting the Sony Movies Christmas channel to binge on for the next few months.

Premiering on 10 September and running up until the end of January, the channel will be showing a huge variety of seasonal films 24 hours a day.

According to The Sun, the channel won't just be showing classics like Elf and Polar Express, but also some never seen before on the channel - with debuts from the likes of Holiday Road Trip, Silver Bells and the 2004's Christmas With the Kranks, starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis.

There will also be themed weekends including 'Bah Humbug', 'Christmas Animals', 'Santa Sunday' and 'Christmas Comedy'.

At 7pm every night you'll also have to get your tissues at the ready, as there will be a daily emotional film on offer - including Moonlight & Mistletoe, Christmas Grace and All I Want Is Christmas.

The channel will be available every day on Freeview 50, Sky 319, Virgin 424 and Freesat 303.

Once the Sony Movies Christmas has launched, you'll also have less than two months to go until the return of another Christmastime staple: the almighty Greggs Festive Bake.

They'll be back in stores from 7 November, meaning it's only a matter of time before you can spend all day sitting in your pants, watching Christmas films on loop while chowing down on a Festive Bake or two... Sure, it may still be 122 days until it's officially Christmas, but with all this on the cards it'll sure feel like it's come early this year.
