For the past few years, since Apple TV+ became the exclusive home for the Charlie Brown holiday specials, there was a partnership with PBS for us to see them there. However this year you won’t be able to catch the “Peanuts” gang on broadcast television this holiday season. Instead, you’ll only be able to stream the Charlie Brown holiday classics this year.
Apple has retained exclusive rights for 2022 but says they will provide special free windows for everyone to watch the holiday programs, even without a subscription:
- “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” will be available for free Oct. 28 – Oct. 31.
- Anyone can stream “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” Nov. 23 – Nov. 27.
“A Charlie Brown Christmas” will be available to all Dec. 22 – Dec. 25.
