What’s Coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in December 2017

December is right around the corner and with it comes holiday greetings, inexplicable fruitcake, and the inevitable visits from family members. So in order to help you get in the mood or to keep those holiday guests entertained, the streaming services are here to help you whether you’ve been naughty or nice.

Netflix is helping to kickstart the Christmas cheer with Disney’s “Santa Clause” films, “You Can’t Fight Christmas” and a holiday special from “Trolls.” Christmas not your thing? There’s still plenty of new non-holiday content to watch like Eminem’s “8 Mile,” season 2 of “The Crown,” “Planet Earth II” — albeit without Snoop Dogg’s narration, and the new fantasy cop movie “Bright.”

Aside from delivering gifts this holiday season, Amazon is also delivering quality films this December. The “Kill Bill” and “Rocky” series will both be available to stream along with other classic films like “Apocalypse Now,” “Silence of the Lambs” and “Titanic.”

Hulu is also here to help provide some hearty holiday cheer at home with films like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “One Magic Christmas,” and “Chilly Christmas.” Other fun films to check out include “Space Jam,” the “Robocop” series, “George of the Jungle” and “Superbad.”
