I love the Christmas Box with Richard Thomas and Annette O'Toole. I have it on my sky+ to watch whenever I like. I also like Fallen Angel, which isn't strictly a Christmas film, but it is all snowy and romantic anyway.

Some of them are so bad they're good! There was one shown a few days ago about a troubled teenage celeb who choked on an olive and came back as a ghost lol pure cheese. Also love the first Mrs Merkel film, not so much the.sequel.

Watch out for Christmas in Boston, Snow, Chasing Christmas, Snowglobe and The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year - not great, but the best of the cheesey bunch

At least they seem to have a bunch of new made for tv movies this year instead of just using the same handful they normally churn out. One of the better ones so far has to be Snow which was quite decent compared to the usual offerings, most of which get less than 4 on IMDB.

Universal seem to have content from ABC Family this time around so hopefully there will be some better quality films available.

Weeell... Christmas24 are stretching the truth when they describe some of these films as premieres - this is my 3rd Christmas24 year, and Christmas In Boston has been on each year, Snow and Snow 2 for the past two years, and they just won't repeat The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year which is the best of the lot by far.

I take it that they are bringing back the christmas 24 channel? Are there ever any big budget films shown on that channel like Miracle on 34th street, for instance?

No way! We're talking TV movie fodder here, and *American* TV movies at that! The sort of movie where you can go to the kitchen for 20 mins to fix lunch and not miss any important plot lines that you couldn't fill in the gaps yourself.

If you want top-of-the-range Xmas movies then it's the Sky Christmas movie channel you want, and you have to have one of their movie packages to get that.

I thought that was the case. I have never managed to sit down and really watch it because I am always busy rushing around. But, I could tell it was not prime material just by looking at the TV guide as I have not recognized any of the films.

It's a good channel if you ever wondered what happened to faded TV "stars" like Shelley Long as they usually end up in a Christmas TV movie sooner or later should their career go downhill The younger female "stars" are usually Maxim/GQ/Nuts/etc fodder.
