Where to watch A Christmas Story Christmas

America has many Christmas traditions: drinking eggnog that may or may not be spiked with alcohol, singing outdated carols to random strangers, avoiding weird relatives during dinner, and listening to Mariah Carey endlessly proclaim that all she wants for Christmas is you. But it wouldn’t be the holidays without at least one viewing — and usually many more than that — of A Christmas Story, the nostalgic 1983 movie that introduced the world to Ralphie Parker and the immortal phrase, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”

Almost 40 years later, the classic film is getting a sequel (yes, another one; there have been many throughout the years). A Christmas Story Christmas sees an adult Ralphie return to his hometown with his own wife and children in tow. Unlike its predecessor, this film won’t screen in theaters as it’s debuting exclusively on a streaming service. But which one?

Where is A Christmas Story Christmas streaming?

If you want to follow the exploits of Ralphie and his family, including another encounter with ginger-haired bully Scut Farkus and a reunion with childhood friends Flick and Schwartz, we’ve got you covered. A Christmas Story Christmas will stream on HBO Max. You don’t have to wear a pink rabbit costume while watching it, but it couldn’t hurt.

When does it stream for subscribers?

A Christmas Story Christmas will stream exclusively for subscribers on November 17, just in time for the holiday season to kick into high gear.

How much does it cost to subscribe?

If you’re not a current HBO Max subscriber, but you’re interested in watching A Christmas Story Christmas, there are a couple of different rates you can pay for access to the service. The cheapest rate includes ads, and starts at $10 a month, or $100 for a full year. If you want an ad-free experience, you can pay $15 a month or $150 for a full year.

This makes HBO Max one of the pricier streaming services out there, but it also gives you access to a pretty broad array of titles. including all of the HBO original programming that has ever been made. We’re talking such classic series as The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, and The Wire, as well as current hits like The Staircase, Irma Vep, and House of the Dragon.

HBO Max also has many selections from the Warner Bros. library like The Batman and Don’t Worry Darling and anime classics from Studio Ghibli and Crunchyroll. In short, it’s a lot of great stuff.

Well, we haven’t seen it yet, but if you’re a fan of the original, there’s plenty of promise here. Peter Billingsley returns to the role of Ralphie, and looks to bring the same wry charm he brought to the role as a child four decades ago. Also returning is Ian Petrella as Randy, Ralphie’s brother, as well as R.D. Robb and Scottie Schwartz as Ralphie’s pals, and Zack Ward as everyone’s favorite scowling childhood bully. Vince Vaughn serves as the film’s narrator, taking over from Jean Shepherd, who wrote the novel In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, on which A Christmas Story was based.

A Christmas Story Christmas currently has a score of 57% on the Tomatometer.

This underrated 2016 action comedy is just as good as Chinatown. Here’s why you should watch it
The Nice Guys - Gosling and Crowe

Shane Black's The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, is a comedic homage to classic LA films like Chinatown, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and L.A. Confidential in which down-and-out detectives uncover far-reaching Machiavellian conspiracies that have dire implications for the future of society.

While The Nice Guys foregrounds Black's fun-loving tribute to the genre over its more serious cautionary themes, the writer/director still makes a point to condemn greedy and short-sighted institutions -- in this case, those that have accelerated climate change. In an era in which billionaires and oligarchs have brought us to the financial and ecological brink, The Nice Guys and its cinematic forerunners seem more relevant than ever.

Peacock isn't as popular as some of the bigger streaming services out there, but it's a crucial addition for fans of the Premier League. That's because it airs many of the games while being fairly inexpensive at $6 per month. There isn't a Peacock TV free trial but at this kind of price, it's worth investing in the ad-supported model. Besides all those Premier League matches including Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur, you also have the best shows on Peacock to check out.
