Where are Rudolph and Frosty? Classic Christmas Specials Blocked on Streaming Services

Ben Bowman

Every year, families look forward to being able to watch the 1964 stop-motion classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the 1969 animated special “Frosty the Snowman.” And every year, users of Live TV Streaming Services like Hulu Live TV and fuboTV encounter a nasty message when they try to watch: “This Program Is Unavailable For Streaming On The Internet”

What’s going on?

While they have the broadcast rights, CBS doesn’t have the rights to stream Rudolph or Frosty online, even though cable or antenna viewers would be able to see the special without trouble.

The only channel with streaming rights for these specials is Freeform, so if you do add Rudolph or Frosty to your DVR, you should be able to watch once they’re broadcast on Freeform. Rudolph first airs Saturday, December 3 at 9:15p/8:15c. Frosty airs the same day at 10:20p/9:20c. You can watch with a free trial of DIRECTV STREAM.

Freeform has wall-to-wall Christmas classics beyond those two favorites. You’ll also see “The Santa Clause,” “Home Alone,” “The Little Drummer Boy,” “Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and “Scrooged.”
