It wouldn’t be the holiday season without the beloved classic movie, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Fortunately, the heartwarming Christmas film will be airing many times throughout November and December. Get ready to cozy up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa and a warm blanket. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” will air on CBS on Monday, November 22, and Saturday, December 11 (both at 8 p.m. ET.)

Freeform is the only network with streaming rights to our favorite reindeer story. You’ll have to wait until December 4, when you can stream it with a 7-Day Free Trial of fuboTV.
