When will the movie be on TV?

Since The Nightmare Before Christmas is also considered a Halloween movie, it’s already been on TV a bit over the last two months. But that doesn’t mean you’re running out of time to catch it — yet.

It’s a Disney movie — a detail that is often forgotten due to the production’s dark nature — so the Disney Channel has been showing it on a regular loop. Freeform, a channel owned by the Disney – ABC Group, will also be showing the movie throughout the month of December.

Can I stream it?

Streaming giant Netflix had The Nightmare Before Christmas in its queu last year, but doesn’t have it on its menu for the 2018 holiday season.

Thankfully there are plenty of other streaming platforms out there that carry the stop-motion animation hit. Hulu subscribers have access to it, plus it can be bought on Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, iTunes, YouTube, and Vudu.
