Crackle is a well-known site where you can stream and watch movies online for free, along with some TV shows and original programs. The site is known mainly for action, horror and thriller movies, and so the one Christmas-themed movie available there is somewhat “anti-Christmas,” unless all you want for Christmas is some green, slimy ectoplasm along with a good dose of Bill Murray. If so, you can see him and the gang save Christmas — and New York, again — in “Ghostbusters II.”

Of course, if you need more Christmas themed programming to watch, you can always find out more about streaming Christmas TV Shows. You  can also use our comparison tool to shop for a great Cable TV or other entertainment package.
