Charlie Brown Holiday Specials WILL be on Broadcast TV This Year
I wouldn't go as far and call it a Christmas miracle, but I would definitely say that it's a victory for the "little guy"
There was major outrage a few weeks back when it was announced that the Peanuts holiday specials would NOT air on regular television and it would only be viewed on APPLE TV+.
To say that people were pissed off is an understatement. The national public wanted heads to roll. APPLE TV+ did say that people could still see the holiday specials for free on their streaming service, but that wasn't good enough
Earlier today, APPLE TV announced that they are partnering with PBS, and the Charlie Brown specials will be able to be view on that network.
Some people are calling this a "Christmas Miracle"
So...Set your DVRs for Sunday, November 22nd at 7:30 p.m to watch "It's a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and set your DVRs for Sunday, December 13th at 7:30 p.m to watch "It's a Charlie Brown Christmas"
According to Comicbook:
Both holiday specials will also stream ad-free and in HD on Apple TV+. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will premiere on the service on November 18th and will be available for free from November 25 through November 27. A Charlie Brown Christmas will join the Apple TV+ streaming library on December 4th. The holiday special will be available for free from December 11 through December 13.
