Between my wife and I, our movie collection (Christmas included) is absurd. If it weren't for sports and the news, we would probably never watch basic cable. It's all about Netflix and Blue-rays at our place.

There are people--take my father for instance--that don't particularly care for these newfangled, fancy methods in which we now enjoy television. Some folks are perfectly happy with nine channels and a picture that isn't in the same vicinity of high-definition.

For the rabbit-ear-rockers, and 25-inch-screen gawkers out there, you can still find your favorite Christmas programs--with commercial interruptions every four minutes included--airing throughout the Christmas holiday.
