Here’s a great way to keep the kids busy during the holidays seasons. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can stream thousands of popular movies, including Christmas movies, to your computer, HDTV, Kindle or other compatible device. It’s easy and you’ll find plenty of free movies available for watching online. (If you’re not already a Prime member, sign up for the free trial and you’ll get access to all the features of Prime, including the videos.) Then get ready to have fun watching holiday movies for free!

To get started, be sure to sign into your Amazon Prime account. Then go to the Prime Instant Video category and start searching. You can find all the family-friendly movies by clicking the Kids and Family link in the left navigation bar under Popular Genres, or you can look for holiday movies by searching for “Christmas.”

Free movies will be easy to identify because they’ll have a green button that says “Watch Now $0.00.” Just click the button to start streaming to your computer, HDTV, Kindle, etc. You’ll usually also have an option to rent or buy the movie. But if you just want to sit the kids down with something to watch, why buy when you can stream for free? Here are 5 free Christmas movies to get started.
