Made for TV/Direct to Video Christmas Movies

Some of the best Christmas movies haven’t been released into theaters, but rather have been released on to television or straight to DVD. I am working to remove the Lifetime, Hallmark and Freeform movies from this list to avoid duplicated. If you see anything missing, please email host@researchchristmas.com.
