Once again we’ve seen the proof that when people want something to happen and REALLY speak up to make it happen, it does. This time it is the publics upset that the Charlie Brown holiday specials were not going to be available except on Apple TV+.
That news came out earlier this year and so many people got upset. It’s been tradition for many families to see the holiday specials like the Halloween special, the Thanksgiving special, and who hasn’t seen the Charlie Brown Christmas special? So the idea of either having to go without or pick up yet another, very specific streaming service to watch them? That made people cry out against it.
Apple cut a deal with PBS to bring favorites like “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” to PBS channels. The ad-free broadcasts will be available in primetime on November 22 at 7:30e/6:30c (Thanksgiving) and December 13 at 7:30e/6:30c. If you don’t get PBS or those dates don’t work you can find “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for free from Nov. 25 until Nov. 27 on the Apple TV+, and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will be available to customers for free from Dec. 11 until Dec. 13.
