How to Watch Elf Whenever You Want This Holiday Season

The holiday season is here! Which means you may be asking: How can I watch my favorite Christmas movies? Enter AMC’s Best Christmas Ever, a Christmas movie spectacular with over 700+ hours of family friendly holiday movies on-air and online, now through Christmas Day.

Specifically, this year you can watch 2003’s Elf and follow the No. 1 rule of the Code of the Elves and “Treat Every Day Like Christmas.”

With an all-star cast featuring Will Ferrell, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel and more, Elf follows Buddy (Ferrell), a human adopted and raised in the North Pole by Santa’s elves. After a life of Christmas cookies, toys and carols, Buddy discovers his biological father (Caan) is on the “naughty list” and sets out to redeem him — but winter in New York City is a lot different from life in Santa’s Workshop. Will Buddy’s Christmas spirit be enough to keep him afloat in the Big Apple? Directed by Jon Favreau, the Christmas comedy is celebrated as a modern holiday classic for kids and grownups alike.

Elf is available to watch with a cable login on and the AMC apps beginning December 1. Got an Apple TV, Roku, Xbox One or Fire TV? You’re in luck! Download the AMC app and start streaming Elf on your television right away. Looking for some Christmas cheer on the go? You can also watch Buddy the Elf on your mobile device with the AMC mobile app, available for iOS, Android, Windows and Fire Tablets.

Check out the full schedule here to see when your favorite holiday movies are airing on AMC. Don’t want to wait? Take a look at our full holiday offering of Christmas movies on and the AMC apps.
