How to Watch The Polar Express Any Time You Want This Holiday Season

All aboard! Celebrate the holidays with your favorite Christmas movies all month long with 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.

One of this year’s holiday hits available to stream is 2004’s The Polar Express, so you can take a journey to discover the magic of Christmas with the whole family — all month long!

Featuring the voices of Tom Hanks, Daryl Sabara, Steven Tyler and more, The Polar Express is a fantastical retelling of the beloved children’s book of the same name. The film follows a young boy (Sabara) who, while struggling to believe in Santa, discovers a steam engine train bound for the North Pole stopped outside his suburban home. Beckoned onboard the Polar Express by the magnetic conductor (Hanks), the boy makes new friends on the train and they work together through thrilling adventures before arriving in the North Pole to meet Santa Claus and witness “the first gift of Christmas.” Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away, A Christmas Carol), this family Christmas movie has become a holiday classic for kids and adults alike.

The Polar Express 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? Hallelujah!
