Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol online - US viewers
If you're based in the US I have good and bad news. The good news is that you can watch The Muppet Christmas Carol online... the bad news is that it's not available to stream on Netflix or any of the other major streaming service subscription sites. Fear not though, because you can rent it on Amazon Prime for just $3.99 (that's worth the price of keep everyone happy, surely?) or buy it for $12.99 if you'd like to own the Christmas classic forever.
For those of you who don't know, renting a film on Amazon Prime gives you 30 days to start watching it, which means you can rent it now, while you have some spare time, and still watch it come Christmas Day. Once you start watching, however, you only have three days to finish the film so if grandpa falls asleep half way through he better make sure he catches up on Boxing Day or else...
