It just wouldn’t feel like Christmas without sitting down to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, so here are your options for watching it on TV or streaming it online in the United States in 2022.
The Christmas classic from 1964 is one of those movies that help make the holiday season feel even more like Christmas, and without it, watching Christmas-themed programming on television during the holidays just wouldn’t be the same. This year, there are several different ways that you can view the classic film.
RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER 1964
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a stop-motion animated Christmas television special that originally aired on CBS in 1964 and has been shown on the network every year since 1972.

The song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was written by Johnny Marks in 1949 and the special was based on it. The song, in turn, was based on the poem of the same name, which was written in 1939 by Marks’ brother-in-law, Robert L. May.
The narrative focuses on Rudolph, the youngest and smallest of Santa’s reindeer, who is known for his noisy and sparkly red nose. Rudolph is asked to assist Santa in delivering presents on Christmas Eve as it becomes apparent that the weather may prevent him from leaving the North Pole. If he is successful, Christmas will be saved.
Since it has been broadcast annually on television in the United States since 1964, it holds the record for the longest-running Christmas TV special in the country’s history.
