It’s officially December and we are in the thick of the holiday season. One of my favorite holiday activities is traditional viewings of my favorite holiday TV shows and movies. I really love the Rankin and Bass productions like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and a Year without a Santa Claus. I have copies of both of these shows, as well as others, but it’s nice to know if something should happen to those copies, that I can rely on ABC Family Channel and their 25 Days of Christmas throughout December. What’s even better is that there is an ABC Family app for iPhone and iPad.

This app helps fans keep track of their favorite shows on the Schedule tab and allows you to view some titles on demand on your device.

While I am very excited to have the 25 Days of Christmas schedule in the palm of my hand, I’m a little disappointed that the on-demand video is only the ABC Original programming. That really is my only complaint. It’s a clean, solid app and even though they don’t allow users access to ALL the holiday shows they broadcast, the on-demand interface is easy to use and works really well.

I recommend the ABC Family app for those of you who want to keep up with your holiday viewing schedule.
