When it comes to classic movies, almost nothing is arguably more Christmas-themed than Miracle on 34th Street.

This Christmas comedy-drama film was originally released by 20th Century Fox. Starring Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood, and Edmund Gwenn, the award-winning film was a big deal when it first came out in 1947, and remains a pretty big deal to this day, especially around the holidays. And for good reason.

The critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes reads, “Irrefutable proof that gentle sentimentalism can be the chief ingredient in a wonderful film, Miracle on 34th Street delivers a warm holiday message without resorting to treacle.” In other words, it’s really, really good, and you don’t have to be in the Christmas spirit to see that.

So the question becomes, where can you watch it? Here’s what we know.

Is Miracle on 34th Street streaming on Netflix?

Unfortunately, neither the 1947 nor the 1994 version can be found on the streaming service. But in the spirit of unexpected miracles, let’s not rule out its Netflix arrival in the future at some point, even if Disney currently owns 20th Century Fox.

For now, there are a few other places you can buy, rent, or stream the Christmas classic. So let’s take a look.

Where to stream Miracle on 34th Street

Luckily, this one is currently streamable for Disney Plus users. But if you don’t have an account, you can still give this one a watch, and you don’t have to look very far.

On Amazon Prime, you can now buy or rent Miracle on 34th Street, the 1947 version and the 1994 remake. If you’ve yet to watch either, I’d recommend starting with the award-winning original first, and then moving onto the not too shabby ’90s redo starring Dylan McDermott and Elizabeth Perkins.

But it’s up to you where you go from here. Happy holiday streaming!
