    ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ will air on PBS, in spite of Apple TV+ rights exclusive

    Call it a vacation wonder. Apple currently announced that animated holiday classics “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will, in fact, be showing on tv this calendar year. The news will come just after some pushback in opposition to an Apple Television+ unique that discovered the Peanuts cartoons remaining pulled from Tv set broadcast.

    As we mentioned final thirty day period, the deal would mark the first time in 55 a long time the beloved Christmas distinctive would not be broadcast on network tv. The two holiday break specials appeared to be settled to a equivalent fate as the 1966 Halloween particular, “It’s the Terrific Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

    Whilst Apple’s rights experienced a clause that associated a window for absolutely free broadcast, it was difficult to shake the experience that relegating a vacation custom to a premium membership service flew in the confront of the primary special’s staunch, anti-purchaser concept.

    Thankfully, in addition to appearing on Television+, “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will show up on PBS and PBS on November 22, 2020 at 7:30 pm local time/6:30 pm CT, though “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will air on December 13, 2020 at 7:30 pm community time/6:30 pm CT.

    It’s a small victory, possibly, but these times we’ll consider them wherever we can get them. And this time with no adverts.
