There’s good news for those who prefer to do their holiday shopping from the comfort of their couch. Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime, and Hulu unveiled their digital streaming lineups for December and there are enough new movies, returning series, and heartwarming holiday specials to keep even the Grinch happy while he stays home to avoid Christmas carolers and maddening mall lines.

Netflix has an abundance of anticipated arrivals, from new seasons of critically acclaimed shows like “Peaky Blinders” and “The Crown,” to stand-up specials from Stern Show veterans Dave Chappelle, Craig Ferguson, and Judd Apatow, to its David Ayers-directed original film “Bright,” which sees Will Smith playing an L.A.P.D. officer who partners up with an orc. The streamer also offers up a cornucopia of Tim Allen-led Christmas content (from “The Santa Clause” franchise to an original called “El Camino Christmas”) in addition to quite a few acclaimed movies, like Eminem’s “8 Mile,” Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper’s “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” and both of Jim Carrey’s “Ace Ventura” flicks.

HBO Now adds a handful of recent Hollywood blockbusters in December, including Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in “Logan” as well as Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, and 2016 Stern Show guest Kate Hudson‘s real-life disaster film “Deepwater Horizon.” Other new movies include November Stern Show guest Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater” and director’s cuts of several films, including “Daredevil,” “The Exorcist,” and “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.” As for original content, the premium streamer will debut its new miniseries “Gunpowder,” starring “Game of Thrones” mainstay Kit Harrington, the season finale of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and a documentary about renowned “Washington Post” editor Ben Bradlee.

Amazon Prime, meanwhile, unveils a bunch of classic thrillers and action films, including Jodie Foster’s “The Silence of the Lambs,” Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Nightcrawler,” and five of Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” movies. Additionally, Amazon adds several acclaimed flicks from earlier this year, including “Brawl in Cell Block 99” and “It Comes at Night,” as well as a “Doctor Who Christmas Special” and the first season of its original series “Jean-Claude Van Johnson,” a comedy in which past Stern Show caller Jean-Claude Van Damme plays himself … playing a secret agent.

Hulu will add a handful of holiday movies in December, including “A Princess for Christmas,” “Chilly Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and “A Christmas Wedding Tail”—the latter of which tells the story of two dogs falling in love. The streamer also boasts several new films, from the chess classic “Searching for Bobby Fischer” to the Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen-penned comedy “Superbad,” as well as new seasons of popular TV shows, including FX’s acclaimed Marvel series “Legion.”

But those are just a few of this month’s stocking stuffers. Here’s the complete list of what’s coming to Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Amazon Prime in December:
